Anyone ever have a dream about a nonexistent prospect?

Postby Neato Torpedo » Tue Jun 24, 2008 9:44 am

About 30 minutes ago, I woke up from a dream where I was carefully reading every word of a brief report that went almost exactly like this:

Evan Longoria is widely considered to be the top prospect in baseball, but the Indians are getting a weird glow from 3B Johan Ryan. This AA bat has quietly become the best hitter scouts have ever seen. According to his skipper, he should be in every fan's mind soon enough. The Florida Marlins will be doing everything in their power to get him.


When I woke up, I rushed to see if this guy existed and how well he was doing, because I was convinced that some higher power had given me baseball ESP (see, I predicted Verlander's struggles as well as Quentin's breakout campaign). To my dismay, Johan Ryan does not exist, nor do the Indians have a top 3B in the making. It was a disappointment because I thought it would turn out to be real. The report even came with a photo of a nonexistent player that doesn't look like anyone I've ever seen!
