Re: John Sickels farm system rankings
Very interesting work Doug. Really shows the value of the prospect in terms of big league roster dollars.
As for Alonso, I have to say I see him strictly as a DH who if he really works at it might make an decent first basemen. I have to assume I'm not the only one who sees him in that kind of light. Rating him a B+ is probably fair with his bat earning him the bulk of that rating. I think to be an A/A+ prospect one has to be a more well rounded player than Alonso is.
Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
Cincinnati Bengals - None
Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98
