Pirates Top 11 Prospects

+

KG at BP is beginning his off-season prospect lists and the first one, the Pirates, is free. The Indians will be up soon, as he'll go in 2011 draft order. Huntington seemed to have a good year.

The link above is to a review of all the Top 11 lists in the AL Central. Here, I'll link the "Kiss 'Em Goodbye" piece that BP did on the Indians, a brief postmortem. From KG in the 2nd piece: Phelps suddenly started hitting, including a .317/.386/.506 line in 66 Triple-A games. He's a bit bulky and slow for the position, but with gap power and good plate discipline, he'll at least represent a major upgrade over Valbuena until Kipnis is deemed ready.

BP Future Shock: House/Kipnis updates

# T.J. House, LHP, Indians (High-A Kinston): 7 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 3 K. Over-slot 2008 draftee has been on a roll with one run and six hits allowed over last 19 innings; sinker/slider/change combo with all three pitches average or a tick above. # Jason Kipnis, 2B, Indians (Double-A Akron): 2-for-4, 3B, HR (7), R, RBI. Officially entering super-hot mode by going 9-for-18 with double, two triples and home run in last five games and batting .337/.413/.554 overall at Double-A; passing Chisenhall on Indians prospect lists?

Indians left-hander David Huff: "He is scared to pitch inside. If you are a soft-tossing lefty who doesn't pitch inside in the major leagues, you're going to get killed unless you're Tom Glavine."

Last week’s MORP articles explained that the price of 1.0 WARP3 in 2010 is approximately $5 million. This is in contrast with FanGraphs’ claim of approximately $4 million per WAR. These numbers are even further apart when you considering the fact that 1.0 WAR is worth about 1.16 WARP3, meaning that FanGraphs’ numbers are suggesting that 1.0 WARP3 is worth only $3.5 million. The reason that this analysis is inaccurate is that FanGraphs neglected draft-pick compensation, which ignores about 11 percent of total compensation, and it also looked at only the first year of contracts. Since a number of contracts went out to players unlikely to age well this past offseason, average annual value (or AAV) is a particularly poor way to evaluate these deals. As a result, FanGraphs appears to believe that the price of a win went down over 10 percent during an economic recovery from the worst recession in decades.

This is pay content from BP. Among the interesting points: Laffey and Masterson are both "Red Light" injury risks, Sizemore and Westbrook are both "Green Lights."

BP runs down the players that will dominate the majors for the next 10 years. No Indians major or minor leaguers make an appearance in the top 20 but two make an appearance in "just missed." Care to guess? I'll post it in the comments in a day or two.
