"Yo MDS. Join the fanclub, the Sons of Beachy."
Today was a bad day for the Million Dollar Sleeper. I turned 29-years old on Monday and today I was ticketed for Minor Consumption. How does that happen? I'll tell you how. The Atlanta Braves sent Mike Minor packing to AAA Gwinnett, in favor of Brandon Beachy, after I ranked the prospect No. 33 among my SP ranks and drafted him in numerous leagues. I think I owned Minor in three or four leagues, I'm too depressed to count. In case you're wondering, Minor was sporting a 0.69 ERA through 10 IP this Spring (7/4 K/BB). By now I think I've graduated to Step Five in the grieving process. The initial shock and denial have subsided after an explosion of tweets, but the pain is still lingering, I'm definitely angry and I'm feeling depressed as I write this... OK, I'm still on Step Two. I had to wait a number of hours before beginning work on a Brandon Beachy projection (I would have punished him for stealing Minor's job). Now the work is done and the numbers are available, make the jump for your Brandon Beachy projection.
