Top Minor League Prospect Performances

Matt Garrioch (of MLB Prospect Guide and formerly of MLB Bonus Baby) has put together what, from what I gather, is purely a statistical list naming the top performers in each league based on the numerical factors he believes best correlate to major league success, with some age limits thrown in to eliminate organizational filler. To take out the suspense, a number of Rays did surprisingly well: Tim Beckham - #11 hitter in IL Chris Archer - #3 pitcher in IL Hak Ju Lee - #1 hitter in SL Ty Morrison - #7 hitter in SL Kyle Lobstein - #8 pitcher in SL Jake Hager - #2 hitter in MWL Plenty of other Rays on the lists as well beyond the link.

Question About Dave Eiland

This question comes from Jeff Zimmerman (of FanGraphs and Royals Review fame): Back when he was with the Devil Rays in 1998-2000, does anyone remember why he had two surgeries? How fast did he come back from Tommy John? Was his recovery rushed at all? Any longtime fans out there care to chime in?

The Orioles Are Using Performance Enhancing Timed Suckiness

Or at least that's what Mississippi Matt Smith argues in his latest, most incendiary piece on NotGraphs. It is surprising to read how unmitigatingly terrible the Orioles are, despite being 1.0 game of the top spot in the toughest division in sports.
