    How does Chia-jen Lo go from one of the last cuts on the major league team to being stuck in Florida in extended ST? Did he get injured?

    To be fair, it is an A&M system school, so you weren't entirely wrong.

    I don't think so. Might be concerned about how much work he would get in with the current piggyback system going on.

    Of course... MiLB.com GameDay has been extended to all teams. It'll be in a banner at the very top of their home pages.

    (*currently waiting for my CM status. Chipped in $25 last week.)

    Here's the Astros' minor league affiliates MILB scoreboard page: http://www.milb.com/scoreboard/index.jsp?sid=milb&org=117&ymd=20130404

    For some reason the gameday link is only coming up for the Hooks but its a quick and dirty if you wanna follow every affiliate easily.

    That audio blows. Too bad they aren't on TV.

    By the way, don't trust the QC GameDay. It's glacially slow.

    Ariel Ovando gets an outfield assist as he erases Wilson Contreras, who was trying for a triple. Joe Sclafani also gets an assist as the cutoff man.
