  1. Talk about a missed opportunity. If I can be so bold as to critique your writing, you should have went with:

    The present author assures you, this is not an affectation.

    I know at least one reader who would have gotten a knowing chuckle.

  4. I love doing this! The best part is the self validation you get if the player does well.

  5. Third person for everyone!

  6. The present commenter agrees with both this sentiment and the original author’s reply.

  7. I thought it was going to be players who performed low-budget one-act plays which were unsuitable for a full theatrical run.

  8. Brad Miller seems to be thou’s type.

  9. Yebber. He was among the finalists.

    Garcia and Walters got a little bump for being at Triple-A.


    More likely is I have no idea what I’m doing.

  10. Although this commenter agrees with the above sentiments and therefore wonders if he has reached the point of being unoriginal, this commenter must still confess his love for this upcoming series and the aforementioned comments.

  11. If not knowing what one is doing is the criterion for doing, we could all stay very busy.

  12. Miller made John Sickels’ top 100.

  13. Greg Garcia? I love ‘My Name is Earl’.

  14. If I may be so bold as to critique YOUR writing, you should have gone with “you should have gone with”. Also, in your revision, the comma between “you” and “this” shouldn’t be there.

    I liked the contents of this article, notwithstanding its slightly over-the-top rhetorical style. Good analysis.

  15. I always feel the Corban Joseph’s name is backwards, as if on some application he misread the last-name first, first-name last portion.

  16. Yes, you would learn that if you clicked on Miller’s name in my post, which links to Sickel’s column on Miller.

    Second, Dear Author’s eligibility rules, conveniently located in this very column, require “Absence from any of three noted top-100 prospect lists” none of which are, implausibly and squirrelily, Sickel’s.

  17. It made me think of Korban Dallas in the underrated Fifth Element.

  18. Who know’s? These guys may be a snapped knee away from the bigs.

  19. First one, I concur.

    Second, I disagree, but I’ll take it under advisement.

    See, it’s not so hard…

  20. If I should be so bold as to critique the critique, as it were.
    OG: This is not an affectation, I assure you.
    Remix: The present author assures you, this is not an affectation.

    Extended Mix: This obsession, the present author assures you, is not an affectation.

  21. Marcus Semien? Nobody with a 5:3 BB:K ratio has a future with the White Sox.

    Comment by MikeS — April 17, 2013 @ 2:52 pm

  22. You were right!

  23. Baseball america needs to hire Cistulli
