Way back when, when this blog first started up, I wrote a piece about the timetable for prospects, and how to look at a player and properly assess his “prospect status” and things like that. I wanted to write a followup, go over some of those ideas again, and expound on them a bit, because I’ve been getting a bunch of questions via e-mail, and here in the comments section, asking about guys like Landon Jacobsen and Greg Jacobs. So, I felt like I’d try and answer them in a broad manner and give sort of guide for you to make things easier.

Lakewood’s defense of their Sally League title has gotten off to a somewhat slow start, as the Blueclaws sit at just 7-7, 4.5 games behind front running West Virginia in the Northern Division of the SAL. The two biggest culprits to date are the bullpen and the weather, the latter of which the Blueclaws obviously can’t control. Garrett Hill and Michael Dubee have been a bit shaky in the pen, and Andrew Cruse is looking to get back on track after a rough outing last week.
