  1. Anderson, the High-A pitcher we got from the Red Sox, was ranked #17 on the Giants Top-30 by MLB.COM.

  2. Richmond: Hinojosa is about the only position player hitting. Several guys on your Top 50 were promoted or are scuffling.
    Is Caleb Gindl a prospect? He's doing fairly well in a SSS.

  3. I'm kind of surprised that the Giants haven't promoted Reynolds, Howard and Garcia to Richmond yet. Evan's has been aggressive with prospects before.

  4. Just curious. You say you can't get excited about non prospects in AA. Does that mean you've given up on Hinojosa as a prospect? You seemed pretty high on him last year. What's changed?

    1. Whoa there pardner! Do you think maybe you might be taking this a bit too seriously? I have mentioned Hinojosa almost every day. I didn't think his line of 1 for 4, BB was really worth posting. There were some other players with better lines but there really is not one other legitimate prospect in their everyday lineup. Thus the comment. Does that answer your question? Geez!

    2. Also, you might want to go back and re-read the comment. "Sorry, but I just can't get excited about posting game lines on non-prospects which is the MAJORITY of the Richmond lineup right now." Note that MAJORITY is not the same as ALL.

    3. Richmond Anonymous is not the same as Just Curious Anonymous!

  5. Whoa jeeze yourself. I'm just asking a question. I enjoy reading your blog everyday & appreciate the work you do, but I ask a question you seem to be massivly offended. Don't take every question as a personal attack. I talk about you blog with other fans and appreciate your opinions, but you seem to freak out when people ask you about your own words. RELAX! I didn't attack you, didn't say your opinion was stupid. I asked a question. Read my comment I say, "just curious". Take note of my words and politeness.

    1. (Deep breaths). OK. Thank you for the kind words about the blog. I appreciate your reading and commenting. It just seemed to me that your "just curious" question was framed to create a narrative of me being inconsistent or a too quick "bandwagon jumper" which seems to be a favorite attack line in the blogosphere. I apologize if I misread it.

      Just to be clear, CJ Hinojosa is having a fine season for Richmond and his stock is rising on my prospect rankings. Problem is the list of legitimate hitting prospects at Richmond pretty much begins and ends with CJ. I mean, Caleb Gindl? Please!

    2. Maaaaybe Slade Heathcott, but even he is more of a reclamation project than prospect at this point.

    3. I appreciate the reply. Out of all the blogs I read yours seems to be the most informed out there. Other blogs do exactly what you talked about, trying to create radical statements just to get people fighting. I have learned about a good number of prospects from your site. You seem to get info that I can't find on the web anywhere else, so when I have a question yours is the first place I go. I'm sorry if it sounded like an attack on you, but that was the last thing I wanted to do. I actually wrote that question three different times, trying to word it correctly. I hate the term bandwagon numbers, as no one can or should define someone's level of fandom. Other sites seem to run hot and cold on prospects, but you seem to take the big picture view. You show age vs level, average age at level, month by month splits. As a Giants season ticket holder I appreciate your hard work. Once again I thank you for answer. I have been thinking of a handle for your site and ginally came up with one. Look forward to reading more.

      Coach B

    4. Thank you again for the kind words. Glad you like the blog. It is a labor of love.
