Question for fans of MLB teams

Do you follow your minor league clubs or do you not give a shit?

I check Tacoma's win/loss record when looking at Zephyr's stats but that's it. I went to a Zephyrs/Rainiers game a few years ago to see Adam Jones before they traded him to Baltimore.

I keep track of the Padres' top prospects but I could give two shits about the W-L of the farm teams.

Red Sox fan. I follow Pawtucket (AAA) and Portland (AA) - none of the "A" teams or "short-season" teams though. When the Red Sox have an off day, NESN sometimes carries either Pawtucket or Portland games.

I check on the top Braves prospects' season stat-lines every week or so and read scouting reports when available. Don't follow game-by-game and certainly don't care whether the minor league clubs win or lose.

Braves AA team plays 5 games a year in Knoxville, so I usually try to make it to a couple of those games.

re: Question for fans of MLB teams
I don't necessarily care about the minor league teams. Hell, I don't really know much about the prospects unless they are being talked about on the internet. I couldn't tell you the starting 5, or defensive starters for the AAA Braves. Besides, trying to watch 162 games a year is hard enough as it is. I don't need to attempt to keep up with the minor league teams as well.

I love minor league baseball, but follow my local teams rather than major league team's affiliates.

I follow most of the big prospects we have and a few guys I'm interested in.

I don't really care, but I know a little bit about the Tigers AAA (Toledo). I haven't followed much this year, though.

re: Question for fans of MLB teams
I keep up with our prospects and occasionally I'll watch a minor league game just to see a specific prospect.

Right now, as an Astros fan, that's about all we have.

re: Question for fans of MLB teams
Some what, like others have said I will keep up with a few prospects but for the most part not really. It doesn't intrigue me to know a career minor leaguer finally has an era under 4.00.

I will watch the games however because sometimes you catch a prospects who becomes a star later.

Same for me. In other words I follow the minor leagues only to the extent it is likely to affect the major league club (Nats) in the short to mid term.

Minor league baseball is a ton of fun though. Cheap and a good activity for groups of friends or families. If I lived in a city with a minor league team I would go and support that team, regardless of its big league affiliate.

I look at box scores and player stats. I don't look at their records much.
