    It's early still but I wonder if Cingrani and Lotzkar could both join Corcino and Sulbaran in the Pensacola rotation by the All-Star Break. That would make for one fun rotation/team to follow- other than Stepenson all four of our top pitching prospects in the same rotation.

    Maybe Hamilton gets the promotion too, making that the only team in the system worth following on a daily basis.
    Go BLUE!!!

    I think Hamiltons key is his obp, his average is secondary to him as he is around 80% on stealing a base. Using saber stats anything above 70% stands a greater chance to produce a run. If he can raise his steal % into the high 80's then he is hitting doubles at a .360 clip. Which equates to almost a 80% everytime he gets on base to score a run. Also I have never delved into the 3rd base stolen % for the runs on how it effects everything.

    Say what you want about Rose as a person, but I don't know anybody who knows the game better than Pete.
    2014 predictions:
