  1. The Royals ’08 draft may not only be the best in the team’s history, it has the potential to be one of the best in ANY team’s history.

  2. That Tigers draft is ghastly.

  3. Daniel Hudson could settle in as a #3 starter for the Dbacks? The same one who projects to have a better FIP than David Price?

    this one was decent

  5. I want to go on record with the following: for good or ill, Johnny G is the Dalai-Lama-like reincarnation of David Eckstein. I’ve been saying this since he was drafted.

    He’s going to make the majors, Dayton Moore is going to fall in love with him, and sabermatricans across the land will simply transfer all of their “Eckstein” references to “Giavotella.”

  6. Ugh, the Tigers and their obsession with early round relievers.

  7. For one, Price pitches in the AL East… secondly, it’s still too early to read into ’11 numbers due to sample size.

  8. Holy $#%* check out Shooter Hunt’s BB rate..

    25bb in 15 ininings
    33bb in 17.2 innings
    84bb in 67.1 innings

    2009 is magical with the 10.56 k rate to a 11.23 bb. I’d love to see some video of this kid.

  9. Also Price has outpitched his FIP by half a run during his career 60 starts, which may or may not mean something.

  10. This is only my thoroughly uneducated opinion but I see Daniel Hudson as being better than a #3 starter and Chisenhall seems to be widely regarded as a star in the making.

    Having seen Giovatella in person for a season at AA, I totally agree with the idea that he may be most valuable as a pinch hitter. He appears to be able to hit but his defense is atrocious.

  11. Settling in as a #3 for a team with arguably the worst rotation in baseball (with no clear sign of a prospect that will be better than him) when you *project* to have better numbers than a good team’s ace is a strange description of Hudson’s talent.
