San Francisco Giants Top 10 Prospects

General Manager Brian Sabean has been a stabilizing force for the franchise as he continues to find the right mix of veteran acquisitions and prospects to keep the Giants competitive almost every...

2014 Top Prospects – Part 3

In case you missed it, we here at the Lunatic Fringe got to do a Guest Lecture at Surviving The World, a unique photo-webcomic by Dante Shepherd.  He’s a big baseball fan…but forgive him for rooting for the Red Sox, will ya? As with any system, there are quite a few players who don’t make the Top 10.  With the Giants, it’s interesting because of quite a range of second...

2014 Top Prospects – Part 2

Giants’ Top 10 lists have been rather intriguing and spread out…at least, after Kyle Crick.  There are varying thoughts about which of the mess of pitchers the Giants have are ahead of the others, there are disagreements about the ceilings of the low-ceiling offensive players, as well as how much to believe in some short-season stats. That’s not going to stop me from entering...

Steamer Projects: San Francisco Giants Prospects

Earlier today, polite and Canadian and polite Marc Hulet published his 2014 organizational prospect list for the San Francisco Baseball Giants. It goes without saying that, in composing such a list, Hulet has considered the overall future value those prospects might be expected to provide either to the Giants or whatever other organizations to which they might someday belong. What...

2014 Top 10 Prospects: San Francisco Giants

Despite their penchant for dealing prospects for veterans, the Giants have amassed an impressive group of young arms that ranges from potential frontline starter to back-end innings-eaters (and everything in between). What the organization lacks, though, is a potential impact bat.   #1 Kyle Crick | 65/A+ (P) Age G GS IP H HR K/9 BB/9 ERA FIP 20 21 19 84.1 57 2 12.70 5.34...

Tony Bucciferro and the 23-Year-Old Strike-Thrower Question

Quick: Who led minor league pitchers in FIP this year?* You might guess one of the top pitching prospects in baseball, such as Archie Bradley, Taijuan Walker, or Robert Stephenson. Or you might rack your brain thinking about 2013 breakout A-ball pitchers like C.J. Edwards, Tyler Glasnow, or Edwin Escobar. In either case, you’d be wrong, because the answer is little-known White...

A Minor Review of 2013: Giants

There is always a bit of a lull between the end of the minor league playoffs in September and the start of the annual top prospects lists in early November. Because of that gap, I’m breathing new life into an old feature that I wrote for the site in FanGraphs’ infancy back in 2008 and 2009. The series ‘A Minor Review of 2013′ will look back on some of the major happenings...

Polanco, Hanson Single as Curve Net Just Four Hits

The Curve’s hot bats didn’t carry over from Saturday night’s double header, as Flying Squirrels starter Edwin Escobar scattered four hits over 6.1 innings, and two Squirrel relievers worked the final 2.2 frames to combine for the shutout. Alen Hanson went 1-for-4 with an error. Alen Hanson led the game off with a single up the middle, but was left stranded as Escobar retired...

The Fringe Five: Baseball’s Most Compelling Fringe Prospects

The Fringe Five is a weekly exercise (introduced in April) wherein the author utilizes regressed stats, scouting reports, and also his own heart to identify and/or continue monitoring the most compelling fringe prospects in all of baseball.

Nostalgia Versus…

Well, that was fun yesterday.  Mostly.  Even if the California League played like a group of Pony League All-Stars. The Carolina League came into town and absolutely beat up on Cali’s best, 12-2.  The California League committed four errors, and a few mental ones on top of it.  San Jose’s Edwin Escobar gave up five runs (all earned, somehow) in an inning of work, the first...

That’s right, tomorrow (Tuesday the 18th) is the California-Carolina League All-Star Game.  Yep, I’m going.  And you can, too.
