  1. Good review. I generally agree with all the above.

    What do you think of Leonard Davis and Bill Rhinehart? Both guys killed the pitching in the AFL (but then again, who didn’t?), posting OPSs of 1.015 and .990, respectively. Davis is pretty versatile too, playing 3B and some 2B and OF.

    Also, did you consider including Justin Maxwell? He’s been plagued by injuries, but when healthy he’s looked very promising. He’s a real toolsy guy, and he’s put up good numbers this Spring. If the Nats weren’t so stacked in the OF at the moment, I would have expected him to make the team

  2. Maxwell = 25 years old, he has just 43 minor league games above A-ball and he hit .233 at that level in 2008.

    Davis is probably a utility player in the Majors. Rhinehart is the most intriguing, for me, of the three…

  3. Out of curiosity, is Esmailyn Carlos Alvarez Daniel Gonzalez Lugo still going to be in the organization?

  4. What about Zech Zincola and Ian Desmond?

  5. Lugo will remain in the org… they spent a lot of $$ on him. Zincola was overhyped after that first season… command/control is not good. Desmond was also overhyped… He’s probably never going to hit well enough to be a regular.

  6. Quick question about the whole series: Why do you give us the hits a pitcher allowed in their IP? Is that a good predictor of future success, and even if it is, my thought would be the “predictor” aspect of it mostly comes from multicollinearity with K% and possibly GB/FB. Basically I’ve never read anything about this, and my initial thought is it isn’t necessarily a “skill” that translates to MLB performance, so I’m hoping you can give me some insight. Thanks!
