  1. Good stuff!

  2. Do you see Gilmartin as a 5 in the majors? Maybe a 4?

  3. Two things:

    1. I’m surprised to hear that Terdo doesn’t have much of a load.
    2. Wirfin Obispo is an awesome name.

  4. Not a big difference between 4 and 5 for me, but at the moment, I see more of a 5. I’m not convinced he gets the weak contact at the MLB level that he’s been getting at the minor-league level, especially given that the Bats had 0 guys in their lineup that would be on an MLB team because of their bat.

  5. Definitely a 70 name.

  7. I saw them against the Durham Bulls recently, and my friend and I thought it was interesting how “Quadruple A” Gwinnett looked compared to the Bulls. Last year, we saw Teheran against Cobb (?) I think and Gwinnett had a way more kids. Mind you, Teheran pitched terribly. Speaking to Triple A in general, I think I’ve seen almost every Rays pitcher come through for at least two starts at the Triple A level (even Matt Moore and Hellboy) before going up, something that I think is unique to the Rays, right?

  8. “a delivery that looks like he’s been momentarily electrocuted.”

    That’s an excellent (and pretty accurate description). He’s too old to be considered a prospect, but I expect that walk rate will come down – it’s been over double at AAA what it was in AA and Japan – and when that happens he could be a useful bullpen arm.

  9. I’m not sure if it’s unique in that they put their pitchers through AAA. The uniqueness comes from their success and their patience, as many of their pitchers make a very conservative and gradual move toward the majors. They spend a whole year there as opposed to the two months that other teams sometime put theirs through.
