    Love the content…

    Donny Sands is the Catcher for the Tarpons. Jerry Sands was a guy who, I think, was once traded for Manny Ramirez.

    I think it’s been a pretty solid year on the farm. Some of the guys that we were expecting to have big years have not (mostly due to injury). But, they still had some very promising years from both pitchers and position players throughout the system.
