Minor League Top 100 part 1 (yet again)


I introduced this prospect list over at Far From Port prior to my arrival here at Sodo Mojo. It’s based off my own thoughts and is my own creation. So basically if you disagree with it blame me not any of the other guys.

I live am stationed in Montgomery, Al. So I get the opportunity of seeing these guys come through the minor league system. I’ve seen guys such as Adam Moore, Alex Liddi, Nate Tenbrink, Carlos Triunfel, Matt Mangini, Nick Hill and Matthew Lawson all over my time here in Montgomery and I hope to see more this year.

I really created this in the effort that we (as a Mariner community) can follow prospects over the course of the year. The goal will be to update it over the course of the year. Giving us a map that we can all follow the success and failure of these young guys with a dream.

I’ll be releasing the next tier this Monday (2/14) and I hope to have the second half released sometime early March.
