Jose Ramirez keeps hitting as he moves up the ladder
When you think of the prototypical baseball player, a few images probably come to mind: tall, muscular, fast, top physical condition, etc. In other words, baseball players are not supposed to look like you, me, and Jose Ramirez. Ramirez is roughly my size at 5’9”, 165 pounds and generally does not fit the stereotype of a baseball player, but the IBI's Jim Piascik loves his potential and recently had a chance to sit down and talk with him about his success to date.

Around The Farm, April 17, 2013
The Akron Aeros headlined the action down on the farm last night, as Tyler Holt, Giovanny Urshela, Jesus Aguilar, and friends headed an offensive charge that led to 10 runs and a win. The Lake County Captains also won, somehow scoring seven runs on five hits (only one of which went for extra bases). Columbus and Carolina lost thanks to some suspect pitching, but there were still encouraging performances to enjoy. Join Jim Piascik as he takes you through the good and the bad as he goes Around The Farm.

Aguilar Drives in Four as Aeros Roll Thunder, 10-6
Jesus Aguilar cracked a pair of two-run singles Wednesday afternoon, leading the Akron Aeros to a 10-6 victory over the Trenton Thunder at Arm and Hammer Park.
The second of Aguilar’s big hits came in the top of the ninth inning off Dannny Burawa (1-1), and snapped a 6-6 tie. With the bases loaded, Aguilar smoked a Burawa pitch back through the middle and into center field, scoring Tyler Holt and Jose Ramirez to make it 8-6.

Launching Off With The Aeros: 4/9/13 – 4/15/13
Things could have been better for the Akron Aeros over the past week, with the team dropping five of their six games and falling to the bottom of the Eastern League. The pitching was the culprit for the Aeros, as the team allowed almost a run an inning. Almost no offense in baseball can make up for that, even though Akron's offense did a decent job. To see who was hot in Akron and who was not, check out Launching Off With The Aeros, after the jump...

Aeros lose third straight, falling to Thunder 5-3
The Akron Aeros lost the series opener to the Trenton Thunder 5-3 at Arm & Hammer Park Monday night, giving the team their third straight loss. The Aeros are now 3-8 on the season and have lost five out of their last six games. Baseball took a backseat Monday after the tragic events in Boston, though. Donate blood. Donate money. Donate time. Keep the victims and heroes in your thoughts and prayers. Do whatever you want, but some things are more important than baseball.

Poor pitching and defense lead to Aeros' 9-5 loss
Akron pitchers continued their collective inability to prevent runs Sunday as the Akron Aeros lost 9-5 to the Bowie Baysox at Prince George's Stadium. The Baysox took three of the four games in the series while averaging seven runs per game. The Aeros have allowed 59 runs through 10 games, setting a pace that is nearly impossible for the offense to keep up with. The defending Eastern League champions have now lost seven of their first 10 games as they simply cannot keep opposing teams off the scoreboard.

Pitching falters again as Aeros fall 7-6
A terrible illness seems to be seeping down from the big league club and infecting the pitchers on the Akron Aeros' staff. Akron fell to the Bowie Baysox at Prince George's Stadium 7-6 after the team gave up seven runs for the second consecutive night. The Aeros have allowed 50 runs in nine games on the season -- a shocking 5.56 runs per game -- the key reason for their slow 3-6 start.

Around The Farm:  April 12, 2013
For the first time in a while, there were no rainouts on the farm and every team was in action. The return to action was not pretty for everyone, as Daisuke Matsuzaka and the Lake County defense struggled mightily. There were some positives, though, like the late-game heroics from Chun Chen for the Aeros and more power from Bryson Myles. Join Arthur Kinney as he navigates it all and goes Around The Farm.

Aeros Capture Extra-Inning Win over Baysox

Chen was 2-4, with three RBI in the game, and raised his average to .320. He belted a two-run double off the wall in left field in the seventh, part of a five run Aeros rally.

Seven run inning propels Clippers to 7-6 victory in home opener
An early inning hit parade would be all that the Clippers needed to hang on and defeat the Indianapolis Indians 7-6 in their home opener at Huntington Park Friday. The Clippers broke out the lumber in the bottom of the second, scoring all seven of their runs off of Indianapolis starter Kyle McPherson.

Around the Farm: April 11, 2013
It was a quiet night all around in the Indians system as the rain in the midwestern and eastern areas of the United States resulted in rainouts in Cleveland and Columbus, and Lake County's game was called after six innings. But there was still plenty to talk about from Thursday's minor league action, and Tony steps in with some thoughts on several of the performances on the night.

Manager Edwin Rodriguez was happy to see the offense appear while avoiding a sweep to start the season.
