Minor League Roster Rankings.

Postby BigLebowski » Mon Mar 17, 2008 10:38 pm

This is a 16 team league with 10 minors on each roster. The league is a few years old so there are some "minor" league players already on active rosters.

This is an in depth post so I understand if you get bored and skip it. But which teams do you think have the best minor league rosters "post draft this year"? I'm not asking for rankings..unless you are bored out of your mind, just the top couple of bottom couple. Anything that stands out in your opinion. Thanks a bunch.

Well Team 2 and 13 both have some nice guys with depth. So if someone was rebuilding those teams would be ideal.

Team 2
Brandon Wood
Andy LaRoche
Jason Heyward
Jed Lowrie
Austin Jackson
Michael Main
Taylor Teagarden

Team 13
Nick Adenhart
Jose Tabata
Angel Villalona
Josh Vitters
Chris Tillman
Trevor Cahill
Ryan Kalish
M.Bowden

However if your a top team already, some teams with elite guys would be pretty ideal. Team 5 for example with Bruce/Price, then even some nice prospects like Conger, Guerra, & Nelson. Also Team 16 with Homer/Porcello, then Clement, Jennings, Gomez, and Stewart. Team 4 to a lesser extent w/ Rasmus/Weiters, just not to much depth after that. Anyways those are probably the ones I liked the most. It's probably what I would do depending on my team, try and get solid depth with upside or some elite guys w/ some solid prospects to support them. Its not to take away from the other teams, though Team 1 is fairly sad, as others could potentially have nice lists in a year or so.

ha ha holy shoot I just noticed this looking for a different old thread...
mine is team 13, but I traded many of those guys away over the past 8 months.

Cahill for Bonderman :-/
Vitters for Salty - still time
Villalona/Bowden for Wieters :-B
Tillman in a deal that netted me Cain and D. Wright ;-D
Tabata for Oscar Tejada and a 2d rd pick

Now it sits at Wieters, Adenhart, Tejada, Kalish, Alamazar, and Rodriguez.
Gonna cut J-Rod and make room for more Sox guys. :-b

I may be a tad biased but team 15 ain't bad either. I seem to be the only person in the world who thinks anything of Coghlan and Noonan. Oh well. I am dropping a few guys off the roster this year to refill at draft time. I screwed the pooch last year on Evarts. I was between him and other guy whom I'm sure will go much higher this year and I'll probably miss out on him since I dont' have a 1st or 3rd round pick.

You expoited our trading minor's rules and I applaud you for it. I've tried to do the same thing but to a lesser extent and once you started doing it other owners got a little leary of trading. Kudo's to you. Since nobody else seems to be interested in establishing rules to counteract what we tried to do, I will be taking advantage of it next year as well. ;-D

Thanks, you still have to draft well to make it happen and I definitely hit with Tillman and Cahill. I'd be lying out my arse if I said I knew they'd both become top 10 pitching prospects. I also have no 1st or 3rd, but I know there will be enough questionable picks ahead of me that someone I never dreamed of falling will land in my lap, and the cycle will begin again. :-D

Still, I've never made the playoffs in this league !+)

From an unbiased view I like team #8 with #6 and #15 close behind.
