Down on the Farms

While the Mariners lost in close fashion yesterday, they fell 2 1/2 games behind the Rangers. When you look at the future Mariners is also a mixed bag of where the teams are this year.

AAA Tacoma Rainiers 24-33 10 GB
The Rainiers have had a rough go with guys up and down to Seattle. They are 3-7 in their last 10.

AA Jackson Generals 34-22 1 GB of Tennessee
The Generals are on a tear going 8-2 in their last 10. Many of the future of the M's in AA right now.

High A High Desert Mavericks 28-28 3 GB of Rancho Cucamonga
The Mavericks are 6-4 in their last 10. The California League is tough to judge. The Mavericks do play in thin air though.

Low A Clinton LumberKings 18-39 20 GB
This is a very young team and it looks like they will only improve over time as they move up.

Short Season Everett AquaSox
The AquaSox return to action on the 22nd of this month for short season ball.

Rookie Pulaski Mariners
Many of the young kids that will get drafted this year will most likely be in Virginia soon. They start on the 21st of June.

If any of these teams play in your area, go give the Mariners farmies some love.

  1. Update on the Generals. They lost to the Smokies today, 6-5. They're now 2 Games Behind Tennessee.

    I was at the game on Saturday night. The Generals looked good. But I have to root for the hometown team.
