That's because it's written by Phil Rogers. They only charge for expert's opinions.

This is what you guys are looking at?

Just in case you didn't notice: that's the projected 2012 lineup within our organization.

We have had some bad prospects. Joe Borchard our top prospect three years in a row? Ouch.

Well, when he was a prospect, he wasn't a bad one; not like Lance Broadway or Kyle McCulloch. He just didn't pan out.

Absolutely. BA had him as the 12th best prospect in baseball in 2002.

I think Borchard always wanted to play football. He's mentioned before that it was the bonus that made his decision.

Borchard is a prime example of the White Sox rushing a prospect only to watch him fail under the pressure. An unneccesary waste of 5 million dollars.

He really thinks that PK will still be on our team in 2012? I love Paulie, but he looked like an old man last season. I cannot imagine what he will be like in 2012. Maybe an Edgar Martinez type player? I just don't see it.

What is the deal with Broadway? Have they just given up on this kid or what? When I have seen him pitch, he always looks pretty good, but I wasn't sure what the deal was with his future in our organization.

Once again, this is who is projected to be at each position from inside the organization. It's kind of hard to project who the designated hitter will be 3 years from now from outside the organization.

He isn't talented enough to be taken seriously.
