Phillies Top 20 Pre-Season Prospects in Review

I've mentioned and quoted John Sickels from minorleagueball.com more than a few times around here. I really think he does good work and knows what he is talking about. Whether you agree or not is totally up to you. I'd just suggest for anybody who reads him to remember how difficult it is to project what kinds of career paths minor leaguers will take. There are so many factors that come into play as a young person develops professionally in any walk of life, let alone to do it in front of thousands of people every night. The players are paid well and are doing what they love, but it still is a high pressure job any way you slice it. To make a long story longer, Sickels has just released his list of the top 20 Phillies minor league prospects prior to the 2005 season. New names will be added in 2006 of course, but it is an interesting look back on how players who came into 2005 with such promise fared. More on this to come, but for now I'll put the spotlight on the list created by Mr. Sickels. Enjoy.
