    Prospect Talk #1

    Post by Never Forget '04 on Tue Dec 01, 2009 7:29 pm

    After seeing some articles I have decided to start a small series about prospect around the AHIBA. The first Prospect Talk will center around my club, The Texas Bandits, and its called would you rather. You have to chose one prospect from the list and explain why you chose them.

    First is Doug Cowan. Doug is a speed minded SS with great defense but only decent offensive potential.

    Secondly is Ian Strickland. Ian is a great all-around CF with good defense. He also shows great contact (75), Gap (79), and aviod k's (90).

    Lastly is Pancho Flores. Flores is a decent peripherals and pitches. Although he has 2 pitches, he has a great ground ball percent (69%) and can hit 99 on the radar gun.

    My personal choice is Ian Strickland. He will be an excellent lead-off hitter and almost never k's.

    If I had to pick 1 from the list it would be Pancho Flores. I favor pitching. He has the stamina and ratings to be a starter. The only flaw is he only has two pitches. I'd like to see if he develops a third pitch or he would be great in the bullpen. I would try him out as a starter as we have some very good 2 pitch starters in the league right now.

    Wow. I like all 3 guys! You got two guys that provide solid D up the middle with hitting skills as well; very important. But, if Flores can develop that 3rd pitch he could be a special pitcher. Hard to find TOR starters and Flores has that chance, so by a hair I take Flores.

    Keep the series going.

    Washington Nationals Prospects

    Post by Jeff14131281 on Wed Dec 02, 2009 7:15 pm

    I was looking over the AAA guys down to the rookie league guys. Nobody really stands out as prospects that will take this team towards the .500 direction. The only prospect is probably the first round pick after this season is over and that player is currently playing college ball or high school ball. I probably won't even sign anybody over 30 to contracts and tie up salary cap dollars. Even a guy like Jorge Roman will probably get thrown back into the pool for contenders to bid on that are going for rings. The rebuild probably won't happen overnight. I'm looking forward though to the next bench clearing brawl. My guys are so disgruntled that they are chomping at the bit to go out and fight some guys. They are a little weak with their jab skills. Have a great evening all and good luck with Friday games. This weekend I need to work on my lineup again to try and find nine guys that want to swing the bats. Finding offense with this bunch is a lot of work.

    Jeff-

    Just so you know you can trade your vets for draft picks (in case you didn't know). Draft picks 1-5 are available for the upcoming amateur draft in November. After the all star break you can trade your 1-5 picks for upcoming and following drafts. So if you can get some extra draft picks, it could help you rebuild your minors faster.
