Prospect lists

Jonathan Mayo of has his top ten right-handed pitching prospects list out this week and it’s got Jameson Taillon at #3 and Gerrit Cole at #6. The placement seems odd (I think most people have them flipped), but man, it’s just nice to see two Pirates in the top ten. There’s a deeper discussion to be had about whether or not the Pirates’ system is too top-heavy as currently constructed and if anything can be done about that in the near future, but for now let’s just sit back and appreciate that if you’re going to be top heavy, it’s nice to have guys like this at the top.

About Pat Lackey

In 2005, I started a WHYGAVS instead of working on organic chemistry homework. Many years later, I've written about baseball and the Pirates for a number of sites all across the internet, but WHYGAVS is still my home. I still haven't finished that O-Chem homework, though.
