Wow !!!! Rich "Lead" Piper is a Monster. When he swings say goodbye to the baseball. Maybe the best hitting prospect I've seen .........EVER!! Of course I had him ranked #1 on my board....Rats!!
A good hitter with some defensive skills. Health rating concerns me but he's almost cooked and ready for the Bigs.
This kid will be a good pitcher but will struggle against lefties. with his good defensive and hitting skills(for a pitcher) . He may be best in the N L.
After holding out for more cash . Justin "Time" Brantley finally signed........wait for it..........wait for it...........JUST IN TIME. Boom.... there it is!! Thats the sound of the Ball leaving the park. He will Mash the baseball and be a good defensive 3rd baseman.
Mule "Skinner" Crawford will be carving up M L batters in a couple years.With good control and splits his 4 seam fastball will be effective. Mule Skinner also has N L hitting skills.
This Talented outfield glove man will hit RH pitching well. His range may hurt him in CF.And at age 22 he may not reach projections. But still hes a solid pick.
Can you hear that Tune?? It's Al Stewarts "The Year Of The Bat". Paul "Gone" West will be a annual MVP canidate. With a weak glove, he will be best as a DH. But still won't embarass you at 1st.
This young control starting pitcher may do well in the bigs. It wil depend on his health. The DL may hinder his development. If luck holds, this prospect will be a good one.
I had Yorvit "beans and" Franco ranked #3. This 3 pitch pitcher can go deep in games and should lead the league in Complete games. Not much of a defender though.
A corbon copy of Beans and Franco. But Yieco "Logical" Ramirez is better. He definatly will lead the league in Complete games. Didn't see him on my board...too bad.
This guy is a 5 tool player. There is nothing he can't do. He won't wow you like the #1 overall. but he can play any position and hit for average with 20-30 homers a year. Nice!!!
this is the first relief pitcher picked. And he's a good one. With his great defensive skills he would make a great Closer. Future FOY!! And as a extra thing to think about. He might be able to play 1st base in a pinch.
I had moved Bert #2 on my board . basically he was the best lefty I could see. And he can hit some for my N L team. His defensive glove work may cost me.
Buddy "Colon" Koloff will never strike out. If he plays in a park with the infield at +3+3+3 or better . He will be a batting champ. Speed and Contact are always good!! But he will have to play LF/1ST base. And his health may slow his development.
This pick is a solid LH Starting Pitcher. He will go deep into games picking up a complete one here or there. R H hitting could be a problem. And his lack of range may be nulified by a great glove.
This is the first DH pick who may play 1st in a pinch. If you like Left throwing 1st basemen? He will struggle against RH pitching. But the ball will leave the Yard when he connects.
What we have here is a great defensive CF'er. Throw in 40 stolen bases and a .300+ average. You have a great find at #17.IF!!! he reaches projections. But the reason he fell may be his lack of make-up. Atlanta will need a max traing budget for him to reach projections. Thats why he dropped to #14 on my list.
Not signed By LOUSVILLE HOWLERS. He wants a 2,400,000 bonus. Altough he can play good defense his hitting splits will be a liability. Perhaps thats why lousville has passed on signing him.
