At first I was trying to figure out the punch line here with all the Bees talk. I was thinking of this at first...


Then I realized that was seriously the name of the team. God I love minor league team names.

I wish Brian the best.

Here is a bit of history, Mark Buehrle was a Bee. Apparently, in 1999 he was one of the cornerstones of that year's Midwest League Championship team.



Also of note Terry Bevington managed the Bees in the 1980's.

This just gave me a flashback to classic lines from the dad in Freaks and Geeks.

Saw Brain pitch last night in Clinton, IA. He looked good and topped out at 93. 2 IP 0H 0BB 3K

Anderson, Br 2.00000305.40

Good luck to him riding the bus again.

Thanks for the update. We'll all be happy to see him dominate MLB lineups soon.

I wish the White Sox would get a minor league affiliate in the Midwest League again. I wouldn't mind going to Kane County to see the Cougars play that team and see some possible future White Sox players.

I figure he'll be up in September. They have 750k invested in him this year. They have to see how he dominates MLB hitters to see if they bring him back and for how much.
