Rate my farm team, or constructive criticism :).

Postby bananaphone » Mon Feb 22, 2010 1:49 pm

This is my farm team, copy pasted from the forum it's in. Disregard the (astros), and the titles at the top. My league has 20 teams, and each team can keep 40 minor league players. 35 on your farm team, and 5 which mirror on your major league roster as "rookie slots". I'm hoping if you have any insight on some of these guys in regards to projections, guys you like, other guys I might want to look at, or sources of info where I can do more research. There are roughly 800 players kept, so the pool is fairly picked over, but I've been able to make good headway in improving this team (believe, it's come a long way....).

Most importantly, if there are any college prospects that I need to know about, let me know. Any college prospect who was already drafted (Morgado and Dyson for instance), are fair game for me to make claims from. I think I'll be able to get some extra 1st and 2nd round draft picks out of the waiver pool if I do some homework. Undrafted college prospects to keep my eyes on would be huge as well.

Also, specifically, I'd like to know if I should expect anything out of Casey Weathers, as well as Eric Hurley. Two guys I'm kind of iffy on right now, but if you got good info. Let me know!

I linked all of my prospects to their stats, if I was able to find any.

Thanks in advance for your help!

Can you punt? Outside of the 2009 drafted pitchers, not much to get excited about. Simon Castro's your closest thing to a top prospect. This year will be a big test for Lyles. His stats tend to be much greater than his scouting reports. Hobgood, Jenkins & Miller have some good upside. Marinsek is your only hitter I'd have any interest in and he's very raw 19 year old. Dominguez & Cody Johnson have a lot of power, but lets see how they do in the upper minors.
