Beyond my normal day job, I'm working on a bunch of other stuff for the site from articles to some permanent features to new contributors and so forth, so you'll have to bear with a few slow days until spring training starts. In the meantime, Scout.com released the Top 100 prospects
for the 2007 MLB draft and with us picking third (and 31st I believe), I'd imagine that would interest us all. Any of the first four picks sure sound interesting :
David Price (LHP): ...electrifying, 6-foot-6 lefty who not only has the projectability and explosive stuff, but the college polish to go along with it.
Andrew Brackman (RHP): ...the towering 7-foot righty...
(What else do you need to know?)
Matt Wieters (C): He has thunder in his bat and has an outstanding arm behind the plate that scouts are already raving about. He's one of the best hitting prospects to come along in recent years.
Rick Porcello (RHP):
....armed with a 96 mph fastball and a hard curveball, and his 6-foot-5 frame gives him a huge amount of upside.
For an added bonus, three of the four (excluding Porcello) are in college right now so the road to the majors should be a little shorter.
