What are the chances that Hill finds himself on the top 101?
Where would Marco Gonzales have placed had he been in MiLB?
So you have Victor Roache on here. He hasn't played since 5/21...the same day since his last tweet. Where on earth is he?
What are the prospects on Stetson Allie's new career choice?
What are the scouting reports on Thairo Estrada and Alex Palma?
A little surprised Drew Hutchison didn't get love on the Top Under 25...what are the latest scouting reports on him? What is his upside?
How close was Slade Heathcott to making this list?
What about someone like Mike Morse for the Nats? Granted he wasn't a full-timer, but he put up some very solid numbers across all righty/lefty, home/away splits - and that sporadic playing time has to help the case - no?
Working in the pro sports industry, I can tell you two things:
1) This is an incredible piece of writing that I agree with 150%.
2) This is true from a front office perspective as well. It's amazing to watch teams scale back front offices and hope for success on the field - only to watch that blow up in their faces. Teams that invest in people, and create an atmosphere of hope (see Trail Blazers post Jail Blazers) can start selling tickets BEFORE a team makes the jump, so the fan can say they were there for the jump (the Orioles would be a great example where this might work).
Just a terrific, terrific article.
Anything else you can tell us about Sample? He seemed to have some solid success in the Appy League - Are there any upside comps on who his stuff resembles? What are the big red flags?
