This is the same timeline as:

The end of the first half of the minor league seasons, with both Kannapolis and Winston-Salem in first place and hoping to qualify for the postseason;

The influx of draftees into the system (mostly to Great Falls);

Players who stayed in Arizona for Extended Spring Training moving to affiliates;

Kopech potentially being called up to Chicago;

Eloy being promoted to Charlotte;

A bunch of cascading sets of promotions across all levels.

I think itís likely that both Kanny and W-S win their respective first half titles/playoff berths, and given the sheer depth at those levels it wouldnít surprise me to see both clubs - even with significantly different rosters - win their respective second-half titles. Further, I think itís possible that an influx
of talent to Birmingham from W-S could propel the Barons to a second-half playoff berth.
The universe is the practical joke of the General at the expense of the Particular, quoth Frater Perdurabo, and laughed. The disciples nearest him wept, seeing the Universal Sorrow. Others laughed, seeing the Universal Joke. Others wept. Others laughed. Others wept because they couldn't see the Joke, and others laughed lest they should be thought not to see the Joke. But though FRATER laughed openly, he wept secretly; and really he neither laughed nor wept. Nor did he mean what he said.
