Never seen top-2000 list before. Like his Montero ranking.

Thanks.

Remember that Wittels kid that had a 56 game hitting streak last season, 2 games shy of Ventura's mark. Well he had to wait 7 months to resume it but it ended today in season opener. Serves him right.

The **** allegations has probably created a significant distraction and the pressure by many to not even allow him to play due to those allegations. Now that the streak is over it will be interesting to see if FIU will actually suspend him since they pretty much don't have any more national interest about him from the baseball side.

Woot, can't wait for the season to start.


Brett Lawrie's going to be starting in AAA Las Vegas. Really excited to see what the Jays' pitching crop from the 2010 draft can do.

Sanchez, Asher W. (can't spell his name lol), Syndergard and Murphy.

Also hoping for some progression from Hech now that he should be more confortable.

As a secondary Jays fan, Lawrie is a hell of a grab for the rebuild.

He'll be a pivotal piece for the future.

What do you expect his AAA numbers to be?

Not sure what his numbers may look like but if he is doing well (which he should) I heard the Jays move Rivera in July, move Bautista back to right field, and call up Lawrie to play third.

I doubt they'll suspend him now, it'll look silly. Depends how the whole case pans out I guess. If he's involved he'll cop it.


If I remember correctly you are UCLA right? Good start for them so far, 2 very good perfomance by Cole and Bauer. The more I see Bauer the more I see shades of Tim Lincecum.

I think/hope he posts good numbers.

The PCL is a hitters league and the Jays' AAA team, the Las Vegas 51s stadium is a hitters park. So hoping for a nice showing.

What do you think his splits will be?

Would you think a .300 BA, a .340-.350 OBP and a .450-.460 SLG is too much or no?

I don't think he'll hit .300 seeing as he's never done it before, although that would certainly be welcome. But then again, Arencibia did hit .301 last year



I'd probably expect something like a .820 + OPS, with a good number of doubles and triples thrown in there and an increased number of HRs. Not sure what others think about that.

When do you guys think Iglesias will be ready? I've read that his defense is there but he needs to improve his hitting quite a bit.

A-Rod had some positive things to say about him:

Quote:
"That kid is gonna be sensational," Rodriguez said. "I was so impressed with him. He works hard and he's such a good kid.

"His hands ... great hands. Really, really stood out for me. He's gonna be a good one. The Red Sox fans should be very excited to see this kid in the future."

Yeah the bat has ways to go still, he doesnt walk much. With Scutaro and Lowrie there probably 2012 unless Sox suffer injuries. If I had to guess I would say he gets a cup off coffie in September when rosters expand and becomes a permanent fixture in 2012. His D is ready to go now.

Scutaro/Sox have a mutual option for 2012.

Yeah, considering how weak his bat is. His OPS was .687 last year. O.O

He has very good speed though and is apparently good defensively. But still...

I think Hicks is where he should be.

He could be a superstar, but he needs to show more.

Hopefully he breaks out this season.

Any top prospects making their major league teams?

Hellickson, Chapman and Brown (although injured?) is all I can think of. Montero fighting for a spot on the bench irrc. Pineda fighting for a spot in the rotation. Freeman starting for the Braves.

Harper is going to Low-A. Probably going to wreck it.

Lawrie is going to AAA. Las Vegas and PCL are hitter favorable. Hopefully he puts up good stats and maybe gets June callup.

Ackley's going to get called up later I believe.

Trout, Myers, Hosmer, Belt all heading back to the minors.

Excited to see how Jameson Taillon does in the minors.

Same with the big 4 Jays draftee pitchers. Giggity for Aaron Sanchez.

Matt Moore is going to be a top 5 or 10 prospect if he can post those silly numbers in a higher level.

Trevor Bauer (UCLA) just pitched another gem tonight. 1 hit/2 walk masterpiece, had a perfect game going into 6th. His stock is really rising. Potential top-10 pick maybe.

Can Gerrit Cole challenge Anthony Rendon for the first pick overall?




Brandon Belt made the team and went 1-3 with a walk.

Absolutely. Rendon-Cole is a 1-2 now with Purke having a average(ish) season. Purke's battled blister problems and inconsistency so far this season. Wouldnt be surprised to see Cole go 1st overall, he's had heck of a season but that UCLA squad couldnt hit water if they fell out of the boat. Rendon's mainly played DH this season as he's recoveering from off season surgery but that's not a longterm issue. As good as Alvarez-Rendon could be for Pirates they would be extremely tempted with Taillon-Cole duo. Cole is close to major league ready.

This should make it interesting. No clear-cut favorite for number 1.

Looking forward to see what the Jays do for this supposedly deep draft.

Is it deeper in hitting then last year?


Aaron Crow made the Royals bullpen. Thought he was having troubles with his development mmmm. 5 strikeouts to 1 walk in 3 innings pitched and picked up his first win today.

Drabek pitched a fantastic game to pick up his first as well.

No not in hitting. This draft is loaded with pitching. Some of pitchers predicted to go last 1st/supp round could've gone mid-1st last season. There are 3 really good and high upside college hitters (Rendon, Springer and Jackie Bradley) and 2 potentially very good high school hitters (Bubba Starling and Francisco Lindor). 18/32 1st round pick last year were hitters, if I had to guess I'd say 12-14 this year. Tons of high school pitchers with great potential (Daniel Morris, Archie Bradley, Henry Owens, Dillon Howard, Dillon Maples, Dylan Bundy).

Jason Esposito (3B) out of Vandy makes too much sense for Jays. Compares to Ryan Zimmerman. 20-HR pop with potential Gold Glove defense. AA has targeted pitching last season so it'll be interesting to see if he goes that way again. Either way it's a good draft to have bunch of picks in and that's something Jays and Rays have. Rays have 12 picks in first 2 rounds - thats a record.

Hmmm, being stacked in good pitching prospects is never a bad thing I suppose, seeing as not all of them will turn out to be good. But if a good position player falls to them, the Jays will probably take them.

And with the hard slotting thingy I've been reading a bit about, this is a good year to go after high school prospects right? Seeing as it would possibly be the last year to get paid overslot?

Or am I completely lost?


And the Red Sox also have a good number of picks. Should be another good draft for the AL East.
