    Seems like a deeper system, but not too many great players.
    I realize Clarkin has been injured but I don't get ranking him behind Holder. Neither have really put up stellar numbers thus far so if you are ranking on their projections, a "#3 starter" (which is how Sickels describes Clarkin) should be more valuable than a slick fielding infielder who can't hit a lick.

    I think it's because Holder is already a slick-fielding infielder who can't hit. His defense is major-league ready, he's a usable piece right now in some capacity, even if he wouldn't be more than a utility IF at this point. High floor.

    Clarkin, on the other hand, has the ceiling of a SP3, but the floor is that he doesn't even become a usable ML piece.
    On the other hand, you have different fingers.

    Wow. A point of view I have no argument for. I like it.

    Outfielder Aaron Judge, shortstop Jorge Mateo and catcher Gary Sanchez were all ranked among the top 101 prospects in baseball, according to Baseball Prospectus.

    Judge was ranked 18th, Mateo 65th and Sanchez 92nd.

    Aaron can do it all but needs to work on his pitch selection and cover the outside of the plate. They were wise to him last year and pounded him there. Aaron also had an issue with his lower back or hip. I can't remember which. If he can conquer those issues he will be a force to be reckoned with. His power is a fun watch.

    So is Austin the opening day SWB 1st baseman or is Roller still in the system?

    Roller is no longer in the system. It might be Austin, by default.

    Hard to say. They got somewhat aggressive with him last year but he still has a lot to prove. Tremendous arm strength (up to 99-100 in the pen) but still has to prove his arm and his big body can hold up over a full year starting. They began building him up last year but less than half of his appearances in 2015 were starts.

    I know there are exceptions to the big-body guys but I don't think he's athletic enough to be a 200-inning horse unless he drops weight and better conditions himself for the long term. I think he started to do that last year and he pitched well enough at Trenton but he turns 24 in July and is still kind of raw IMO. If he pitches well in the EL all year I'd be very satisfied with that.

    Who are they going to get to replace Byrd? Sign a free agent?

    lol @ the video. Needs more dirt.

    That's kinda what I was expecting. Slow moving if he's kept a starter. If they scrap that plan, I can see him being a very quick riser as a relief arm.

    Absolutely. He already has closing experience and "looks" the part of a late-inning reliever. Even his delivery is reliever-esqe. Rookie Davis, on the other hand, looked the part of a starter. Hopefully Coshow breaks out and takes a step forward in becoming a legit starting pitcher. He's got the tools - cutter/curve/changeup can be decent to average offerings backed up by a heavy 94-96 FB - but will be very interesting to see how he responds to a full season at Trenton.

    I agree. As a starter.

    Well yeah, that's obviously the role I was talking about.

    I wouldn't be happy if Coshow was converted back into a reliever in Trenton next year. He may very well hold his greatest value as a back-of-the-bullpen guy but he should be given the opportunity to start until proven otherwise.

    if so, who is the AAA 1B? In fact, who is the AA 1B? And don't tell me Bichette.

    Would you consider putting Judge at 1B during spring training to see how he could handle the position?

    Just asking.
    Forgive me for taking the Contrarian view

    That would be a real waste considering he is a good OFer. But more importantly, you don't mess with your top prospects, especially one who needs to hurdle some issues at the plate in AAA first. Adding a new position would be a terrible decision, and unnecessary.
