There are a ton of premium prospects in the Florida State League, and has been the case in the last couple of years, we've got one of them. Ryan McConnell at MILB.com takes a look at the best, and includes Will Inman among them. Gotta love this bit:
I, too, want Will Inman to be that guy :). Preferably after signing a below-market deal to spend his entire career in Milwaukee anchoring a rotation with Yovani Gallardo and (do we dare hope?) Mark Rogers.
I might tinker some this year with head-to-head stats at Minor League Splits -- it would sure be cool to know how Inman does against Jose Tabata and Cameron Maybin. One of the things I've wanted to investigate for a long time is how prospects do against prospects: especially in triple-A, it seems plausible that prospects feed on retreads: it doesn't mean anything to me that Ryan Braun will hit a whole bunch of home runs off of the Dan Kolbs and Justin Thompsons of the PCL. But if Braun is racking up good numbers against other teams' top youngsters...that'd be worth something.
