Padres call up prospect Luis Urias - The San Diego Union-Tribune

The Padres hope this call-up becomes a fixture on a playoff caliber team. His power is questionable but the rest of game looks pretty, pretty good.

Where do teams get all these prospects? The Rangers' top prospect is a kid named Taveras who is hitting .247 this year for the Down East Wood Ducks. It's a bit depressing to be in last place and have a vacant farm system.

The Down East Wood Ducks?

The Down East Wood Ducks have existed for 2 years now. Like most people, until this very minute I thought they were in Maine. Apparently they are the renamed Kinston Carolina League team and "Down East" is also the name for a part of North Carolina (which many claim does not include Kinston).
