I predicted Buchholz would finish at AA and OPS .950 at the two levels.
Horst would emerge as the top LHP in the minors
Valaika would put in a solid year and get a September call.
Dorn would hit over 20 home runs.
I was totally surprised by:
Rojas...I did not think he would ever hit.
Klinker (did not see him as a starter prospect), Del Rosario (did not see solid ground ball tendency, good middle relief prospect), and Ondrusek (I saw him as filler)
Sappelt and Oliveras (did not see them as serious outfield prospects)
I would for sure attribute much of Valaika's lack of success due to injury.
