Any reports on how he looks physically?  He was the third amigo this offseason with Bundy and Hobgood.


Well I hear Linda Ronstadt is looking for a guitar player.

Hearing he looks great physically.

I'll be down there this weekend, will have plenty to say after the trip.

Bridwell currently has a 6.29 ERA. Numbers wise, his ERA has increased in each of his professional seasons. He's 21, in his 3rd years of low A ball, and has never really posted anything impressive, aside from one off instances. I know numbers aren't everything, especially in the low minors for pitchers, and a lot of scouts like Bridwell a lot, but at what point do you need to see some results? Is this just a guy that everyone is kind of hoping 'gets it' all of a sudden?

Good post Adam. I'd be curious as to what Tucker or Jeremy might be able to share regarding Bridwell. It is a little discouraging on paper.

At the lower levels scouts will "like" someone because they see potential in there. It's more common than not for that potential to go unrealized and the prospect fizzles out at some level, so I wouldn't worry too much about when scouts start giving attention to guys in the lower levels. It's when they hit AA you look for, if they are still rising, and getting good reviews there, it's time to really pay attention.

 

These days fans think a guy is a prospect if he is a young player on your favorite team. Actual "prospects" are much more far between and while Birdwell was on that level, I don't think he's really progressed enough the last couple years to stay on that level. That's just me though, I liked him ok in that he had some tools to work with and some potential, but I'm not as high on him as others have been. Liked Rodriguez more, like Hader more, I think I even like Kline better.

It's tough for me to say it, but Jeremy is right.

 

He hasn't taken the next step. Tons of potential, just hasn't realized any of it. And this happens a lot in baseball. It's why professional caliber pitchers are SO coveted. Even guys like Joe Blanton. That's why they get so much money.

Well said...it's fun to get excited about a guy in the lower minors but talk to me when they get to the upper minors before talking about them being a real prospect.

so Josh Hader isn't a real prospect?

I don't understand that logic.

 

A prospect is someone who has potential.

It seems like for 3 years in a row now I've been checking the box scores each day waiting for this guy to put it together and it just isn't happening. I know box scores don't tell the whole story but you would think by now he would be putting it together.

I kind of a agree here. My definition of a prospect has always been any player who shows the tools necessary to eventually be in the Majors with progression.

 

I think Rob's point is generally that outside of those uber-prospects who arrive in an organization with high-pedigree, it's hard to be that excited by anyone before they reach the High A, AA level.

 

I kind of agree, or at-least identify with that perspective as well. I like keeping an eye on the system, from the lowest levels and watching players progress. See how they handle different levels, handle adversity, handle success. Just hard for me personally to get real invested in guys before they are on the verge of knocking on the Major League door.

 

 

Which is another one of the reasons why having you a part of BSL has been great. You are out watching the Minors regularly, and you are following the system far closer than I have or would. You are keeping more names on the periphery for us to watch... I do appreciate that.

Just a semantics thing.  Chris basically answered this with his last post.
