Re: My Top 20 Prospects
Three points: 1. Is anybody worried that Joey Votto's power numbers are way off this year from last? He is not at the moment getting the ratio of extra base hits for times to the plate that one would expect from a top prospect. and 2. I think Adam Rosales is seriously underappreciated. Almost 50% of his hits are for extra bases, he gets an extra base hit one in 8 times to the plate (even better than Brendan Harris's 1 in 9 last year, something that certainly predicted the success he's had this year), and he walks about 1 in 10--thus will pretty consistently get a hundred point pop in his OBP and always a relatively high slugging average--which together equal good OPS. 3. Would be interesting to compare these lists to some from several years ago to see if the system is making progress--or just how it is. My sense is that it is--and that in fact it has under both O'B and Krivsky.
