Spring Training Update, 1/20/2020

A cold snap ripped through Florida today.  It was 49 degrees when I climbed into my car to drive to the Complex … in shorts, because I’m not a native Floridian.  And, it was bound to warm up.  It did, a little.  Starting times still fluctuate a little, but arriving around 9:00 AM is good practice for spring training.

Open Discussion: Week of January 20th

Baseball was all abuzz last week with the Astros cheating scandal.  The organization was fined, lost draft picks, and the manager and GM were suspended for a season.  They were later fired by the Astros owner.  The Red Sox and Mets managers were subsequently let go as they were mentioned as being involved in the final report on the Astros scandal.  The Red Sox will likely receive their own penalties when their own cheating case comes to a conclusion.

2019 Prospect Discussion, 11 thru 33

It’s been a while since I posted about any of our young prospects.  I would like to complete this series before I begin going to the Complex every day.  These articles have been about players I have actually seen.  So, they have been mostly about players at the GCL level – prep school draft picks, college draft picks, first-timers from the DSL, extended spring training guys before they went to Williamsport, and some young guys who repeated the GCL.  There are going to be some extremely small sample sizes.
