Over the next few weeks I will recap the 2010 season of each affiliate. This week will focus on the overall season, next week will cover the hitting leaders and the final week will be pitching leaders.

  1. FYI - I would have switched #'s 2 and 13

  2. Surprised to see Bellatti on the list at #19. Apparently the writer is not aware of his off the field issues. BTW, his trial is December 6th in San Diego. I'll update as I learn more. If you are unaware, he's facing up to 7 1/2 years for vehicular manslaughter and other charges.
