  1. mmmmmmhhhhmmmmmm! Bo Bichette!

    • I was wondering how long it would take for your reply Miles. Haha. Gotta love our boy Bo

      • I have to say. I love what you are doing here. Have you thought about doing something with Double A or Triple A? If I focus too much on scouting guys that you cover, I might miss out on those post hype sleepers at the higher minor league levels. I know that prospects at that level (Moncada and Rosario) are on the forefront of peoples minds, but players like (Oswaldo Arcia and Jorge Soler) seem to have been forgotten.

        Anyway, I am sure what you do now is no small task. I just wanted to point out how fascinating it is to scan AA and AAA leaderboards and see those guys who were once hot commodities.

      • We’ve actually been looking into it Miles. One thing we determined several years ago was that AA and AAA contain prospects, in regards to UTR, fall into three categories: those who surpass our age (25 yo) requirement, are already top level kids or both. I do, however, agree with you that there is this “invisible” area of coverage. The current WordPress format we use does not allow plug-ins that would allow us to post a table instead of the player listing that you see. If we upgraded to a/the table format, I could add levels to my coverage and it would take me half the time. Your idea/concern is valid Miles and I GREATLY appreciate you following us and especially your willingness and openness to comment. Every time I see Bichette making the list before I post, I anticipate your commenting.
        You’re right. Being only a two-man show, researching and posting each day is no small task. But we love what we do and don’t plan on stopping ANY time soon. Our fan base is growing slowly and we like that.

        Thanks Miles. You’re great
