Panik isnt ready yet. Id guess Arias, Pill, and Peguero make it.

I've been a Peguero fan, wanted him to make the roster since before camp.

He will disapoint. He will never be a big league starter.

lol.

Seriously though, Opening Day, Doyers stadium... lego
Villalona looking like he'll be starting in SJ, just optioned there this morning.

he's still 22.

I think 2 years he's in the bigs.

God damn.

I know people say our Farm system is weak. But I don't necessarily agree. Yes, we don't really have any super star prospects...but look at our roster, they are all already in the bigs winning championships.

i think we have some nice pieces of young talent that can come up in the next few years and help keep us rolling, dynasty style.

I don't think it's a matter of being scared, that place is just a huge dump. If you're going to go, spend money on seats and don't sit anywhere other than the lower level and between 3rd base and 1st base, otherwise good luck.

I concur with this statement.

I don't see many bats in the minor leagues that jump out at me, but the trio of Crick, Blackburn and Stratton has me very excited about the starting rotation for YEARS to come. It's very encouraging to see, and it makes the sting of Wheeler a little less painful.

going from the murder trial to the big leagues in 2 years is incredibly unlikely. He wasnt even showing much promise before the legal trouble. Id say a Sept. callup in 2015 is more realistic, if he makes it.

The murder trial has nothing to do with the time it takes him to reach the majors. He's been in pro-ball since he was 16 years old. If he's going straight to Fresno, and he murders it down there ( ), he'll get a call up at some point regardless of what has happened in his past.

He was fantastic in the DSL, but just mediocre during spring training. If he starts in San Jose, it's going to take him a bit to get up to the MLB level and that's what it is looking like right now.

I don't think we need much.

We have no super star prospects but guys who are likely to be decent pro ball players, who given the offensive core players we have, should fit in nicely.

The murder trial that totally interrupted his baseball development has nothing to do with it? He was gone for quite a while, and im guessing being accused of murder by the legal system doesnt exactly help you focus on your swing.

Hes not going to Fresno. Hes starting back where he left off in A ball. Hes never showed any signs of being a legit prospect since we first signed him. I dont get where people got this idea that he was almost ready. He was looking like an early bust before the murder trial. Hes been out dealing with that for what, 3 years? He isnt going to just step back into baseball and be on the fast track to the bigs. He last played regularly in the minors in 2009.

I hope he can overcome all the troubles and make it someday, but outside being a 16 year old manchild worthy of a lottery ticket signing bonus, hes been very underwhelming.
