Second, I don't get the love for the Angles players here. Besides Conger, I don't think I would trade any my A's top 10 for the players on the list.
Third this quote seemed out of place to me:
Even the player who dominated the league for most of the season, Midland first baseman Chris Carter, departed for Triple-A before the year was over, leaving the RockHounds to battle through the playoffs without the league MVP. The supporting cast rose to the occasion, however, as Midland won the league title over Northwest Arkansas.
The RockHounds roster was representative of the league as a whole, with a few standouts and a depth of players who are interesting but are probably marginal major leaguers at best.
The Rockhound lineup at some point had a ML quality regular prospect at almost every position on the field. Donaldson behind the plate, Cardenas at third, Weeks at Second, yes Josh Horton is not a good prospect at SS, Carter at 1b, Brown in CF, Sulentic at LF and Peterson/Spencer in right. I count 6 position players that have ML futures as regulars if their development proceeds as expected.
So basically I don't get Will Lingo at all.
