2010 all-rookie team

Clearly, we're in the midst of an historic year for rookies. It's pretty astonishing to consider just how strong of a team you could put together with just rookies. I'll try to put together a 25...

Pedro Alvarez: has the time for concern arrived?

I've just traded away Pedro Alvarez in a 30 team DMB league (for Chase Headley and Franklin Morales), mostly because I'm starting to get spooked that he's in some sort of Andy Marte-Alex Gordon...

Sim League 2009 Amateur Draft Results

I'm in a pretty active, fun 30 team sim league; we just completed a five round amateur draft of guys from the 2009 draft and IFAs (not including Aroldis, who signed too late). Each team has a 50...

Top 35 Sally League Prospects

Now that we've seen a chunk of the season, it might be fun to speculate on the top 20 to 30 prospects in a league. I did this list in about a half-hour, so I'm certain there are some oversights. I...

Lars Anderson v. Chris Carter

I remember last year I had the poor sense to post my own top 32 prospects list, which was riddled w/ blindspots, oversights, and bad calls (no Stanton, C. Santana, Smoak, Hanson, etc). I have come...

DMB keeper league -- draft recap

I'm in my second year in a DMB keeper league with salaries and minor league systems. The draft lasts just 5 rounds, and basically everyone is eligible to be drafted except players still in high...

How do you use John's book?

So, we're over halfway through the 2008, and after thumbing through John's book while giving old Mr. Brown a pinch, I was wondering how people utilize the book. Other than bathroom material, I...

Guys having better seasons than the stats say

Two guys from the Twins. First is Wilson Ramos, whom some of us were very high on coming into this year as he has great tools and athleticism, hit very well as a young player in the MWL, and is...

All Prospect Team

Easy enough. Just guys in the minors are eligible, this is the squad I'd want in my organization; I tend to upside and risk over surety.   C: Matt Weiters 1B: Matt LaPorta 2B: Chris Valaika 3...

Zach Daeges

So, coming into this year, he was thought of as your prototypical C+/C level guy--a 6th round pick out of Creighton in 2006, he mashed at Lancaster at 330/423/579. Nice numbers, but his age,...

Cape Fear Update: First Base

I was really looking forward to Wily Mo doing an Around the Cape of Cuddles or whatever for each of the positions, but he's been busy going to yard sales with John's wife, I guess.  Anyway, I'm...

Billy Rowell, criminally underrated

So, after he was drafted, Rowell hit rookie ball pitching really well and was a super hot prospect -- I think John gave him a B+ and he looked to be maybe the best high school hitter in his class. ...

Beau Mills v Dexter Fowler

Two different types of guys, but I would guess at the same level of prospect value. And both with strange first names.Mills is looking like he's limited to 1B, but he has been described as having...

The Twins Farm System: a Compendium (with Poll!)

Is Hong Chih Kuo the next Bedard? Poll!

I think Kuo is getting written off way too quickly by ye olde conventional wisdom, as I think he's exactly the sort of guy who delivers on his early promise (like Bedard), but a few years later...

Second Tier Hitters

Second Tier Pitchers, part two
