It was an interesting weekend at Prospect Junkies, as the site continues to gain popularity. I’m truly thankful for everyone who has helped to spread the word.
On Sunday morning I was a guest on Minors and Majors, a weekly radio show on the MLB Homeplate channel for SirusXM Radio. I spoke with host, Grant Paulsen about a variety of topics including my positional rankings, and the future of prospects Desmond Jennings, Carlos Santana, Buster Posey, Logan Morrison and Chris Carter. I had a great time and I look forward to doing it again someday.
Baseball Rumor Mill recently did a piece where they averaged several lists of prospect rankings to come up an aggregate top 20 list. The master list used data from the lists of MLB.com’s Jonathan Mayo, ESPN’s Keith Law, and numerous prospecting sites including Prospect Junkies.
