The John Sickels Baseball Prospect Book 2006 arrived today. It has a garish blue cover and lacks text on the spine; but, it’s full of great stuff (as always).
John says Melky Cabrera isn’t “going to amount to much.” But, he loves Jose Tabata – and says he’s the 40th best batting prospect in baseball. Sickels also ranks Phil Hughes as the 26th best pitching prospect in baseball – but says “keep a close eye on his health.” He also writes that J. Brent Cox “should move very quickly.”
If you’re into knowing more about minor league players, this is a good book to have – and fun to read.
