    Me too. I just don't get the infatuation with Trammel. Maybe and hopefully I'm just missing the boat, and he does become the star some seem to think he will be.

    I took Greene. I like the upside more, plus this is a pitching starved organization. I think Greene's value, be that as a player or as a trade piece, is higher.

    well yea, he needs to learn how to throw lefty first before he can pitch lefty.

    General note on upside: it's fictional. Upside tends to be more about how much we can pretend a kid can be. The younger the kid, the farther away from the bigs, the more we can pretend. Invariably, the older/closer the kid gets, the ceiling drops.

    So, in any of these discussions, "upside" largely is a construct of each of our imaginings. For instance, I think Taylor Trammell has more upside than Nick Senzel. IMO, he's got the foundation to be a regular All-Star who has a long career. As he comes into more power in the next few years, he can be truly special. But that's, like, my opinion, man.

    Robert Stephenson should be cut. That's just unconscious knowledge.

    He's the #17 overall prospect in baseball. You're not missing a boat, you're missing a ship.

    Prospect rankings mean very little. The few times I have seen him play, I just was not impressed.

    My worry with Greene is largely health-related. If he's healthy, IMO, he's going to be an All-Star. There is little he hasn't at least flashed as plus. His off-speed stuff was outstanding in spurts, as was his fastball. His control waxed and waned, but at his peak, he's nearly unhittable with true TOR stuff.

    With Trammell, I worry about whether his power and arm will hinder him enough to be a solid contributor rather than a true difference maker. For that reason, Greene gets my nod for #2.

    glad you're not a scout.

    Greene for me has the highest upside and while the elbow is a concern it is not enough to overcome 103.

    Prospect rankings are a collective thought of talent and potential of a player made by people who know a lot more about the game then we do.

    Yet they still mean very little. People let the hype train take over. Not that that is the case with Trammel. In general i take prospect rankings with a grain of salt. Fun to read, but at this stage who knows which way they go. There is always so called top prospects who miss. It is just no where close to an exact science, and was pointed out so intelligently I am not nor claim to be any sort of scout other than a boy scout.
