Best sources for scouting minor league prospects?

Postby Bwanna » Fri Oct 05, 2007 12:06 pm

What are some of the best sources for scouting minor league prospects?

I'm playing in a keeper league with a minor league roster for the first time since 1993 ('84-'93). All those years ago I used to use Baseball America. Is that still one of the best sources?

Help me out!

BA and BP are the best but when looking at minor leaguers you can't use enough resources so its wise to find as much info as you can from all kinds of sources.

I pay a ton of attention to minor leaguers and the best site I've found is http://www.minorleagueball.com. There is a pretty good forum with a lot of knowledgeable posters. At the plate was another favorite of mine with daily updates but it was stagnant most of 2007.

Pay sites are ok but I didn't see a lot of value in BA except for their rankings.
