Tampa.  Texas too, I believe.  Both are DEEP in talent.
The Braves are really deep too.

yeah, haha, wondering what was up with that.  is that normal to do to rookies?


In fact, a couple years ago... hazing saved an Indians pitcher a very painful experience.

The Tribe was in KC and the team was hazing Kyle Denney by making him dress up as a cheerleader. Their team bus was driving away from the stadium when a stray bullet hit the bus and hit Denney in the leg. Because the team made him wear go-go boots, the bullet only grazed him, rather than going deep into the leg.

wow

1B Dunn
2B Espinosa
SS Desmond
3B Zimmerman

could be a solid offensive IF next year (with the thought in mind that desmond/espinosa will be better defensively).

Loving this Espinosa kid.  If we resign Dunn, we'll have by far the best infield in the majors next season.  Get it Dunn.  Lets also give it up for Scotty for the job he has done today.

espinosa with the cannon!  can you name a club with more promising young talent than us?  god, i'm giddy.
Rizzo has a done a great job of keeping everyone too! Suffered the last two years but their patience is starting to pay dividends.

That's not to say I'm not excited about the next few years, our talent is just getting here right now.  I don't think we're all that deep yet.  Getting there though.

The Braves and Marlins have more young talent than we do. We are far behind in that as far as our division is concerned.

Braves have nowhere near the young talent that we do.  Braves are an old team, really.

Two great farm systems.  Nats could easily be in the top 10 very soon.

Hanson, Heyward, Freeman plus a lot of young pitchers in their system. They are ahead of us. Minor and Teheran are real good prospects.

Don't forget the Royals. They are absolutely loaded with young talent. Their farm system is ridiculous considering that they haven't traded any of their good players (Greinke, DDJ, Soria). Roy Clark worked with Dayton Moore in Atlanta so I'm excited about the direction the team is headed in player development.

JZ, Strasburg, and Espinosa blow Hanson, Heyward, and Freeman out of the water.  Not even getting into Desmond, Bernie, Ramos, Harper, etc.

Not to mention Vizcaino(got hurt) Craig Kimbrel and maybe the best rookie bullpen arm in the majors Jonny Venters that guy is crazy good...also Edward Salcedo who is really raw but scouts compare him to a young Hanley Ramirez/Alex Rodriguez.

The talent is comparable but I think what might set the two teams apart is which team is willing to spend more to keep and acquire more talent.

Is there a reason Ramos and Espinosa can't play in the same game?

Does Wil really need any playing time, at all?
