I've just inherited this lot......

Postby rotterdam_82 » Sun Sep 11, 2005 10:30 am

As of next season, I'll be taking over a dynasty team with some extremely knowledgable owners. My major league roster is kinda light, so I'm wondering what gems I have in my minor system (beyond the obvious) that I sould be looking out for.......

Jeff Baker
Will Bergolla
Ried Brignac
Billy Butler
Robinson Cano
Todd Coffey
Jason Dubois
Mike Ferris
JJ Hardy
Blake Hawksworth
Chris Lambert
Richard Lewis
Chris Lubanski
Brian McCann
Kendry Morales
Dioner Navarro
Brad Nelson
Bill Petric
Felix Pie
Alay Soler
BJ Szymanski
John Van Benschoten
Adam Wainwright
Rickie Weeks
Steven White
Delmon Young

A fairly extensive list to ponder. I've highlighted in bold those that I already expect to have an impact within the next two years, but am I missing any diamonds in the rough?

I really like Kendry Morales. The only problem is the Angels already have a deep roster and a deep minor league system. But, they gave him some good money so I would anticipate a starting spot somewhere for him in the next season...he looks like he can hit.

I don't know about some of these guys, but who I do know:

Jeff Baker - will be blocked by Stewart so may have to move to a corner OF, or 1B when Helton leaves, but has value as long as he's in Coors.
Will Bergolla
Ried Brignac
Billy Butler - I like this guy, dude can flat out rake. The best prospect you have other than that Delmon fella.
Robinson Cano - if he wasn't in NY he'd be slightly above average.
Todd Coffey
Jason Dubois - could surprise if given regular PT, albeit old for a prospect.
Mike Ferris
JJ Hardy - Won't provide much with the bat
Blake Hawksworth
Chris Lambert - BC product should develop into a decent #3
Richard Lewis
Chris Lubanski - He finished the season on fire, if you're forced to have 2 Royals, you have the 2 right ones
Brian McCann - Better C prospect than Estrada who blocks him
Kendry Morales - As with all international prospects, hard to gauge, but he had some good numbers in his first season
Dioner Navarro - another overrated former Yankee
Brad Nelson
Bill Petric
Felix Pie - it's a good thing he injured his ankle because he's not ready, but he will be in a couple years. Keep him.
Alay Soler
BJ Szymanski
John Van Benschoten - isn't he coming off Tommy John? Was rated better than Duke by some headed into 2004, so keep an eye on him.
Adam Wainwright - I think Lambert will eventually pass him, but he could be decent.
Rickie Weeks - My honest opinion is he's overrated...I see a .260 hitter with good speed and occasional pop. I would try to trade him for someone like Liriano.
Steven White
Delmon Young - makes this team worth it.

In 5/6 years, that Young/Butler/Pie/Morales outfield could be the best in your league. Pretty thin on pitching though. Not bad overall.

Bulter and Pie are very good. The above comments pretty much nail it. Try to get some pitching if you can.

I actually disagree on Hardy, I think his hitting will continue to improve, and that he may actually build on his strong 2nd half, with a good overall season next year.

You do seem low on pitching prospects, but that's okay, its a lot easier to find decent starters than it is to find hitters...

I'd say that Butler, Pie, and Morales are probably the best of the players you didn't bold...

Everyone has pretty much nailed this: Morales, Butler, and Pie and very good prospects for the future.

I would like to say though that don't agree with bigken on Weeks being overrated. The kid will be at least a 20/20 guy that hits in the 2/3 spot while at 2B, that's hard to find anywhere. Don't let his AVG. fool you right now as he has patience and is playing threw an injured hand right now.

Agreed. If Weeks is overrated it's only because he's considered one of the top prospects in baseball along with Delmon. He has shown he can hit for average in the past and will probably be one of the most valuable 2B's for years to come.
