    Bonus Angels prospects: Nos. 21-25

    It’s time to move on to the Angels. Truth be told, Los Angeles doesn’t have a particularly strong farm system, with 2014 first-round pick Sean Newcomb the only member of the Top 100. Only three in its Top 20 get an overall grade of 50 or better. That being said, they have gotten key contributions […] More»

    Bonus Royals prospects: Nos. 21-25

    It’s time to continue my march through the bonus prospects on each of my lists. Next up: the Kansas City Royals. Not long ago, the Royals had the label of “best farm system” bestowed upon them, with a slew of pitching (mostly left-handed) prospects.

    Bonus Rockies prospects: Nos. 21-25

    On Friday, I began the look at my extra prospects, posting my Reds No. 21-25 list. Now it’s time to move on to the Colorado Rockies. The Rockies system is a pretty good one, with three players in the Top 50 and five in the Top 100 . But even beyond that, it’s a pretty […] More»

    Bonus Reds prospects: Nos. 21-25

    They say that imitation is the greatest form of flattery. I hope it’s true because I’m about to rip Jim Callis off. Over the past couple of weeks, Jim has been unveiling his extra prospects, Nos. 21-25, for the 10 teams that were his responsibility on the Team Top 20 lists on Prospect Watch. If […] More»

    Area Code Games by the numbers

    My look at the Top 10 performers at the Area Code Games ran recently, and I’m sure all of you devoured the look at the Area Code Games through the eyes of Trackman. Now I thought we could have some fun looking at the stats. As I’ve mentioned before, statistics at these events need to […] More»

    Area Code Games through the eyes of Trackman

    Trackman does some cool stuff. And they were at Area Code Games, the high school showcase event held in Long Beach, for the entire event, providing info on things from as mundane as fastball velocity to more “out there” info like fastball spin and breaking ball spin. Here were the leaders, according to  Trackman, across […] More»

This weekend is the Perfect […] More»
