Mr. MacPhisto wrote:The most promising power prospect for us at 1B right now appears to be Whitney, if he can stay healthy. He's on pace to hit 30 in Low-A. I hope the Tribe plans on moving him up to Kinston. If all goes well then I'd guess he's a guy we could look for in 2009.
Brown seems a bit underpowered. I think Mulhern and Garko can output 20 HRs a season at the least. Aubrey might be able to do 30. Brown seems like a 10-15 HR guy.

I say this because of two things, his power and BA inconsistency and the complete failure to improve his BB/K ratio as he has moved through the minors, even this season. My bet is he would be no more than a "flash in the pan" for a few weeks in the majors, at best.Goedert and Gimenez have a chance to be special, but they need to finish the year without a substantial falloff and confirm with a growing performance next season. Gimenez is really interesting, that BB/AB and BB/K ratio, and considering he is doing it with great power at Kinston, is really an encouraging development. Historically, he has a very high HBP rate, but I haven't seen if he is continuing this trend (kind of a different way to be a "designated hitee" I guess). As a plus, being a OF, 3rd baseman and catcher makes him half of a two man bench.Goedert is way too early to call, he can be anything from Manny Ramirez as a middle infielder to Scott Pratt. But he is at least really interesting.
