  1. You should do a story on the Royals and there prospects from 2007-2008 drafts. Ladnier and his staff produced !!! Duffy. Moustukas, Hosmer, Lough, Giovatella, Mitchell, Montgomery, Lamb, Paukovits, Sample, Robinson, Robinson, Hardy.

  2. Thanks for braking this all down Bryan, that team looks outstanding, as it should. Any insight on how well Trout plays CF? I see no reason so far not to rank him either 1 or 2, quite a coup for the Angles.

    D. Brown seems like a monster. Some really interesting players coming through the NL East.

  3. Last year when I was in HS we played Mike Trout and his Millville squad.

    And we got 10 runned.

    But went deeper in the state playoffs if that means anything.

  4. I’ve noted this extensively in other forums, so I’ll note it here: Mike Trout is a fantastic prospect, but people are getting slightly carried away if they think he’s surpassed Brown. Even if you don’t trust the batted ball data enough to try and normalize his BABIP completely, its still clear that a .422 BABIP is unsustainable. Trout’s showing power potential, but its still very much “potential” and both Wil Myers and Nick Franklin have showed more actual power then Trout (although Trout is slightly younger than both). Basically, as was the case with Brown at the same levels, we need to see if Trout can actually develop his power before we start considering him a true #1 prospect. The potential is clearly there, but people are getting carried away by the surface stats.

  6. I kind of hate to ask, but how would you rate the four SS – Cumberland, Espnosa, Gordon, Green – as fantasy prospects?

  7. Depends on what your league’s scoring system is.

  8. And how big of a loser you are compared to the rest of the guys in your league

  9. It’s a points system but it ends up working a lot like 5X5.

  10. Myers has the potential to play catcher as well, improving his value, though if his bat continues at the current rate they may be forced to move him to the outfield.
