Blue
When Paul DePodesta left the Dodgers in 2005, the team was in position to contend for a long time. Then Ned Coletti took over, and systematically ruined the franchise. They're done.

The Mets are going to be good
With Sandy Alderson, Paul DePodesta, and JP Ricciardi, they have three of the best minds in baseball.

Mini-Giants
How did Brandon Belt last to the 5th round of the 2009 draft? A guy who plays in the high minors his first professional season and hits .352, with a .455 on-base percentage and a .620 SLG does not have recognizable enough talent to go in the first round?

I checked his college numbers and the skills were there.

If any team out there wants to win, give me a job.

Others:

Charlie Culberson swings too much, strikes out too much, and doesn't hit the ball hard enough, so he's not a good prospect.

Zachary Wheeler got a lot of strikeouts in Augusta but also a lot of walks, so don't get too excited.
