Baseball Prospectus to Begin Satisfying the Daily Needs of Prospectfiles

Kevin Goldstein announced Tuesday that Baseball Prospectus will now be doing a daily piece called the Minor League Report. It appears essentially to be a very pared down verson of the Ten Pack: a handful of prospectus with a quick report on what noteworthy performances they put up. I like Goldstein and I like prospects and I like having as many angles I can have on prospects, Baseball Prospectus chief among them. So this is a good thing.

Keith Law Chats Braves Prospects with Talking Chop

ESPN's Keith Law talks with SBN Braves blog Talking Chop. I found the last paragraph especially interesting. "The obvious weakness is the lack of infield prospects, but I think there's a bigger organizational weakness: their excessive loyalty to certain players. Jeff Francoeur should have been non-tendered, and instead they're taking him to arbitration, even though he's about the worst "everyday" player in the game and seems to blame everyone but himself for his horrendous play. Tom Glavine is a damn charity case. He'd be their eighth- or ninth-best starting option if they sign him, assuming he can pick up a ball without hurting something. If I was Frank and he rejected my $1 million offer, my answer to their counteroffer with would end with "... and the horse you rode in on." Yet Atlanta is the team that can't say no to players with some sort of tie to the organization. They stood firm with San Diego in the Jake Peavy discussions; I wish they'd do the same with their own mediocre players and avoid a situation where Tommy Hanson is ready to come up in June but can't because it might hurt Lil' Tommy Glavine's feelings."
