John Sickels Q&A

Unread postby consigliere » Tue May 01, 2007 7:49 am

Ok, I am doing a Q&A with John Sickels. He is arguably THE source when it comes to minor league prospects.

Wikipedia entry: From 1996 to 2005 Sickels was a columnist for ESPN.com, after which he started his own blog at http://www.minorleagueball.com. Besides the blog, Sickels is a regular contributor to the fantasy sports website http://www.rotowire.com. He also hosts "Fantasy Focus" on XM 175 on Fridays. All projects, like his work at ESPN, focus on baseball's minor leagues.

Anyway, if anyone has any Indians prospect related question(s) they wanted to know, let me know. Post them here, PM me, or email me. I am compiling a list of questions to ask him, but as always want to be sure to get input from other fans/writers so I am sure to cover all bases.

Ask Sickels about Neil Wagner. You rated Wagner 27th out of 40 while John had Neil as a Honorable Mention after going up to 32. Baseball America put Neil on their '31st team' after going up to 30 player rankings.

On his stats alone, I was thinking that Neil would have been rated higher.

Questions are already submitted, but if I get a chance to followup, I will ask.

Problem with Wagner is he is all heat. He has really no secondary stuff.
