BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2014 Due to publishing agreements, the 2014 player comments and team essays are only available in the Baseball Prospectus 2014 book (available in hardcopy, e-book, and Kindle).
2009 Thomas Pham's batting average wasn't pretty, but a 20-year-old putting up a .224 ISO in the Midwest League is worth noticing.
