Did Binghamton even have a chance? This is one of the best assembled squads in all of minor league ball. Two prizes of the Hamels windfall had big series'. Jake Thompson went a career-high 9 innings in his second ever minor league post-season appearance. The offense was just electric each game, with everyone contributing in some way.

Clearwater's season ended with a wimper, as the offense couldn't solve Daytona's pitching. They lost the best of 3 series despite stellar pitching from Ricardo Pinto and John Richy (obtained in the Chase Utley deal). Rhys Hoskins couldn't carry the series despite hitting yet another dinger, his 18th on the season.

Williamsport also struggled to produce runs behind three fantastic pitching performances. Franklyn Kilome's curveball was on point in his first postseason start. Both coaches and his own catcher raved about his location with the pitch. Combine that with his plus fastball, you can see why many scouts and fans are excited about his potential.
