  1. Thank you for all the updates all season(s) long.

    What do you think of Chad Rogers making the big league roster next year?

  2. Look how many 1st-round draft choices are in the bigs.

    Alonso and Grandal(hence Latos)
    Frazier
    Leake
    Stubbs (hence Choo)
    Mesoraco
    Bruce
    Bailey

    OR, basically every single one since 2004 (Bailey) and 05 (Bruce).

    I went back to Ryan Wagner, 2003, to find one who isn’t.

    Wondering if the newer guys — Nick Travieso, Stephenson and Erwin — will make it.

    • @Johnu1: I think Stephenson is a shoe-in to make the bigs. Not sure about Travieso yet and probably still to early to tell on Phil Ervin. Although, I like Ervin’s chances.

      • @prjeter: I definitely like Ervin’s chances. A college first rounder should have probably started a few levels higher than Billings so it’s hard to know how good he’ll really be playing guys who were going to their senior high school prom a year ago, but all signs show some very encouraging results before getting injured in Dayton.

  3. Thanks, Bill & Greg for all the updates. I never miss this section on the Nation. You’ve made me look so “in the know” with the guys at work and my dad relies on me to let him know who’s on their way up thanks to this section.

    A+ job my friends!
