News from the Farm: 11/29/10

A loooooong holiday weekend (and what I call “The Griswold Effect”) put yours truly in quite the tizzy and delayed last week’s look at the Southeast Division’s AHL affiliates off until late last night. (It also completely stymied my intended follow-up to Saturday morning’s piece about the Washington Capitals 6-0 drubbing of the Tampa Bay Lightning being a sobering dose of reality for the Bolts, which was to be about the dissatisfaction of Saturday night’s shootout loss to Florida. Oh well… Moving on…)

The latest episode of The Bolts Beat podcast will post this evening, so keep your eyes peeled for that. (I’m back in studio this week and ready to blast a few people.)

Lots to catch up on from the American League last week (including a wild, 10-8 game between Grand Rapids and Chicago, which is worth at least a look at the box score for Tomas Tatar’s 7-point showing), so let’s get right to it:
