  1. Luis Urias - 2B SD

    Padre homer here and dynasty Urias owner. I think the Padres will absolutely bring Urias up the next time he forces their hand (i.e. gets hot). 819 OPS certainly isn't bad considering age/level, but it's he's not exactly beating the door down right now. Also, it wouldn't surprise me to see Pirela heat up soon - he's not a great player but he's a better hitter than he's shown so far. If Pirela heats up, it could delay Urias a bit longer.
  2. Vladimir Guerrero Jr. - 3B TOR

    Yep.
  3. Vladimir Guerrero Jr. - 3B TOR

    I can't remember a minor league hitter that I felt more confident was going to turn into an All Star than Vlad Jr. How about you guys? Is he the bluest blue chip in decades? Since Griffey Jr?
  4. Luis Urias - 2B SD

    Future batting champion.
  5. Hudson Potts 3B - SD

    Agree on Potts; I think he'll be a top 100 prospect in 2019 rankings.
  6. Christian Villanueva 2018 Outlook

    CV throws the ball away after charging a soft grounder and cost the Padres 2 runs in the first. Again, my office literally looks into Petco Park and I watch 150+ Padre games per year, so I’d like nothing more than to find a 30 HR 3B seemingly out of nowhere. Hell - it’s probably the most shallow position in the whole organization, with their best prospect just arriving in High A. But this is getting old, fast.
  7. Christian Villanueva 2018 Outlook

    Padre homer here and also a Villanueva owner. He has too much pedigree (was highly thought of in 2 organizations) and good minor league performance to simpy write off as a Tuffy Rhodes clone. At the same time, he's an absolute butcher at 3B. I watch virtually every Padre game and I've been surprised at how bad he's been as some of the early scouting reports (low minors) suggested he was adequate at worst, and possibly a plus defender. Alas, that was in his early 20s and it's clear to me that the defense instincts aren't there. I bring this up because as soon as he cools off, he becomes a liability, and with Urias probably in San Diego by early May, Spangenberg/Asuaje are both superior defenders at 3B and won't have a place to play. That said, I'm along for the ride, and if that bat is 25-30 HRs, perhaps Andy Green is willing to sacrifice defense since he'll have plus defenders at the other 3 infield spots.
  8. Daulton Varsho - C/2B/3B/OF ARI

    is this Gary Varsho's son?
  9. Mitch Keller - SP PIT

    Most underrated SP prospect in baseball? I wouldn't be surprised to see him in Pittsburgh by mid-July.
  10. BPS Annual Early Catcher Rankings

    I’m a biased homer, but i’ll be stunned if Austin Hedges hits less than 25 HRs this year.
  11. Tommy Pham 2017 Outlook

    Is this a lightening-in-a-bottle career year from Pham, or do you guys think he's a top 20-30 OF next year?
  12. Shohei Ohtani - Angels

    How would he be giving up $200M? Why can't he sign a 1 year deal for the $5M limit and then sign the $200M extension in 2019?
  13. Cal Quantrill - P SD

    First full season after TJ, so some adjustment period is expected. Cal League is obviously hitter friendly as well. Padres probably shut him down after another 8-10 starts in San Antonio, then Cal should start fresh there next April. If he makes the leap, he could be in SD by the end of 2018.
  14. Razzball's Midseason Top 100 Prospects

    Good to see a few Padres in the top 100, but surprised neither Gore nor Quantrill made the list.
  15. Mike Trout 2017 Outlook

    Halos are 2 back in the Wild Card race. They have every reason to want Trout back as early as possible.
