If you haven't checked it out yet, you should definitely take a look at Craig Goldstein's in-depth profile of his reloading effort in his 16 team league. It's an excellent read, and extremely interesting. With that in mind, here's the links for the week of March 3rd.

Fake Teams

I started out the week with another entry in the Minor League Keeper Thoughts series, writing about the extremely deep Toronto Blue Jays system.

Markus Potter gave us an in-depth profile of 2011 International signee Ronald Guzman of the Texas Rangers.

Kenneth Arthur profiled a trio of high-ceiling, likely to be top 20 prospects in Jurickson Profar, Bubba Starling, and Xander Bogaerts.

Minor League Ball

Matt Garrioch gave us his notes from the weekend that was in college baseball last weekend.

John Sickels wrote up two different prospect smackdowns, one between a pair of "Tais", and the other between a pair of undersized lefty pitching prospects. Give me Taijuan Walker and Martin Perez out of those pairings.

Our own Ray Guilfoyle is looking for Buster Posey's replacement, as well as the next Giancarlo Stanton.

Baseball Prospectus

Kevin Goldstein released his top 11 list for the Brewers this week.

Baseball Instinct

Thomas Belmont started his top prospect lists by organization this week, releasing his top 21 Diamondbacks prospects list. Not really a huge surprise here, but Trevor Bauer, Tyler Skaggs, and Archie Bradley come in as his top 3 overall.

George Utter wrote up an in-depth profile of Royals top draft pick Bubba Starling, while Belmont wrote up one on Braves' catching prospect Christian Bethancourt.


Marc Hulet of Fangraphs released 3 more top 15 lists this week: Tampa Bay, Miami, and Colorado.

Jason Catania also released prospects #60-41 on his top 100 fantasy prospects list.

Mike Newman of Fangraphs and Scouting the Sally held a prospect chat on Thursday, and I'll have excerpts of that up later on today.

Seedlings to Stars

The staff over at S2S took a look at the top prospects by position for four more organizations this week: The Mariners, Cardinals, Giants and Rays.

Other Sites:

KFFL continues on with their top prospects by league, releasing #6-10 for the American League and the National League this week.

Fantasy Baseball 365 released three top 5 prospect lists last week, including the Rangers, Rays, and Reds.

MLB Dirt released two more top 16 prospect lists, the Giants and the Mariners.
