If you're still looking for Nationals prospects.


Even in the Nationals system, I don't think Shawn Hill is really even a top 5 prospect.

Padres had a very strong 2006 draft; the list will probably look a lot different next season, but for now I'd say the big two are Headley, Carrillo. Blanks is also someone I'd look at; he posted an .836 OPS at A ball and is only 19. Ekstrom gets a lot of love on San Diego forums as well.

2006 draftees Antonelli, Huffman, Freese, Culp, Leblanc, Buschman, and Hunter are all going to be vying in a few years.

Why not? Is it his 5/1 k/bb ratio in the minors or was it his 2.77 era?

Honestly, I think he could be a servicable starter/long relief guy in the near future if he can learn to deal with men on base. He gave up 23 hits in 31 innings with nobody on this year but gave up 23 hits in 19 innings with men on. Clearly, it's a small sample size, but I think he's probably a little underrated in prospect circles.

And I agree that he wouldn't be top 5 in most systems, but I think he contends in Washington. Who are you planning to list above him?

Simply put, 25-year-olds who just spent almost all of their season in AA and don't miss bats all that often aren't top prospect material in my mind.

I'd rather default to someone in the lower levels who could turn into at least an average regular.

As I mentioned above, I like Chris Marrero, Shairon Martis, and Kory Casto more than Shawn Hill.

I like Chase Headley with San Diego.

Mark McCormick and Tyler Greene aren't really up to my prospect stardards for STL.

Still have to look into Washinton's guys.


I also like Romero (he just does well no matter what) and Wells (great arm though has some wildness) in SD.

You might have to go to recent draft picks to find 2 other Cardinal prospects. I know McCormick was wanted by the Mets when they offered Garcia to the St. Louis and were turned down. All Green has to do is prove mora valuable than Eckstein which is do-able imo.

Hinckley is still young though I don't know if he'll ever recover. But I think they're actually deeper than a team like the Giants and Cards right now.

cardinals

rasmus is the clear cut number one. i have three candidates for #2 and #3.

former top prospect blake hawksworth has returned from a multitude of injuries and pitched well.

jaime garcia has emerged as a solid lefty pitching prospect but is still in the low levels.

2006 first rounder adam ottavino has pitched well in his debut.

I'm with you on Ottavino. We looked into Hawksworth and Garcia but ended up picking a more "toolsy" guy as the Cardinals number three.

Our work will be published division by division within the next day or two at Project Prospect. I'm thinking about talking to Madison to see if the Cafe wants to post it, too - since folks around here definitely helped me out.
