I won't share the full list, but Robert (1), Kopech (11), Madrigal (14), Vaughn (35) made the list.

Holy shit.. I expect all 4.. But not Kopech and Madrigal that high... How is Bowden viewed?

Jim has probably seen like 10 ab's combined from everyone on his list. lol

And when I saw that he had quotes about each player from GM's and player personnel I thought he was going to have quotes from like scouts and stuff that weren't with the organization that the guy plays for; even if anonymous. Rick Hahn thinks highly of Luis Robert? NO WAY, JIM!

If Betts signs I’ll dance naked anywhere you ask me to.

I had a brain fart putting Eloy in right though, for sure. 😆

My best buddy broke his wrist on a play like that in college and it destroyed his career; a true freshman starting at a top 5 program. Never recovered fully from the injury.

When I saw that, I cringed at his wrist rolling under his body.

I think you could put Eloy at shortstop and it wouldn't matter. That lineup would score 20 runs a game. Defense be damned.

MLB Pipeline says Vaughn is the highest rated first base prospect since Cody Bellinger. A lineup of Robert, Madrigal, Moncada, Eloy and Cody Bellinger??  Goosebumps.  Mazara and Collins could have breakthrough seasons as past top prospects and we wouldn't even notice...and poor Tim Anderson...batting champion ignored.  

Highest Ceiling: Vaughn
Not only is Vaughn the best all-around hitter among first-base prospects, he's also on the short list of the best all-around hitters in the Minors. He could produce a .300 batting average, 30 homers and 80 walks on an annual basis.

How are we obtaining Cody Bellinger, or Betts?

Sorry to hear about your buddy. Wrist injuries can be devastating to baseball players.

We could be 3 months into the season next year and people honestly might be calling for Vaughn to be promoted. He's going to smash Birmingham like no one has.

Soxtalk can really suck.  You get a little excited about something you read...you post it and then the howling negatives come out of the woodwork to tell you how wrong and stupid you are.  Ok Vaughn isnt Bellinger...hes Frank Thomas 2.0.  Better?  .300 hitter with 30+ homers and 100 walks hitting in a lineup with 4 other superstars. Im gonna go dream somewhere else.

You call that a dream? .300 hitter with 30+ homeruns? 

 

Pfft. Vaughn's winning the triple crown, at least once. Get your pessimism outta here
