July 20, 2016 – Under the Radar Hitters of the Day

Today marks my final post until I return from vacation. It will be bittersweet. After all, it’s a vacation to the beach, and that’s the sweet part. The bitter comes from growing accustom to waking up every morning and in almost in robot-like fashion, sitting down to read through as many as 86 boxscores a day for readers. Today is day 109 that Jim and I have provided daily content. You just can’t shut it off folks. But damnit, I’ll try (insert sarcasm).

So, despite sitting on a beach all day staring at the Atlantic Ocean, I’ll be peeking at line scores just to see who’s towing the line. However, don’t fret. Jim has several features in store for the week in addition to his Pitcher Performances that’ll keep your palate wet until the site returns to full force on July 31st.

In fact, check out Jim’s recent2016 N.L. “Ones to Watch” Report Cardpost highlighting kids Jim tabbed as breakouts prior to the 2016 minor league season. The American League portion is soon to follow.

Thanks again for reading and have a great week.
