    Dylan Bundy #1 Prospect

    As good as Machado is as a prospect, Dylan Bundy's #1 pitcher potential gives him the nod as the top prospect.

    He was my guy on draft day, and nothing in that write up makes me think I was wrong. It's nice to have such a strong top-3.

    Agreed. Gives me a "smidge" of hope for the future.

    Just now saw that. Pretty incredible, both! Good LORD! Cespedes is like a super hero! That vertical jump was just mind boggling. And he did it 4 or 5 times in a row for the camera!

    I'm going to have to raise the BS flag on that. Either that's a lie or he's the new world record holder.

    I know everyone would like to see the farm system in better shape. Me included. But a top 3 like this and the upside present in the top 10 shows much progress from the days Val Majewski was our top rated prospect.

    Hmmmmm, Tom Seaver comp, huh? I guess he can be ranked no. 1 then. .

    My favorite stat, half of which you mentioned: 158 K's, 5 walks. I've never seen a K/BB rate like that, at any level.

    Yeah, I was gonna say that sounds a bit absurd.

    It's a 1300lb Leg Press. 510lb Hack Squat (w/e that is). See video. Skip the HR's and pick it up at 6M30S. Dude is a freak.

    Wish PA wasn't so stiff about signing defectors...

    Oh, and I'm excited about Bundy

    I am excited about everything I read about Bundy. It has always concerned me though when very young athletes lift such large amounts of weight before skeletal maturity. I get worried about that amount of excessive force on the ligaments at such a young age. 500 lbs seems like a lot for a 17-18 year old to me, but maybe I am just too cautious because I have seen the results of improper training too often.

    As long as he isn't putting excessive stress on his ligaments and tendons of his legs, being able to squat 500 lbs and run for that amount of time should mean that he has a great core which accounts for the velocity on his pitches. Should help to mitigate some of the strain on his arm and allow him to maintain his endurance throughout a game. I am tired of how our young pitchers cannot last past 5 innings. I hope they remove the nibbling that the Orioles pitchers have routinely employ in the minors and have them focus on getting out of innings quickly. The one game his brother pitched in Reading last year he was constantly up 0-2 or 1-2 on batters and seemed to routinely go to 3-2 on the batter. That increases your pitch count quickly and minimizes your innings you can pitch. Hope the professional development coaches/staff have a change of philosophy on this idea.

    IMO Machado is the #1 prospect in the system. Right now Bundy is mostly hype.

    I tend to agree. I value professional experience more than some here, apparently. I know most view the rankings as a debate on who has the higher ceiling, but I have grown accustom to players who end up closer to their floor than thier ceiling and, perhaps, that is why I tend to prefer a player with a slightly lower ceiling and a higher floor.
