Prospect watching

It's great that so many other people are contributing great stuff to this site, because I've been slacking. My effort has been geared toward the next big project: college splits. That's the topic of my THT column today (co-authored with my partner in college splits, Kent Bonham):

For as long as minor league splits have been readily available, better college data has been the next logical step. Last fall, we decided to make it our quest. Since then, we've built a database of more than 9,400 active college baseball players, from more than 270 teams. And counting.

For those already familiar with the format and layout of, the site should be pretty straightforward. As many splits as humanly (or technically) possible, for every single college player. That's the goal.

It's still very much a work in progress, but you can check out by clicking here.

In other minor league action, John Sickels wrote a prospect retro on our favorite future Cy Young Award winner, Ben Sheets. Enjoy.
