Baseball America's Midseason Top 25 Prospects are out, and the Giants have two in the top ten, plus the first of the honorable mentions:
Top 25 Prospects
5. Madison Bumgarner, lhp, Giants
6. Buster Posey, c, Giants
The Next 25: Tim Alderson, rhp, Giants...
Me, I put Posey above Bumgarner, but since BA are the authorities here, not I, I should really defer to them. naturally, deferring to BA feels a smidge better when they agree with me on the consensus top prospect out there. Whom, I shall never tire of reminding folks here, I wanted to draft instead of Bumgarner back in 2007.
Having the #5 and #26 prospects in all of baseball is a very nice thing. But wouldn't it be nice to have the #1 overall and a legitimate major-league starter instead?
It would, I posit, have been very nice indeed.
I told you so.
