Bubba Starling (Royals)

I don't care what I sometimes I read about his abilities, I'm giving up on Bubba Starling, not that I'm holding anything any way.  Despite constant reinforcement from some decent coaches, Bubba's BB rate has declined every year.  His K rate is up from last year.  His power and speed are down from last year.

The dude is not progressing.  He's just another one of those "5-tool, raw" prospects who make us wonder what could have been.


I just wrote about Dahl, and yesterday he had a MONSTER day. Here are two more strong buys who happen to be in the Rockies farm system as well: Raimel Tapia and Ryan McMahon.

With rumors circulating about the possible moving of Tulo and/or CarGo, the Rockies would have nothing left but prospects. And Tapia and McMahon are two of the best in the system. 

Tapia has the plus hit tool. McMahon has the plus power tool. More importantly, each of their next promotions put them in the CAL hitter's league, like our friend Dahl. 

Simply put, Tapia's .330 avg will increase with more XBH and McMahon's high amount of doubles will translate to HR. 
Buy now before their promotion which could come soon following on the heels of Dahl's promotion to the CAL, because the Rockies need to move these guys fast if they have any chance of legitimacy (esp. if they trade their star players).

My STRONGEST BUY recommendation to date....

My STRONGEST BUY recommendation to date...

Buy Rymer Liriano - AAA Promotion (Now hitting in the PCL)

Ive said it a million times. Invest in hitters who will soon be hitting in the CAL or PCL leagues. Well, Rymer just got promoted to the PCL (AAA). And if thats not enough for the five tool player, he just had a monster night for his AAA debut:
3/4, 2 doubles, 4 runs, 3 RBI, 1 walk

Just because people forgot about this stud does not mean you should. 

Heres a link to his ebay listings. Go go go...
