I will say that there seem to be a very large number of players who were in the Dominican or Venezuelan Summer Leagues last year, and who flew under the radar a bit. There are also some names that I expected to see that didn't show up on either the Elizabethton or GCL rosters -- which begs of the question of where exactly they are (there are a number of possibilities). It's always interesting this time of year, and I'll do my best to keep up with any transactions as they take place.
Finally, congrats to the Twins on a solid series sweep of the Nationals. I know I'm very much looking forward to the D'Backs series over the weekend.
Oh yes -- great match today in the UEFA European Championship, as Germany took out Portugal 3-2. If you haven't been watching this event, I suggest you at least give it a try this weekend. There have been some clunkers in the tournament so far, but games like today's are ample evidence that soccer can be a great game to watch when executed well.
