Need help on minor-league keeper

Postby wkelly91 » Tue Sep 21, 2004 6:07 pm

I need to pick someone up before the season ends for next year. He can't have any MLB experience. Here are the ones taken...

Joe Blanton
Prince Fielder
Delmon Young
Shi-soo Choo
Andy Marte
Jason Nix
Clint Everts
Greg Miller
Angel Guzman
Cole Hamels

Any help would be appreciated, thanks ;-D

That one is easy for me, just say Felix Hernandez ;-D

I shouldn't have to say more about him as I started a thread on him in this very forum. But IMO is the best pitching prospect there is in the minors.

Even if you have to wait a season, I take 3B Ian Stewart.

Felix could be phenomenal. He could be like Rafael Soriano and have arm problems.

I agree. Felix would be my first choice.

While I agree pitchers due tend to be injured more, I think he is very much worth the risk & about the only thing he has in common with Soriano is the same team. Rafael was/is undersized for a power pitcher, has had previous arm problems in the past, and well just isn't nearly as talented as Felix.

Ian Stewart would probably be my next choice though. Curious to see what position he plays as his future pans out. Rockies have quite a few young 3B that could block his way if they have some good seasons. Of course he isn't moving to 1st, so if not 3B a move to the OF could be in his future. Seems like all the big 3B prospects are moved around lately (Pujols/Cabrera).
