Lindor and Naquin are Fishing for Mudcats
The Carolina Mudcats just aren't very good right now. The team has been riddled with injury since the middle of April, but even with the missing starters, have had a hard time plating runners. Three guys that haven't been struggling are #1 picks Francisco Lindor and Tyler Naquin, who really are the leaders of this ballclub. You throw in starter Cody Anderson, who's been dominant of late, and you have three of the most intriguing prospects in the system. Join Jim Pete, as he goes Fishing for Mudcats.

Around The Farm: May 15, 2013
If you like great pitching performances, then you might want to avert your eyes from last night in the Cleveland organization. The pitching at each of the affiliates left something to be desired, leaving the onus on the offense to make something happen. Some teams did better than others, especially a sometimes-forgotten outfielder in Lake County. To find out who this is and all you need to know about what happened in the minor leagues last night, join Jim Piascik go Around The Farm.

Closing Games Haunts Mudcats in Losing Streak
On a beautiful night at Five County Stadium, Carolina Mudcats pitcher Jacob Lee challenged the Red Sox batters through the sixth inning, though Salem caught up with him in the seventh inning. After a great start, both offensively and defensively, the momentum slowed and the Mudcats inability to consistently close games haunted them yet again as Salem took the late lead and the 5-4 victory.

Fishing for Mudcats: Jordan Smith finds his groove
The Carolina Mudcats continue to hit the ball well, but the fact that they can't seem to drive in runs combined with a pitching staff that has a hard time not allowing runs has left the Muddies with a bad mix for winning. Jordan Smith, Luigi Rodriguez, Jerrud Sabourin and Cody Anderson carried the team this week, but not far enough for a winning record in week 5. Go fishing with the Jim Pete and your Carolina Mudcats...
