Right. Borchard will not turn out like Hutchinson. It's not a lot of games, he's just in a slump.

I love reading Phil, he gives great scouts and has less emotion than most of us have. :smile: He even sheds light on K Dubs' moves, and they make sense. I think I love that guy!!!

I was curious what we know about the minor league pitcher rumored to be coming to the Sox from the A's. Sounds like he might be a pretty good prospect?

Phil hinted that the other minor leaguer coming to the Sox as part of the Koch deal is a position player who was a high round pick, not J.T. Stotts (ss) or Jeremy Brown (c)

Anthony Webster, eh? Haven't heard much of him. What can any of the minor league experts say about him.

Anthony Webser is an outfielder with great tools but hasn't played in full season ball yet. Next year he should open the season at Kannapolis which will be his first full season league. Phil Rogers compares him to Marquis Grissom as far as skills. He has already shown a decent batting eye, striking out as much as he walked last year. But numbers below A-ball don't really mean much.

How can he possibly be above Rauch and Honel then?

Projection.

If he attains his potential,an everyday player will always project out higher than a pitcher,because a pitcher plays once every five days.

Keep in mind Webster is a pretty raw talent right now,and is at least three years away from being considered for a major league roster,his ranking is based on him developing the skills he has now.

I could see how he ranks above Honel but honestly in my opinion I say he's too far away to rank ahead of Rauch.

Also perhaps because of the surgery and getting hammered in April / May, Rauch isn't as highly regarded as he once was.

I don't know about that. If Honel reaches his ceiling (frontline starter), he will affect more AB than Anthony Webster ever will. Buehrle, for example, factored in on over 900 AB this past year, no Sox batter had over 600 AB, and probably didn't reach 700 PA's.

I don't agree with Webster's ranking ahead of Honel. Honel will finish next year as a 20 y/o and may reach double-A.

I know, I don't think you feel Webster's a better prospect than Honel at this point.

However, I don't think he's ranked ahead of Honel because he's a position player.

No it is based on raw talent,I have my issues with that,but that is based on who is doing the rankings.If you and Randar made up the list it would come out quite different,I just toss my thoughts in.

Minor League Closer = Minimal impact on MLB roster.

I'd be very surprised if Almonte logged over 150 innings of MLB work in his career.

That really doesn't bode well for Royce Ring then...

I think Royce Ring is pegged as one of the exception to the rule types, especially in what they expect out of him
