Crazy for prospects

I’ve read two articles recently, one by Buster Olney and one by Peter Gammons, profiling a young prospect as one of the best ever. Olney discusses consensus number 1 pick Steve Strasburg, going so far as to say he might be the greatest prospect ever. And if the guy really throws 99-102 with movement as well as two plus breaking pitches, well… he might be right.

Gammons mentions a Marlins OF prospect who I’d actually never heard of, but apparently he’s so good that not only does Gammons heap praise upon him, but he claims the Red Sox were ready to trade Manny (as well as money for his salary) to the Marlins for just this guy.

Both are worth reading, but I have to wonder, could these guys really be as good as advertised?

  1. Strasburg looks amazing, the breaking stuff especially from the ESPN video
