Giolito
Kopech
Lopez

I'll update that list today and we'll republish tomorrow.

Rosario or Torres, who is the best NY SS in 5 years?
Eric A Longenhagen
12:21
Gah, that's hard. I'll say Rosario.
Zack

Could Blake Rutherford be starting in NY in 2018? How good do you think he can be?
Eric A Longenhagen
12:22
That's probably fast but weirdly not impossible. I think Rutherford could handle full-season ball right now which could put him in Double-A by some point in 2018. I think he can be a middle of the order bat.

Meadows for De Leon- who says no/ what would one team need to include to make it happen?
Eric A Longenhagen
12:23
PIT says no, LA needs to add....Barnes and a flier arm?
Jerry
12:23
What is realistic for Drew Jackson? A poor man's Brendan Ryan?
Eric A Longenhagen
12:23
Not that kind of glovework but that type of defense-first player, yes.
Tom
12:24
Why do I have a strong bust sense about Clint Frazier?
Eric A Longenhagen
12:24
Anti-Ginger bias?
Tom M.

Just how valuable and how high can the ceiling of JP Crawford be? How concerned are you that ever since his "hi-A" ball breakout season that he's moderately struggled both in AA and AAA? Can he be a high OBP guy with good/great defense at SS?
Eric A Longenhagen
12:25
I think the offensive statistics were inflated by the hitting environment at Double-A but yes, Great D and OBP are the calling cards and I still think Crawford is one hell of a prospect despite his meh year with the IronPigs.

Did your wife receive the hair dryer, if not did you get the infamous Sir Alex Ferguson hair dryer treatment?
Eric A Longenhagen
12:25
No. Carson and I had issues recording and I left the house too late. Got stuck in traffic. Hair dryer was never delivered.
Joe
12:25
Who's your favorite prospect in AA or higher who seems to be relatively overlooked by the industry?
Eric A Longenhagen
12:26
Off the top of my head, I buy into Mitch Haniger, Ty Blach as a starter....OH, German Marquex doesn't get nearly enough love for my taste.
Zigs
12:26
Would love to get your thoughts on Nick Senzel. What kind of stats could he put up in a typical season and do you think he could get pushed to the majors this year like benintendi did last year.
Eric A Longenhagen
12:27
Bat is really advanced, defense has improved, doesn't have monster raw power or the potential for it but yes, has a chance to move quickly and is my pick for the first bat of the 2016 draft to reach the Majors.
Gio
12:27
Is Bird a top 10 1B? 10-15?
Eric A Longenhagen
12:28
Average regular for me, not sure where that places him in the 1B meta
Jim Lonborg
12:28
Thoughts on Bobby Dalbec? Is he a likelier major league starter than Sam Travis?
Eric A Longenhagen
12:29
Huge raw pwoer, had historic swing and miss issues at U of A make the profile rather risky for a college bat. Travis has the higher floor, Dalbec the higher ceiling.
Ricky
12:29
The podcast title insinuates a discussion about flooring. I hope it is not a discussion about flooring.
Eric A Longenhagen
12:30
I honestly don't remember what we talked about and have no clue what made the final recording and what didn't. I hope the bet Carson and I made wasn't left on the cutting room floor because it is a doozy.
Pb&Js
12:30
Hi Eric, is Austin Barnes still considered a prospect? His minor league stats are intriguing, especially his low K%, but will he ever get a shot at a full-time roll?
Eric A Longenhagen
12:30
Yes, I like him. Full report.....
there
Sailor Jerry
12:31
Think Thyago Vieira can be an impact arm for the M's in 2017 a la Edwin Diaz or still another year away?
Eric A Longenhagen
12:31
Secondary stuff isn't as nasty as Diaz but yes, could pitch in the bigs next year.
Sally
12:31
The next 3 seasons Aaron Judge will average a WAR of ______
Eric A Longenhagen
12:31
2
12:32
a .5, a 1.5 and a 4
Brock Holt!
12:32
You doing a top 100 list or tiered by fv?
Eric A Longenhagen
12:33
True list, governed by FV but I'm not just tossing all the 55s in a tier and saying "they're all the same"
