Random Notes

As I slog thru ranking all 30 teams, far deeper than I should, as always, I have had a few thoughts.

Why isn't Bralin Jackson being hyped up more. He is a phenomenal athlete. I get it. He's raw but what the hell?

How likely is it that Courtney Hawkins turns into Delmon Young? It crossed my mind when ranking the Sox. It scares me a little.

Wilfredo Rodriguez for the Rockies intrigues me as a future solid defense, good bat catcher.

Remember the name Alexis Rivera in the Royals system. Huge power potential. Very good athlete for his size. Big breakout potential there.

I like Kyle Ryan for the Tigers more than I should.

It's good to see Drew Cisco throwing well again.

Manuel Margot for the Red Sox is impressive.

The Rangers have too many good middle infield prospects. It's not fair.

No matter how hard the Pirates try, they just can't seem to have any success but they do have a lot of talent. Now if only more of them could make it through boot camp..

Zach Green for the Phillies is interesting.

Jace Peterson is underrated.

I think Christian Walker has untapped power potential if he stays healthy.

I love Nate Karns as a bullpen arm.

Tomas Nido is underrated. I like Christian Montgomery as a 3rd starter type.

Marcell Ozuna has power to burn. One of the best power hitters in the minors.

I have a hard time believing in Nick Franklin.

How the hell is Trevor Bauer an Indian..

Joe Panik is underrated.

Is Joc Pederson better than Zach Lee?

If I were a GM, I'd call about Chris Owings.

I rated Dan Vogelbach above Josh Vitters and Brett Jackson. I believe.

I've been too low on Carson Kelly until now.

Not sure where the Jed Bradley with the 95 MPH heat I saw at GT is.

The Braves have a very good young core. A lot of solid role players going forward.

Roberto Osuna is exciting.

Miles Head has star potential at the plate. I'd put him at 1B and let him rake.

I have a hard time believing in George Springer. I just struggle to think he'll hit.

Yes, Eduar Lopez, is the 10th best under 25 player for the you go spend another 100+ mil on another FA.
