haha i'm listening to a lot of their broadcasts, i don't know which one to listen to?!?!  lots of great things happening with our minor league clubs tonight.

pea**** throws mid 90s too right?

taylor jordan, who i think is the most underrated pitching prospect in our system since we drafted him, has pitched one helluva game: 5 IP, 2 H, 3 K

I actually never got to see him but yeah he throws in the mid 90s and has a nice breaking ball. He has really exploded onto the scene over the last two seasons. Big strikeout guy

I'm a Taylor Jordan fan too. This outing will improve him to a Sally league leading 4-0 on the year.

Not to burst anyone's bubble... but all the scouts think in the end, Pea**** ends up in the bullpen as a late inning set-up man.

Quality fastball velocity, but they say it's very flat and his other pitches won't be strong enough to likely stick in the rotation.

I hope they're wrong!

He gets Ks, I'm surprised you aren't :az: over Pea****. Scouts hate Milone but that doesn't stop you from liking him.

Pea**** just turned 23 and is doing really well as a starter against quality AA prospects. He deserves more recognition.

Video highlights from Harrisburg's game tonight:

Pea**** fastball looking explosive. Some nice D by Lombo and good hits by Norris and Moore

I said I hope they're wrong. I do like Pea****, a lot. Just speaking on what I've read when the scouts look at Pea****.

JCA, what do you know about SOSH's "Adopt a Prospect" concept?  It seems like some of its likeness would be a good addition to this board if we could get a good level of participation.

I've kind of suggested it in the past.  Maybe we could come up with list of guys who are worth following.  Brian might be helpful.  It looks like BBQ has the idea with Millone.

For those not familiar with "Adopt-A-Prospect," as I understand it, various members agree to track individual prospects, put a little bio info like birthday, how acquired, school, etc... as well as any scouting reports they can find.  The member tracking the prospect might find and post newspaper articles they come across as well as periodically update stats, DL status, etc... 

I don't know if Sue Dinem or Souldrummer have this covered, but I'd think if several members here did it, it would be less labor intensive.

What Chief / Tom / Nathan could do is set up an "Adopt a Prospect" subforum in the Farm thread, perhaps move some of the historic threads on players like Hood, Marrero, Millone, etc... into there, and let it grow organically.  If you or Brian (or SF or Hammonds) could identify a few guys worth following, then members could claim them and start threads.

Is this what you had in mind?

Yeah, pretty much.  I have stumbled across the sub forum at SoSH many times looking for information on different prospects and it really seems like a neat concept.  I know we have enough people that follow the minor league players that this may be a viable idea for this board if people were willing.  I would certainly be willing to contribute to such a valuable addition.
