Now that we’ve covered all top 10s for each team, we zoomed out and ranked all 30 MLB organizations. Congrats to Rays fans, condolences to Brewers fans.
Welcome to the first installment of my Planting Flags series! I know, great name right? I was going to call it pitching tents, but I was trying to avoid additional restraining orders that could potentially hamper my 2019 in-season coverage.
So Planting Flags, what the hell is it about? Simple, I drop a spicy take regarding a player and then explain why this potential outcome is possible. Perhaps very possible. That said, we’re keeping these takes as spicy as possible, because let’s be frank, this post isn’t all that interesting if I say something that the general consensus agrees with. So, the goal here is be both spicy and responsible. Meaning I’m not going to make a statement that has a 1% chance of coming to fruition, so instead we’ll live in the neat 20%-30% range. Now without further ado, let’s make our statement.
The Peoria Javelinas’ roster is comprised of players from the Atlanta Braves, Milwaukee Brewers, Tampa Bay Rays, San Diego Padres, and Seattle Mariners. A case could be made that the Padres, Braves, and Rays are the top three organizations in the game when it comes to prospects, but, at first glance, the Peoria squad appears to be lacking firepower.
