    But I too like having more talent on the teams, it creates more competition I think. The problem is, and I know how infrequent it is, a guy like Mike Piazza never really gets a shot because there arenít enough minor league spots for him.
    There is never going to be a perfect cut off for that type of stuff though. I guess as long as minor leagues are financially viable, too many isn't such a bad thing, but as a fan of the MLB team, it is much more satisfying to follow teams that have more density of talent.

    I agree with you. I just think about the diamonds in the rough.

    SWR with a great start in AA.

    Wasnt a fan of the Stroman deal when it was made (since we didnt get a top 100) but not as upset now given Woods has gotten there.

    I like Stroman and think hes great but the timelines dont work out now. Hes a FA at year end and this is probably a bridge year.

    I'd look at him as a SP option in FA. I think he will get more than his future value though. Depends on the team's position as well.

    Another 6 scoreless for you know who tonight. Is it worth nothing that Logan Warmoth is playing CF and off to a great start?

    May have a future as a utility guy but he's already 26 by end of season I believe.

    Iím just hoping still. Thereís always guys with weird career paths. JD was 26 when he became an everyday player.

    Best part of Warmoth right now is he's not on the 40 man since he was exposed in the Rule 5 draft and no one took a flier on him. Would like to call him up if we get more injuries down the line or in September.
