  1. I went with Pullin again. I also like Neris, Araujo, Tromp, Cumana, Alezones, Carlos Duran (the other Venezuelan center fielder).

  2. Joely Rodriguez. Were he to move into the bullpen, I might expect him to be pitching with the big league club sometime this year. As it is, he still has #4 starter upside.

  3. Can any of us name one lone everyday Major Leaguer who had two lousy minor league seasons? I can’t name one. That is why we will never see Jose Pujols in a big league uni. Pujols is a .210 lifetime hitter in the lowest leagues. There is not one impact player in the past 25 years who struggled like this in two season. Don’t waste your time dreaming on .210 hitters in Williamsport.. It’s a waste of time.

        1. They were disappointing for a 20/21-year old in A ball.
          So much he called his dad and was ready to quit and go into the car selling business.

          1. They drug test now. Mike Piazzas and Jeff Bagwells don’t just appear out of thin air anymore.

      1. That was one bad season. The poster said name a minor leaguer who had 2 bad ones and turned it around. Doesn’t happen. Pujols has had two season batting under .214.

        1. Enough, guys. This is #29 on the freaking list. The sure things are long gone. If they were great picks, they wouldn’t be this low.

    1. I think writing off teenagers based on their statistics alone is kind of not the right way to go about this. But that’s fine, you’re entitled to your opinion, and your skepticism about Pujols may well turn out to be right in this case, Mr. Turdknuckle.

      1. In terms of statistical proof – through the decades – there are so few cases of .213 hitters through two seasons amounting to anything in the big leagues. You can’t even find a platoon guy. Stats are everything and they can be damning. I can give a guy a horrific first year like Asche but the true ML prospect figures it out fast. Check out what Domingo Santana did at Pujols’ age – and there’s a guy the Phillies let go. And he may not even pan out. Just saying, do not buy into the fantasies of Tocci and Pujols. A major leaguers just have it and that undefinable “it” doesn’t blossom when they are 21. They had “it” when they pick up a glove and ball at age 5.

  4. Phillies knew about Pujols swing when they sign him . They fixing it he has 80 rated power vg bat speed . His set up was horrible and he tried to pull everything. He needs a full yr in lakewood which he’ll get next can’t really take rookie ball stats as a good read. 160 at bats and their learning everything at once.dave kingman, Adam Dunn, Mark Renolds, all have or had big power with very low ba.Freddy Galvis had a horrible year this past season. Yes he might never it but it’s way to early to tell. He still a teenager .

  5. Jiandido Tromp. 20 year old with 20 HRs last year. There is no way he’s not one of the top 30 prospects in this system.

  6. I voted Joely Rodriguez again. He came on at the end of 2014 and is about 50-50 to be part of a future Phillies rotation.
