we need a nickname for Brett Lawrie any thoughts Thanks Jason or Kevin
Great article. Are you surprised by Yellich's stolen base numbers so far this year? 27/4 SB/CS
What is with Yellich's speed outbreak
Delgado and Minor. No chance in hell the Braves move Beachy for Beltran. Although (like in fantasy), his sell high moment may be now. thoughts
AAAA player. Think Chris Davis
Who would be on your next 10?
Great read. Do you expect Betances/ Banuelos to be up in at least September for Yankees even if in the bullpen
How is Yellich's only plus tool his bat when he is 19/4 on SB/CS this year? He also ran a 6.7 60 in high school
3:30 PM call will tell us who is closing
What's Wheeler's MLB upside?
300-20-20 too much to hope for?
Any idea who the PTBNL are?
Surprised Oswaldo Arcia got a promotion?
How do I find what place I came in (magoo66)
No mention of Nick Franklin's AA debut?
How long before Brett Lawrie plays in majors
Where's Will Carroll and his thoughts on Sir Stephen.
Very curious to see how those fielding cameras installed above stadiums are coming along (http://www.nytimes.com/2009/07/10/sports/baseball/10cameras.html). Are they still on track to be in every ballpark in the next few years, and if so can we even dream of getting useful data we can analyze from them in the next half-decade?
Is captain Kirk a top 50 or 100 prospect?
Wilking Rodriguez had no hit the K-Mets through five innings,
he came out after that but why is he not mentioned here even if he's not a big prospect
This is a great prompt. I think an article like this would be at its best focusing on a mid-round high school draftee as opposed to a top young phenom who just got a $7 million signing bonus. Just thinking about some 18 year old getting drafted maybe in the 10th or so round going off to play professional baseball really makes you wonder.
Great minds, glick.
Any chance Niese's hammy was only strained (or something less severe) before he threw that practice pitch, at which point the injury was made much, much worse? Not that I'm one of those Mets fans blaming the training staff for everything or saying this was their fault, but I'm just curious.
Glad I'm not the only one to always confuse Wade Davis and Jake McGee. Made it easier last year when McGee needed TJ surgery.
Word, this is great. Its good to see you still here, Matt.
Thanks, KG. After re-reading it, my bad for phrasing the last part of the question so weirdly.
KG, when I first heard that Harper was moving skipping his senior year of high school to be eligible for the 2010 draft, the first thing that came to my mind is that he wanted to avoid 2011 because of a possible "hard slot" or more conventional drafting system that might be put into place by then. I looked up details on the MLB Collective Bargaining Agreement, but I found that it went through the 2011 season and that it wouldn't expire before the June 2011 draft.
If that were the case, wouldn't it not be possible for the MLB to implement a more conventional draft system for 2011 or am I missing something?
Congrats, Ken. Amazing job, and the Unfiltered post sealed it for me. Looking forward to reading what you have to say here on BP.
What about a how would you fix an organization type thing. For example, contestants could choose an organization that either was below .500 last year, or is below .500 this season and write up an article as to how they would go about fixing them if they were the GM.
Hardcore analysis could obviously be necessary and identifying an organization's biggest weaknesses (both in the majors and minors) and what type of players would help fix them would be very important.
These four contestants have been my favorites from the beginning and I'd love to see how they would take on this task.
How far do you think this will cause him to slip? He won't make it past the supplemental round even with this, right?
Completely agree. This is a great topic and personally, one of my favorites.
Kevin, what do you think of Chris Heisley's performance in AA so far? He's a 24 year old, but is hitting to a line of .378/.458/.616 with 8 homers and 10 stolen bases for the Mudcats. With the Reds trotting the likes of Chris Dickerson and Lance Nix out in the outfield regularly, do you think Heisley could be primed for a call up at some point in the near future?
I really enjoyed Tim's into article, and I think this submission is again among the best of the bunch. He's got a very inviting and humorous style and I found this to be an incredibly interesting and thought provoking article. Great job overall.
This is amazing, Jeremy, and its a shame you won't be able to continue on in the competition. Good luck with whatever it is that came up in your life.
Thats amazing, thanks a ton Kevin!
Beautiful writeup on Adenhart, Joe. You certainly did not fail in that regard.
I think the idea of trading Kazmir from the Rays perspective and I think it makes alot of sense for them, but if they looked to move Sonnanstine, does anybody think the Mets should jump on that opportunity? I think the non-Johan part of the Mets rotation leaves a ton to be desired and is not quite up to snuff come playoff time (*knocks on wood*)
With the Rays need for a corner outfielder, and their lack of a spot for Sonnanstine once Price arrives, how do you guys like a potential Nick Evans and Jenrry Mejia for Sonnanstine swap between the two teams?
Dead on. This has nothing to do with race and the treatment of Clemens and McGwire prove it. The racism card never made any sense to me with regards to Bonds mostly because it was Hank Aaron\'s record he was breaking, and the condemnation of Clemens and McGwire just goes further to prove that race had nothing to do with it.
I am a diehard mets fan. I know there are players on the team now that probably used steroids and other illegal substances. And now I am as devestated as ever.
But I would rather this be our fate then to have us win with Barry Bonds. It would have been zero gratification, and mets history would be marked with a big huge astirisk forever. Not to mention, we could never brag to Yankees or Phillies fans about this hypothetic triumph without being met by laughs, jeers and constant reminders of how we cheated our way to success. And the thing about it is that they would all be right.
