  1. Who is the SP that has the best chance to be successful at the Major League level of the Mariners four prospects (not who is the highest rated):

    Taijuan Walker
    Danny Hultzen
    James Paxton
    Brandon Maurer

  2. Generally lists take into account both ceiling and floor, certainly someone may be more likely to be successful sooner than others, but the ranking will usually reflect the person most likely to be successful as well

  3. First to Seattle – Hultzen
    Longest career – Walker
    Most likely to be confused for Joe Mauer’s cousin – Maurer.

  4. Always enjoy reading your stuff, Mike, but you keep repeating the same mistake.
    Oscar Taveras is an elite prospect in the Cardinals’ system. Tavares sang ‘Heaven Must Be Missing An Angel,’ circa 1976.

  5. Hultzen has the highest floor out of any of the Mariners’ main pitching prospect, so I’d have to say he has the best probability of having success. Walker definitely has the best chance of being an ace-caliber pitcher.

  6. Why not just put JJ Hardy at 3rd? No change in batting value and your young ss gets where he needs to be.

  7. Thank you! I’ve noticed it for months but never commented on it.
