2009 Minor League Seasons Begin Tonight

The series win up in Fenway was a great way to start the season, but switching gears I wanted to remind everyone that the farm system is ringing the dinner bell on what could shape up to be a season of feasting in the cities of Durham, Montgomery, Charlotte, and Bowling Green.  I wanted to quickly cover some basics for those that are unfamiliar with our teams and offer up some links that you may find useful.

Pretty good preview of the International League

This link should give you the option to download the article.  I thought they did a pretty good job of covering Durham and it can give you a good idea of how the other teams shape up. 

Durham Bulls roster

Montgomery Biscuits roster

Charlotte Stone Crabs roster

Bowling Green Hot Rods roster

These are courtesy of MiLB.com. I find it pretty interesting that the recently acquired Aneury Rodriguez bumped Hellboy as the new youngest player in Montgomery.  Lets hope both of them continue their success. 

Here's a link to follow the teams' success at Baseball-Reference.com 

We have awhile until the stats will be meaningful, but it doesn't mean you can't cherrypick stats to prove a point in the meantime. 

Raysprospects gives more in depth coverage of all our teams and works hard to keep you updated.

I think this should give anyone a good headstart on following our soon to be Major Leaguers as they climb that ladder in 2009.  Hopefully Durham will be able to go to back-to-back Championship Series and Montgomery will be able to get back to that stage as well.  We are breaking in a couple of new team as Charlotte has moved over from Vero Beach and Bowling Green takes over for Columbus.  I will keep you abreast of team and individual achievements throughout the year on a weekly basis.  So after you're done scouting out those links make sure you come on back.
