DateQuestionAnswer
2016-06-20 16:00:00 (link to chat)Who is the best team you have seen in your scouting life?
(Larry from NC)
I will preface this by saying that I have not been scouting for that long. I have probably been unaware of the talent of other teams while at games.

But I will say 2014 Myrtle Beach Pelicans. I did my summer internship down there and attended far too many games. Here are the major leaguers from that team: Joey Gallo, Cody Ege, Odubel Herrera, Hanser Alberto, Alexander Claudio, Keone Kela, Chi Chi Gonzalez, Andrew Faulkner, Abel De Los Santos.

While these guys are not in the big leagues yet, they will be soon: Nick Williams, Lewis Brinson, Chris Bostick, Jorge Alfaro, Ryan Cordell, Jose LeClerc, Samuel Wolff

And some other interesting guys with value: Preston Beck, Victor Payano, Kellin Deglan, Michael De Leon, Christopher Garia, Chad Bell

Man was that team loaded... (Steve Givarz)
2013-08-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is Alexander Claudio the Rangers closer in 2015? Or is 2016 more realistic?
(Jamey from Dallas)
Why not September 2013? (Jason Cole)
2013-05-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hi Jason. Can you tell me about a pitcher on the Crawdads named Alexander Claudio? His early numbers really jump out at you.
(michaelmcduffe from ottawa)
Great early numbers, but definitely more solid lower-level org type than prospect. Sidearming lefty who sits mid-80s with sink, touching 88, and a serious bugs bunny changeup. That thing is mid-60s from sidearm with screwball-like action. Fun to watch, but not really a prospect. (Jason Cole)
