Look back at top 100 of 2014
« on: April 11, 2019, 12:10:21 pm »
Very good read from John Sickles (Athletic $$). This was a loaded class. 

Astros Highlights:
13) Carlos Correa, SS, Astros: In A-ball at the time the list was written but another young star, .277/.355/.476 in 2078 plate appearances, 15.7 fWAR....
15) George Springer, OF, Astros: Also a success, .266/.356/.469 in 2843 at-bats, 18.7 fWAR....
28) Jonathan Singleton, 1B, Astros: Biggest bust on the list so far, .171/.290/.331 in 420 at-bats, -0.9 fWAR; released.....
48) Lance McCullers, Jr, RHP, Astros: Another “very successful when healthy” case, 29-22, 3.67 in 454 innings, 9.8 fWAR....
51) Mark Appel, RHP, Astros: Never made the majors; one of the biggest busts in prospect history; an interesting case study that bears more detailed analysis in a full article....

Also included Astros farm hands Folty and VV.
Always ready to go to a game.
