I think I've come to the conclusion his problem is more with me than with CJ.


Ha...that's unbelievable! Can anyone say "get a life"? I hope he doesn't live in the phoenix area! Shocked

It looks like foulpole was banned, but I never saw anything like OTH regarding his banning. When exactly happened, and was there an explanation somewhere that I missed?

Also, sorry to hijack the thread. Back to the topic at hand, people! Laughing

I'm not sure what shoewizard said but about foulpole there was plenty of interaction between him, us moderators, and the people who had issues with him via PMs and in threads.

I didn't spend much time in the Mitchell report thread so I missed that part as well. I only think the Admin should've linked this

Back to prospect talk...

http://www.baseballamerica.com/today/askba/265412.html

Quote:

Now that several of the Diamondbacks' best prospects have been traded, what would their Top 10 list look like now?

Bob Berzin
Gurnee, Ill.

To get Dan Haren from the Athletics, the Diamondbacks parted with five of their top prospects: outfielder Carlos Gonzalez (No. 1 on our list), lefthander Brett Anderson (No. 3), outfielder Aaron Cunningham (No. 7), first baseman Chris Carter (No. 8 ) and lefty Greg Smith (No. 13). Factor in all the talent Arizona promoted to the majors last season, and 13 of its top 15 prospects from a year ago either no longer qualify for the list or have left the organization.

A year ago, we rated the Diamondbacks system as the third-best in the game. With all the changes, it will sit somewhere around No. 20 when we release our updated rankings in the spring.

Here's what the Top 10 would look like now:

1. Jarrod Parker, rhp
Had the most electric arm in the 2007 draft.
2. Max Scherzer, rhp
Has a violent delivery, but also throws in the mid-90s.
3. Gerardo Parra, of
Won the low Class A Midwest League batting title with a .320 average.
4. Billy Buckner, rhp
Acquired from the Royals in shrewd trade for Alberto Callaspo.
5. Juan Gutierrez, rhp
Sinker/changeup pitcher was part of the Jose Valverde deal with the Astros.
6. Emilio Bonifacio, 2b/ss
Stands out for his speed, middle-infield defense.
7. Reynaldo Navarro, ss
Third-round pick last June is a slick defender.
8. Barry Enright, rhp
One of the top command pitchers in college last spring.
9. Wes Roemer, rhp
See Enright.
10. Brooks Brown, rhp
Has the body, stuff to be a workhorse starter.

I like that 4 out of the top 5 are pitchers. Our positional wave has been promoted or traded, and now the next wave of pitchers should be coming up over the next two years. I like the sequencing. Positional players getting experience, refining their games; and then young, live arms coming up.

Scout.com: Deric McKamey Q&A on Diamondbacks Prospects

http://diamondbacks.scout.com/2/718812.html

Quote:
Minor League Expert Deric McKamey answers reader questions on Diamondbacks Prospects, including fireballers Jarrod Parker and Max Scherzer, infielders Mark Hallberg and Taylor Harbin, the injured Esmerling Vazquez, and more


Including this:

Quote:
How much did Esmerling Vasquez' labrum injury cause him to fall on the charts? Where would you have put him had he stayed healthy?

The torn labrum and subsequent surgery dropped him significantly, as he would have been ranked #4 after the deals were done. Fortunately, it was injured on a freak play rather than being a result of throwing, but a torn labrum is a torn labrum, no matter how you look at it. Vasquez’ 88-95 MPH fastball was very solid, with his whip-like arm action providing excellent movement. He changes speeds well and projects from a body/arm standpoint, so I’ll be very interested to see how he recovers from surgery.


I didn't realize Vasquez had surgery already.

well, I'm almost kind of glad he went ahead and had the surgery. This type of injury never heal properly from rest, rehab, strengthening exercises....etc.

But boy...between Vasquez and Slaten, alot of surgical surprises lately. Next thing you know we'll be reading about Eric Byrnes being neutered.

I wonder if that would affect EB"s ability to do flips? I digress. I like the fact that Sherzer and Parker would likely rank in the top 10 for fastball speed and movement. Our present pitching and the prospects look good.

hallberg? i thought the dbacks had signed mark wahlberg. what the hell?

anyhow, check out hallberg's bb/k ratio. me likey. he's taller than harbin, has more projectability, and being a ss at that level probably means he might be able to play 2b in the majors. i think he might turn out to be someone good.
