BA: 2008 Top 10 Dodgers Prospects

Clayton Kershaw!!

1. Clayton Kershaw, LHP (2)
2. Andy LaRoche, 3B (1)
3. Chin-Lung Hu, SS (11)
4. Scott Elbert, LHP (3)
5. Blake DeWitt, 3B (8)
6. Chris Withrow, RHP (--)
7. James McDonald, RHP (--)
8. Jonathan Meloan, RHP (7)
9. Delwyn Young, OF (13)
10. Pedro Baez, 3B (--)

等我入手BA實體本再詳細補足Top 30,我順手將去年排名寫在後面括號裡,從此可大概知道除了最頂尖的Kershaw和LaRoche地位穩固外,Elbert因傷掉了下來(仍備受期待...但因傷得給他很大的問號,尤其Dodgers有 "左投必死" 傳統)、DeWitt和Meloan在排名有所進步,但在現實上他們的表現並不如預期來得好,Blake仍搖搖撞撞,還沒證明能像強者前輩那樣年紀輕輕站穩高階;Meloan則在上Major後進入撞牆期、Hu和Young則有表現超乎預期的球季,讓排名向上直升。而今年名單裡最讓人驚喜的當然是James McDonald,撇開另兩位從無直接進Top 10者都是新人(Withrow、Baez),McDonald去年可連Top 31都排不進去,進步驚人...雖然天份不足,BA也並沒有相當看好他的未來。

WTF? That's it? That was only what it cost to get Cabrera? Just Maybin and Miller? Dude, we could have so landed Cabrera...... (and stick him in LF, he would become our version of Manny)

Yes we have many good young players to build around, but when you can get one of the top 5 hitters in the game for such a low price, you should go for it.

What Marlins asked the Dodgers for is 4 of C-Bill, Andy LaRoche, James Loney, Matt Kemp & Clayton Kershaw for one fat Miggy. That's totally insane.

Another factor I guess is we have a even bigger gap between good and normal prospects in our farm system than the Tigers'. So the Marlins only ask for our premium.

By the way, knowing that Andy LaRoche is still qualified as "prospect" is oh-so pathetic for the Dodgers' management.

to Starberry & Morikawa-san:
I think Maybin and Miller are great prospects, but they are not ready for the Big league.

Though rumors point out the Marlins would like at least 3 out of Dodgers top 5 young players, I still don't think such kind of trade is going to happen -- even Colletti knows such kind of trade is unfair for the Dodgers. They might have under some negotiating program with the Marlins. And the Tigers offered some good prospects that the Marlins can't afford to refuse at some time, then that what just happened...

It's good for the Marlins to rebuild, too.

However, I don't think the Marlins really want that much good young players from Dodgers... they just waiting for someone making a few mistakes... Colletti might make that mistake if our boss did not say something a few days ago.

Many thanks to our narrow-minded boss...LOL

to 一劍浣春秋:
I think the trade would become a good one until we get rid of Juan Pierre. Otherwise, it doesn't count for much.
