John Sickels recently wrote up a very interesting prospect retrospective on Cal Ripken, Jr.
Good stuff and it’s very interesting to see how his power blossomed through out his minor league career and that fact that even a Hall of Fame player like Ripken would spend four years in the minors offers hope for a lot of young players.
Joe Sheehan did a nice job of evaluating what effect Aubrey Huff will have on the Baltimore Orioles in 2007 and he seems to be cautiously optimistic. While no predictions are made, he says the Orioles have a “chance” to compete for the Wild Card. Great read.
