Doing a daily link roundup is an idea I've kicked around for awhile, and frankly, it should be one of the easiest things in the world to do. I've just never stuck with it for some reason. Today is the day I start... for real this time.
• Over at Bless You Boys, the fantastic David Tokarz has posted his list of the Top-30 Tigers prospects. It's a quality list and with a few exceptions, I'm in agreement with his rankings.
• In case you hadn't heard, there is a brand new sports blog network out there - the G9 network. It's a group of all female bloggers, and one of them is Allison Hagen who runs the Tigers blog, No Run Support. It's a great blog with near daily updates and in one of her most recent updates, she was good enough to link back to my write up of Jacob Turner. Many thanks to her for being a friend of Central In Focus.
• Jerry Holt is yet another in the Twins stable of impressive bloggers and runs the appropriately named, The Baseball Blog. He has his Top-20 Twins prospects for 2011 posted and his picks are interesting with Ben Revere and Kyle Waldrop surprisingly high, and Miguel Sano surprisingly low. This just highlights how no two prospect evaluators are the same. People will rate players high or lower for a bevy of reasons.
If you're a Royals fan, be sure to stop by Kings Of Kauffman and read up on Mike Engle's breakdowns on the teams top 25 prospects. Good reads.
• One more site I want to highlight - and they've really done some incredible work in the past - is Indians Prospect Insider. If you are an Indians fan of any level - or if you're at all interested in their system - this is THEE #1 site to check out. Their work there is absolutely phenomenal and is a first stop for me whenever I need further information on any Indians prospect.
