Found January 26, 2012 on Friarhood:
  MLB released their top 100 prospect list yesterday for all baseball. Obviously it is a bit skewed in favor of big names like Matt Moore and Bryce Harper, but there are six Padres on the list which puts them in a tie for first. I personally don't agree with the entire list especially when the highest Padre is at #37 (Alonso) and Casey Kelly still makes the cut (#50). The biggest problem I have is Joe Wieland and Robbie Erlin didn't make the cut. Let's put that in perspective: on Seedlings To Stars top 100 list Erlin comes in at #11 and Wieland #24. Interesting stuff indeed.

But the pats bc Brady is a beast...

  Happy Friday everyone! Hope you all aren't working too hard and getting ready for the weekend.
