I saw P.S. Eliot in Gainesville a couple of years back, really fun live. You guys usually feature artists on Don Giovanni records, is there some kind of an affiliation that you have with them? Sorry to pry, I just think it's really neat

Former P.S. Eliot on the BP podcast? Worlds I never thought would collide, this is so bizarre.

Great stuff. In addition to Molina's subtle framing, he has a great rapport with umpires which i'm sure has aided in many borderline calls.

He isn't on the DSL roster so he should be stateside playing for the GCL Blue Jays

well there was also a double there and 2 SB to bring his total up to 14 on the year. I understand he probably won't be a burner in the majors because of his size. Still seems significant to me

No Lansing? When Aaron Sanchez gets there, that team is going to be PACKED with prospects. Hutchison, Perez, Pierre, Marisnick, Hobson, Knecht, Crouse.

Just to add on, this format is exactly what's lacking on baseball prospect websites. Not to force your hand in the future but this is exactly the kind of content that will keep me reading these scouting reports. Again, great job!

I LOVE that you used the 20-80 scale to break down the repertoires, hoping that continue this format for other 2011 draft talents. Great work!

Don't forget Jeroloman, he may be 25 but he's one of the best defensive catcher in the minors and putting up ridiculous numbers in the eastern league.

Hey Christina, all signs are pointing to the jays going with Mike McCoy instead of Reed and Gathright, he can play the outfield and the infield. He also has a high walk rate.

Good work out the Toronto 25 man roster, my only changes would be McCoy instead of Reed, there have been quite a few reports that he is ahead of Reed and Gathright for the bench spot.

I'm a relatively new reader of Baseball Prospectus and of your work in general so my suggestion probably isn't all that helpful. With that said, I really enjoyed your piece on the pittsburgh pirates rebuild. Can't wait to get my hands on your book when it's completed, best of luck on the process!

Yeah I would have thought that Stewart was a 4 star prospect, regardless, i'm in agreeance with the your views on the three lefties, definitely like rzep the best, cecil needs to get his stuff down in the zone if he wants to stick around for more than three innings and romero's stuff really fell off a cliff after the all star break.

In addition to Joe's pieces i'm also gonna miss the chats, he was the best at sticking around and getting to almost all the questions. Will be missed.

Any word on Donald Veal, seems like in a league full of top offensive prospects, a pitcher shutting them all down would be a story.

What's the word on owens' fastball? I've heard that his change is great but i've heard nothing on any other pitch with the exception of very good control.

The Pirates certainly don't look like the next coming of the rays or the rangers but the most encouraging part of the rebuild so far has to be their last couple of drafts, to me, teams not spending big money on the draft has to be the biggest money ball deficiency going in baseball today. Look what the red sox do every year by throwing an extra 500,000 at a two sport athlete in the later rounds, sure they don't all turn out but it's a much better plan than unloading 40 million dollars on a free agent that is anything but a sure thing. The fact that in the MLB, teams get three years of pre arbitration for their young players at league minimum, has not been taken advantage of by most major league baseball teams. It's simply a luxury not afforded to any of the other major sports.

Do you have a link to historical splits for minor leaguers? I just saw that stats are very good this year against righties and lefties, that combined with the successful jump to double a has to be very encouraging. What would you do with Dopirak, is there much of a point sending him to the friendly hitting confines of the PCL? Or do you just let him finish up the year in New Hampshire and fight for a roster spot next year?

Don't want to sound like a homer here but Richmond is a really interesting case that I don't think is easily measured in statistics. When he was starting for the jays last season he looked completely and totally mediocre and after a rocky first start his stuff and location has become gradually better almost with every passing game, what looked like a show me curveball now looks plus at times, what once was a 88-90 straight fastball, now sits 90-93 with sink. An incredibly odd case considering that he is 29 or 30 years old but it might have something to do with never having professional instruction on pitching in the independent leagues. In that first cleveland game, it was like lefties were taking batting practice off of him and just destroying the ball but ever since them i've felt more and more confident with him against lefties, even if he is still not terribly effective and even with the yankees blow up. His curveball has at times been a swing and miss pitch against lefties.

Eeeeeep, I think you are really really really off base on Aaron Hill, he still doesn't walk much but the contact, power, and defense are for real. The guy hit 47 doubles and 17 homers in his last full season and is coming into his prime.

Eeesh, I don\'t know, maybe there should be a six star rating or something because the difference between prospects like Tommy Hanson and Bowden feels pretty significant. very good third starter I can buy as a five star prospect, I think that was Carrasco? But a solid third starter, aye I don\'t know.
