The Red Sox AA affiliate Portland Sea Dogs have not had a good year. As of July 18, their record stands at 32-61, 19 and a half games out of first place, thirteen games behind the next team in their division. The Sea Dogs are a case of a team without prospects, or at least ones that haven’t performed to their capabilities. Last year’s team was 88-54. Seven prospects from that team have reached the major leagues. There are 142 games in their regular season, so they are going to finish the season in last place. The prospects that generally come from the lower levels haven’t arrived yet, leading to a disappointing season in Portland. Considering the level of talent at single A Greenville this season, next season should be much better.
Let’s take a closer look at the Portland Sea Dogs.
