The farm system is Marge Schott bad. Our best everyday player prospect is a 25 year old in AA. That's kind of scary.
We've got 4-6 pitchers at AA who are considered prospects. Even so none of their numbers jump out at you save for Mottl. He has a good K/Inn ratio. If you have 4-6 pitching prospects, you may get 1-2 that make it to the major leagues. There's an outside chance that one becomes an avg. major league starter.
We are in bad shape.
As for everyday players. I like Smitherman-he's hit everywhere he's played and he's got a good eye at the plate. He could be an above average hitter. Does anyone know if he can field?
Olmedo's approach at he plate is looks better than I imagined.
Ed E. has gone way backwards -is he hurt?
Schramek needs to have a good 2nd half. I do like the plate discipline and he doubles power. Will it turn into home run power?
Our minor leagues has gotta be in the bottom 5. How could anyone rate it higher?
