WTF?! Where was the OL? Going for it on fourth-and-13? When did Eli Manning become Harry Houdini?


The only two interesting PECOTA projections are Ryan Kalish - 276/340/383 and Jeff Natale - 264/361/388. These are NOT minor league numbers; they are MLB numbers. Last year, PECOTA projected Jed Lowrie‘s breakout season maybe it will do the same for this pair.

Kalish, age 19, is starting to make top prospects lists. He did get hurt at the end of the season. The system does not account for it, so Kalish’s 2008 may not be his breakout season. PECOTA sees Johnny Damon as a top comparable for Kalish.

Natale is not a prospect, but he can hit and get on base. The scouting reports indicate that he can’t do much else, which reminds me of Todd Walker. Natale is going to have a tough time getting a regular job in the Show without developing other skills but this could be his year. Regardless, he could be valuable as the "other" half of a platoon at second or first.


After reading the quote below from Peter Gammons blog:

"We'd better enjoy [Josh] Beckett the next three years," one Boston Red Sox official said, "Because we won't be able to sign him after his deal is up after 2010."

Well, I guess C.C. Sabathia isn’t coming to town next year.
