With “first halves” of the minor league season over, Darren Black and Brett Ballantini spent No. 30, looking at the best player at each level, with some game-show wrinkles:
- Hot call-up pick Yolbert Sánchez seems to not be a clear-cut MVP at Birmingham or Charlotte, so what gives?
- In fact, for the Knights, Darren has a wild MVP pick
- Birmingham’s MVP is sort of a given, considering Lenyn Sosa is still in Alabama. Did any of you foresee Davis Martin’s ascendance, though?
- It’s Bryan Ramos vs. Oscar Colás in Winston-Salem — and hey, notice how there aren’t really any pitchers mentioned as MVPs?
- Colson Montgomery is the one player who clearly came into the season as the Kannapolis MVP, and has played like it — but Darren points to a player who at the moment may be even more intriguing
- Bonus round: Who’s the next Charlotte call-up not on the 40-man roster?
