Is Evan Longoria the No. 1 Prospect?

Postby shortsavage » Tue Aug 15, 2006 8:01 pm

Evan Longoria, 20, put up an OPS of 1366 in 33 A- at bats. He then went on to post a 1020 OPS in 110 A+ at bats. And now (8/14) he has a 1143 OPS in 37 AA at bats.

With this amazing tear - I think he had his one bad weekend when he came to play UC Davis back in April - and a good chance that the Long Beach State grad has a future at second base, has Evan Longoria become baseball's No. 1 prospect?

Hes been great, no doubt, but its still a very limited amount of at bats to elevate him to the #1 overall prospect. He definetely has climbed up my rankings but there are still a bunch of guys Id rank above Longoria at this point

You really think even Jose Tabata is a better prospect than Longoria right now?

I'll take Jay Bruce and Justin Upton, but I don't think I'm in the minority if I call saying that Tabata is a better prospect than Longoria a little crazy - and I own Tabata, not Longoria, in my dynasty league.

Hehe, it's a hard knock life, and you don't pass my credibility test if you're going to stick to your guns on that.

Longoria would rank around 10-12 on my list, at least for now. If he continues this ridiculous pace, he'll probably continue to climb into the top 7.

Three Words: SMALL SAMPLE SIZE

Longoria has certainly been impressive the last two months, but he is still far from being the #1 overall prospect in the game. Let's revisit this a year from now once he has played a good chunk of time above A ball and pitchers have had a chance to adjust to him.

And I dont think Im in the minority saying that calling Longoria the #1 prospect is a little crazy. Everyone has their own opionions when it comes to prospects, they are by no means a sure thing and everyones different opinions is what makes it interesting

I might not rank Tabata over Longoria after Tabatas injury and Longorias continued hot play, but the last time I updated my prospect list Tabata was in front of Longoria

I was dissapointed that I missed Jose Reyes 3 HR game, but damn now I might not pass shortsavages credibility test, is there even a reason to get up tommorrow morning? ;-7
