Cove Chatter 100: Top 50 Links

ICYMI – This is the final time I’ll repost the Top 50 prospect links. Now, this should be the first post to show when someone clicks on the “Cove Chatter 100” category in the side bar. Instead of just fading away, I’d like for these profiles to be used as a reference (for myself, as well as others) as we go through the season. So know that these links, as well as the rest of the CC 100 series posts, will be only a click away, whether it’s two weeks from now or 3 months into the season. Thanks for following along, and remember that I’m always open for feedback on any of these profiles!

  1. Once again, you’ve got a real nice top 50. If there’s a correct answer to a top 50 list, it feels like you’ve just about got it. There’s a lot to work with here in the organization.

  2. 1. Kyle Crick
    2. Mac Williamson
    3. Christian Arroyo
    4. Martin Agosta
    5. Chris Stratton
    6. Adam Duvall
    7. Joe Panik
    8. Gary Brown
    9. Andrew Susac
    10. Edwin Escobar

    My thoughts on a top-10. I’m have Duvall and Agosta ranked much higher, two guys I think will be productive big leaguers in SF. Crick is Matt Cain with better stuff and low mileage arm. Also big on Arroyo and Williamson at the dish, don’t see as much upside as you do in Edwin Escobar–but I’d love to be proven wrong there as a Giants fan.

    1. Hey thanks for the comment Lyell! Appreciate your feedback. I like the aggressive ranking for Mac. He really was the most impressive hitter in the system last year, and I think he’ll more than hold his own in Richmond this summer. It’s pretty exciting to read the reports about Arroyo, a lot of poise for such a young kid.

      I just value what those pitchers did last year in San Jose so much. For them to dominate the league like that, all either 20 or 21, and Blach in his first pro season, we haven’t seen that kind of pitching in our system in a few years. Escobar may not have the upside of some of the other guys, but his 2013 season was just too impressive for me to ignore. Sabean has raved about him this winter, and it sounds like he’s not far off from the bigs. A lot to like in this system right now, in my humble opinion.

I'd love your feedback!
