2014-04-01 13:00:00 (link to chat)Right now who's your favorite prospect to watch play baseball?
(Tony from Work)
My favorite prospect to watch his spring was Padres IF Josh Van Meter just because he got a hit in just about every AB I saw--and I saw a lot of his ABs. Jorge Alfaro has been my favorite prospect to watch for a long time be because he can show impact tools on all sides of the ball, and at some point in each game, will do something on the field that makes you say, "Holy shit!"
