No RX Celexa, I'm very deserving. Only a fool would attempt an MLB mock draft this early without any sources or connections in the game. Even those that do can barely use those connections anyway since it's too far out to hear much buzz about teams being interested in specific players. Yet here I am, actually posting a mock draft in the first week of May just to satisfy my draft craving. How many...

Imagine a herd of bison loosed in a UNESCO world heritage site and you’ll understand the waves of dismay that coursed through parts of the baseball community when photos of a denuded and desecrated Rosenblatt Stadium hit the internet.

Prospect A-Z Day 26: Zack Cox

January 6, 2012
By
A to Z

Prospect A-Z continued its farewell week with Padres outfielder Yoan Alcantara. His career is in flux right now because of an identity fraud scandal that was exposed this offseason. A scout and trainer bribed a contracted investigator working for Major League Baseball to check Alcantara's background, and this allowed him to pass and receive his signing bonus. At his age with his performance in the AZL, he looked like a really good prospect, but...

Prospect A-Z Day 17: Kevin Quackenbush

Yesterday's Prospect A-Z featured Nationals starter Matt Purke. Purke was expected to be one of the top picks in the 2011 draft, but a shoulder injury in his sophomore year at TCU greatly diminished his stuff and his draft stock. His usual 91-94 MPH fastball and sharp slider became 81-84 MPH and flat. Statistically, he was still very good, but the talent he displayed all throughout high school and in his freshman season at...

Prospect A-Z Day 16: Matt Purke

A to Z

Outfielder Oscar Taveras was the subject of yesterday's Prospect A-Z. His breakout season helps strengthening a Cardinals farm system that's starting to look much stronger compared to recent seasons. That being said, everyone saw a number of homegrown players chip in contributions to their World Series run, and sometimes it's hard to argue with results. With Albert Pujols signing elsewhere, St. Louis will need to look to its farm system to fill the void,...

Prospect A-Z Day 11: Casey Kelly

Will it be three shortstops in a row? Jurickson Profar of Texas was the subject of yesterday's Prospect A-Z. The Rangers already have a very good shortstop in Elvis Andrus, but it's not a deep position around the league, so there's nothing wrong with having a top prospect at the same position. Profar could develop into a better hitter while still providing quality defense, albeit not as well as Andrus. That's still years away...

Prospect A-Z Day 8: Bryan Harper

A to Z

Yesterday, we reviewed Grant Green, the A's prospect and former first rounder converting from shortstop to centerfield. After a great pro debut in 2010, Green's offensive suffered from a pretty substantial decline with AA Midland in 2011. He should be able to handle center and at least be an okay defensive player, and if his power comes back, he could be a quality regular for the A's who are in desperate need of offense...

Prospect A-Z Day 2: Trevor Bauer

A to Z

Yesterday, we reviewed one of the Rockies' top prospects, third baseman Nolan Arenado. He's been a solid, above average hitter throughout his minor league career so far, and his defense on the hot corner is improving. In an ideal world for the Rockies, he develops into a middle of the order slugger to complement Troy Tulowitzki and Carlos Gonzalez. While that's probably a couple years away, today's player could reach the majors sooner than...

Now Pitching For The Philadelphia Phillies…

Joe Savery

Joe Savery. I had this posted at Philly Sports Central last week, but I thought this audience would like to see it too. Savery is an intriguing player and to me, unfortunately only came in 7th place on our relief pitcher of the year ballot last week. May 23rd, 2011. This was a great day for the Phillies. Chase Utley made his return to the lineup after missing nearly two months with a knee...

Monkey Boy

My wife texted me at work today to ask if I had heard about what happened to The World Famous Monkey Boy during his appearance at the Nashua Silver Knights game last Saturday. I hadn't, so she filled me in: turns out, while I was up in Manchester with Chris and Billy, enjoying a doubleheader that featured Chad Jenkins and Henderson Alvarez on the hill for the Fisher Cats (we left the second game...
