As mentioned in the comments, I’ve been plugging away at the Player Reports for the 2012 Watchlist and am now done with the first pass. Once I receive the books from Baseball America and John Sickels, I’ll complete the “Report Not Yet Written” and amend/rewrite the others as needed.

I’ve also created pages on Facebook and Google+ to give folks more avenues to here, expanding from just an RSS feed and Twitter. I also want to remind folks that you can subscribe to comments to get alerts. Essentially, I’m trying to give folks an array of tools to keep tabs on the site with as little effort for both you and me alike.

Finally, I’ve also updated my “About” page to include the site’s email address (warning: I only check it about once a day; a DM on twitter, or a shout-out in the comments gets to me faster). Suggestions, comments, offline conversations, offers to volunteer with daily “News & Notes” during Potomac homestands, etc. can be sent there. I’d love to expand my network of spies to Pennsylvania, Florida, and New York, and of course, anyone with a hankering to write about the Draft is welcome (just not my thing; too knee-deep in providing day-to-day coverage).

Otherwise, enjoy this unusually warm weather while it lasts. If nothing else, it’s certainly helping with the new field at the Pfitz.

  1. Really nice workups, Luke. If this is what we’ve been waiting for, it was well worth it. Thanks.

  2. Where is Taylor Jordan? I know he’s getting tj surgery, but does that mean he doesn’t count on the list?

    • I removed him from the list because I knew from the timing of his surgery he’d be a non-factor in 2012. Truth be told, I shouldn’t have included Jack McGeary last year for the same reason. I know that’s harsh, but to paraphrase Earl Weaver on injuries, we’ve got to focus on the living, not the dead.

  3. What’s the take on Pam and Drew Storen (and Stanford grad) favorite Jack McGreary? He did after all go to the oldest continuously running prep school in the US (1645) that has to count for something?

  4. Read an article over the weekend about Randy Tomlin, last years Harrisburg pitching coach.
    He’s living in Lynchburg, seemingly on a temporary sabbatical for a year dealing with ‘personal family’ issues. He says the Nats offered him an open door when he’s ready to come back.
    I bring this up because anyone who’s folowed the Nats minor league system have seen what a year with Paul Menhart & then a year with Randy Tomlin has done for our pitchers. Turned suspects into prospects awfully fast.
    All those years I watched the Orioles get high marks for their drafts and then absolutely nothing would ever happen to them. No development at all.
    Hope Tomlin can make it back ASAP.
