How do you say Rosario is on another planet? When I look at his numbers I see Andrelton Simmons 2.0. What am I missing?
Eric A Longenhagen
1:16
He's got room for another 15 pounds and better feel for airborne contact than Simmons. Non-zero chance Rosario grows into 18+ homers.

Is Sandy Alcantara going to be a lights out reliever?
Eric A Longenhagen

I'm on him as a starter.

what's your take on cody reed, 2017 and also long term?
Eric A Longenhagen
1:17
I still believe he can be a #3/4 and was kind of shocked he was as bad in the bigs as he was last year.

Am I like the Vladimir Putin of Baseball?

Do you own a $3,000 track suit? Then, no.
Do you seek to annex foreign lands and consolidate infinite power under your own umbrella of rule? Then, no.

Which Burdi is the better Burdi?
Eric A Longenhagen
1:19
Haha, Zack. Both are nasty when healthy but Nick hasn't been and I think Zack has three pitches.

Any chance Luis Urias can stick at short?
Eric A Longenhagen
1:20
It deserves more than passing dismissal and consideration of how batted ball data might allow for it but based on what I've seen, no.

Out of the fringe prospects the White Sox got this offseason (Dane Dunning, Victor Diaz and Luis Alexander Basabe) who will have the brightest future?
Eric A Longenhagen

Any idea on how many sites there are dedicated to prospect coverage of just one team such as Tim Williams at Pirates Prospects?
Eric A Longenhagen
1:22
No idea but I admire their hustle.

Domingo Leyba (40FV), Ildemaro Vargas (not FV listed: Cistulli guy), and Sergio Alcantara (honorable mention)... they all had strong winter seasons. What do you need to see this summer to bring them up a notch in your FV?
Eric A Longenhagen
1:24
Vargas was a minor league FA that was brought back so definitely seen as a fringe guy league-wide. Leyba just has to keep hitting until I can't ignore it anymore. Alcanatara...not sure. He's always going to be like 5-9 and slight-framed, a high probability 40 for me. 70 arm though.

Which model of radar gun do you have?
Eric A Longenhagen
1:26
I don't. I'm poor and have excellent, gun-peeking eyes. But if someone took me out, Pretty Woman style, and told me to pick out a radar gun it'd be the Stalker Pro II.

If Mike Matuella stays healthy this season, do you see him moving quickly up through the Rangers' system given their dearth of SP prospects?
Eric A Longenhagen
1:28
Yes. That's a large "if" but when I saw him throw as he came back last summer, his stuff was too good for low-level hitters. Healthy Matuella's stuff plays at Hi-A immediately.

I don't have a comment, just wanted to thank you for all of your work. The lists are great to read, looking forward to the NYYs one later tonight.
Eric A Longenhagen

Thank you, we're almost done and I shall rest. I'd expect Yankees late this week once it goes through the editing grinder.

Frazier only averages 2.5 war? What's his peak WAR?
Eric A Longenhagen
1:29
4? 2.5 is good, that's what Greg Polanco and Marcel Ozuna put up last year.
1:31
Okay, I'm off.
Thanks for stopping by, enjoy the WBC bonus in addition to spring games this week.
