I don't know 11 of them. Either never heard of them, or can't tell you thing one about them. Not even what position they play. I have never been close to that ignorant about our "top" prospects in my life. Well, since the internet. Most were fodder acquired in our salary dumps. None appear to have big league careers ahead of them. Somebody has to fill out the minor leagues.

That's not particularly depressing to me. Bullpen arms and .260 hitters are a dime a dozen in the free agent market. If some of them come from your system, fine. But it's the real impact dudes that count. Grayrod and Adley. Mountcastle. Those guys move the pile. Minor league depth is a myth.

Not only that, half our prospects are 23-24. They are not developing much more, physically or skill-wise. I was always a glass half full guy about aging prospects. Maybe the light will go on for them. No, it statistically really won't.

Among other things, Democratic governors would also stand in the way in states like Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.

Still deep in pitchers though. Depth you can fantasize about.

Hillary's Vast Right-Wing Cons...
Losing this year didn't help those 20-somethings.I think cancelling the minors was totally stupid. They could have played some just as the Majors did.

But if you want college-seasoned prospects, 23-24 isn't terrible provided they move quickly. You won't see Rutschman till...you know.

We still haven't signed those 16-17 year-old "feenom's" from Dominican who make it up here at the age of 20.I guess O's haven't dug their talons in deep enough down there as of yet.I wish Cuba w/open up. Can you imagine the talent coming out of that place? Getting into that market w/b the only positive thing resulting from a Biden regime which w/certainly make diplomatic overtures to the Communists.

I just learned that my father, a hardcore Republican, is now voting Democrat. He never would have done that when he was alive.

Angelos was BFF with Castro. Maybe we have an in. That would certainly be different. Isn't U-Snail Cuban? I forget stuff.

Roch this morning dredged up Isaac Mattson. Gotten for Bundy. Not on the top 30 list, but his numbers might actually warrant it. With guys like him and Sedlock, there's probably a decent bullpen mulling around down there.
