Hey guys! Until now I haven't stepped foot into this area. But this year I am playing in a keeper league with some minor leaguers built into the rosters so I'm keen to start discussing prospects and getting the inside edge that the Cafe always presents! Any tips and advice would be fantastic. Keep up the good work and hopefully some good discussion!

A good place tostart learning about prospects is Baseball America., which has tons of great content, however the best stuff you have to pay for. Jon Sickles blog has a lot of great stuff and is frequented by some very knowledgeably people, many of whom run their own blogs.

Here are a couple of other good resources:

Yeah, definitely check out Sickels. That's a really good site.

Also, you might know about it, but http://www.thebaseballcube.com is a great place for stats, college & Minors

Here is a list of other sites top 100's overall, and this is a list of top 10's by team, by various websites. You could probably export it all to Excel and get players average ranking to get a good general idea of how players rank by various sites. And don't forget to post at the cafe when you're on the clock asking whom to take ;-D
