    Just like 2003 (give or take $100 million): with the big cats in a tail spin, I find myself taking solace in the success of the minor league teams: Colectively, they’re 13-2 so far by my count, with some big hitting from folks like Larish and Sizemore, and some nice pitching from Porcello in particular.
