Thursday was the last day of regular season AFL action, with the AFL Championship game set for Saturday afternoon at 3pm, and there was all of 11 runs scored in the 3 games. Before I get to the top performers from Thursday's games, here are a few tweets from BP's Kevin Goldstein:
My No. 14 prospect for the #Royals would rank No. 3 on my#Orioles list.
Best. Idea. Ever. RT @PeteAbe: Just to cause trouble, the#RedSox should say they like Jeter as a 3B and offer him two years and $25 million
I love the idea of the second tweet. Would love to see the Yankees sweat over this, even though I think they are going to sign him to a bad contract. The first tweet is actually amazing when you think about it.

Starter Jhoulys Chacin is "untouchable" in trade talks a Rockies’ team source told me. Tyler Matzek and Christian are close to off limits as well.
