2010 Farmstros Five- Week 17

Since all the teams in the system are gone from any pennant contention, I am foregoing the team results portion of this feature.

The Farmstros Five for the week of July 29-August 4, 2010:

The Top Performer:

Jonathan Villar, IF, Lancaster. Villar was obtained from Philadelphia in the Roy Oswalt trade. The Astros promoted him to High A Lancaster. In his first week there, he went 7 for 17 with three doubles and five RBI.

The Other Four:

Jake Buchanan, P, Tri-City. In one start, Buchanan threw six scoreless innings allowing two hits and striking out three.

Jacob Goebbert, OF, Lexington. Goebbert was 11 for 25 with four doubles, one home run and nine RBI.

Michael Affronti, IF, Corpus Christi. Affronti was 10 for 24 with one double, one triple and seven RBI.

Kody Hinze, 1B, Lexington. Hinze jumped back on the radar this week going 10 for 26 with five doubles, two home runs and six RBI.

NOTE: Due to numerous factors, I will be suspending the Farmstros Five. It takes quite a bit of time to accumulate all the statisitics and go through them every week. This is exacerbated by my slow computer. I don't have the time to do it for a while, and will be scaling back Farmstros in general. My number one priority with the site is to complete THE QUEST FOR 3000 SYLLABLES and turn it into a book after Labor Day. I will attempt to keep the database updated. Other than that, posting will be at a minimum.

Thanks for your following.
