    ^^^i dont think any package has that potential...maybe drabek and darnoud...but then again who cares since we got halladay and his cy young arm...his signings are his weak point imo so far...except for the lee trade (which could turn around this year if the guys step up) all his deals have been favorable

    Harry, I grew up with the phillies and learned the game by your voice. You will always be missed but never forgotten. Though you are no longer with us, you'll never be "outta here" in our hearts!

But then I look around at the other farm systems and I realize that the Royals, Rays, and Braves are very good. That's one tier. The Jays and Yankees are respectably good thanks to ridiculous catching depth more than anything else. That's tier two which is waaay below tier one. Then there's a steeper drop to the Reds through the Angels, another steep drop to the Cubs-Tigers, and then a bottomless drop to five truly horrific farm systems.

    It's not a good time in baseball prospectdom.
    As it should be expected after having 3-4 years of tremendous talent coming through the systems. Bound to be a dry spell eventually

    This year's draft is expected to remedy that. Players who would be supplemental 1st rounders are expected to be found in the late 2nd and into the 3rd round this year. Good timing too with uncertainty on whether or not teams can go overslot after 2011.

    I forgot to post this a few days back, but apparently the Altherr to 3b idea didn't stick. He's working out with outfielders again.

    Minor league rosters are announced. A couple of the interesting ones include Savery trying out the stick in Clearwater and Domingo Santana getting a repeat shot at Lakewood.

    Clearwater's OF of James, Singleton, Castro, D'arby Myers, and Brian Gump is pretty damn talented.

    Hey Ateam, I saw you say something about Belt being a non prospect earlier. What are your thoughts on him

    non-prospect is probably the wrong phrase, I don't have time to elaborate but he seems fairly solid.
