How about a few lines about a "Fallen Prospect?" Every team has a Tim Alderson or Fautino de los Santos, but there's few places where we can find out why they're struggling.

A co-worker told me that there is a cap on the number of Type-A free agents a team can sign in one off-season. Is this true? And what is the cap?

Sorry, Collins, but my earlier comment was hidden because of negative ratings, even though it was in no way obnoxious. What we\'re seeing here is politics bringing out the worst in people, which is exactly why I don\'t like politics brought up on a baseball site.

johnpark, Thanks for the props. I called him out because he\'s in charge of BP.com. I agree with you that Will does not mix in politics (he\'s my favorite author here regardless).

Will Carroll, Based on my careful PECOTA-style analysis of the \'comments\' section, it seems like a lot of people are upset at the inclusion of a political figure in our baseball life. It seems like people give similar complaints every time politics are brought up (e.g. Nate and Derek\'s columns). Could I politely suggest that next time BP writers check their politics at the door?

Will, On the espn.com page that you linked at the bottom, one of the voters (Pedro Gomez) voted for Jay Bell. Wow. I\'m speechless.

oira61, i realize that you were just trying to make an analogy (and that your intentions were noble), but please don\'t bring non-baseball politics into the discussion. there are many of us that don\'t buy the \"majority\" view on many current issues, yet still can criticize the AP for its baseball coverage.

1. Some individual defensive stat (i.e. fielding runs) 2. Mid-season \"updates\" for park factors 3. EQA and SNVLAR for minor leagues

This doesn\'t solve our infield problem. Our projected starting infield (Barton, Ellis, Crosby, and Chavez) had a combined -3.8 VORP last year. And our rotation (Duke, Eveland, Braden, Gallagher, and Outman) is solid, not strong. Our farm system has great depth but lacks a true #3 hitter. Holliday solves this problem for now, but how good will he be in 5 years when our best prospects (Cahill, Anderson, Doolittle, Cardenas, Weeks, Carter) will be entering their primes?

I\'m fine with these little tidbits, so long as the person being written about is not an elected politician or running for office.
