    Might need to start giving Alejandro Chacin a look... 34/7 k/bb in 22 IP in the AZL as a 17/18 year old.

    Erik Miller also bears mentioning... Pretty extreme groundball pitcher from the looks of it. 26/1 k:bb ratio in 31.1 IP @ Billings

    Also... This organization needs a few bats.

    No, Billy Hamilton's football resume doesn't make him a better baseball player. That's not the point. The point is that his football ability reflects his athletic ability. And with Billy Hamilton, athletic ability is the whole ball of wax.
    His hitting ability had to do with his athleticism, not anything to do with him being a quarterback at the University of Texas.

    My point is, particularly with a pitcher, what his athleticism on the football field was, has very little bearing on his ability on the mound.

    I wouldn't look at it that way. The truth is that there's a lot more certainty when it comes to hitters than pitchers in terms of development. A top positional prospect has stats that are far more likely to project and remain consistant going forward, whilst lower-ranked pitching prospects are more likely to have breakout seasons and move up than positional prospects.

    Went with Judy here, btw. The stats have been pretty consistent, he's there, he has a clear role, and he has the stuff to make it. That's more than we can say for most of the guys left.

    Not that I necessarily disagree, but I was just curious if you had any data to back that up.

    It would take some searching, but I'm basing it off a chart in an article or earlier thread I viewed. That said, there's some evidence in that all of our prospects that we ranked 39-50 last season were pitchers, and that was at a time we were strapped for quality pitching prospects.

    It makes sense that we would go on a run of pitchers here. At this point, most hitters who have shown something have already shown up. While a lot of pitchers who could be solid or better bullpen arms are still out there.
