Losing Russell...the sky may not fall

+

• MLB's Prospects Webpage shows six SSs in the top 30.

• There are 14 prospects listed as SSs on the International Prospects' top 30 list.

• Not all 20 of these prospects will pan out or stick at SS.

• But some will -- they will add to an existing pool of quality SSs.

• Some quality SSs, with experience, are going to become available because of this.

• News flash: supply & demand affect relative costs

• Russell was one SS prospect that some scouts worried would not stick at the position.

• The sky is not nearly falling as fast as the 2014 post season aspirations are rising.

• Cheer up if you're only looking for reasons to be down.
