A Top Prospect Chat-like Thing

I have neither the fancy software or the time to organize a chat.  But, I do have Twitter and I do have the comment section here.  Since many of you have asked questions that others would be interest in, I am going to compile the answers here.  Feel free to ask questions here or on Twitter throughout the day and into the week, I just may be slow to respond and then post them here.

    Really appreciate you doing this, for those of us who don’t do Twitter. Very useful.

    Phillies have a pretty shallow major league roster to start the season, and one that is made up of many graduated prospects. Who do you think is most likely to be their league mandated all-star in 2016 and 2017?

      Wow this is a tougher question that I thought when I started going through the roster. Their best players right now are probably Franco/Nola/Herrera, but NL 3B is deep with Bryant, Carpenter, and Arenado, so is SP, and CF is fairly stacked with Pollock and Cutch. I will still go Franco for 2016, even if they have him DH or play first he is going to be hard to leave off. As for 2017, I will go Crawford because he will be good and NL SS is a lot weaker with Simmons and Tulo gone to the AL.
