Breakout Pitchers

A few people pitching their way on to my radar:Dustin Richardson, 6'5" lefty in the Red Sox org.  In the Sally league.  35/11 k/bb ratio in 24.2 innings.Brandon Hynick, Rockies org.  6'3" righty....


Trade suggestions: J. Reyes, Arroyo for Swisher, Duke

I have been offered Nick Swisher, Zach Duke, and Bobby Kielty.  Swisher would provide some middle of the order pop, Duke a young arm, and Kielty a solid platoon guy.  This is who I would have to...


MATT DESALVO vs Mike Pelfrey

Inspired by some recent smackdowns, I'd like to initiate another one here between two talented "hurlers" that will someday pitch in the "Big Apple."  Both are gamers, look good in a uniform, and...


Alex Escobar: Back from the Dead?

So, former super prospect Alex Escobar is showing signs of life in part time play for the Nats.  His line over 60 at bats: 345/375/569.  A small sample size, but an encouraging performance so far,...


Tigers trade for Sean Casey

Apparently for a minor league pitcher, though who hasn't been specified.  I would guess maybe Wil Ledezma?  That would seem like a fair deal -- Ledezma has struggled a bit in the majors, but also...


Arredondo makes leap to AA, throws CG shutout

The Angels' converted SS and now dominating pitching prospect Jose Arredondo struckout 8 batters in his first AA start for Arkansas.  The story is here: h...


Favorite up-and-coming reliever

I'm interested in who you all think are future bullpen studs --here are some young guys in the majors who I think will become go-to guys (who aren't already closers like Papelbon, etc):Jonathan...


A Friendly Game of Comps

I would like to initiate a game of comps -- I'll list ten prospects and the major leaguer I think each best compares to (in terms of potential/skills/vibe/etc).  Then, the first person to respond...


Will Venable

Is his jump in production for real?Last year, the 7th round Ivy Leaguer (Princeton) hit 216/295/324 in low A ball, but didn't play much baseball before now (mostly hoops).  He's the son of Max...


What is with the Young family?

from the APDETROIT, Mi. -- Chunky semi-slugger Dmitiri Young was suspended indefinitely by the American League on Thursday, a day after throwing a porkchop that hit their half-hearted manager Jim...


Early Sleepers

Rafael Rodriguez, P, Angels20/2 K/BB.  0.53 ERA. 17 innings.Former top prospect, getting it all back together.  That strikeout/walk rate is just sick.Davis Romero, P, Blue Jays15/2 K/BB.  1.69 ERA....


Canada wins

Adam Stern, MVP.Are we going to see a massive anti-baseball backlash?Bonds, Greenies, now this.  Now all we need is more Bud Selig on TV, and it's all over.The whole steroids thing is just going to...


Three Most Overrated Bands Ever

Mine are always The Eagles The Sex Pistols and a third, which rotates.  But I'll say: 3) Beastie BoysAll kind of similar: I think of 'lifestyle' when I think of all three: California druggie,...


This year's Brandon Wood/Francisco Liriano

As much as we all like sleepers, even funner is to discuss who we have marked as potential breakout guys -- players who could jump from B level to A level prospects, or from a top 200 prospect to a...
