2020 Bowman Chrome is set for release and the checklist is out for review. I have reviewed each prospect on the checklist and my comments are below. Please take a look, provide comments and spread the word about PFC! Overall this checklist was not the best. A number of players are too old or just did not have the upside. There are a few players that I do like that have potential. Links to Ebay have been provided.

What’s your catcher ranking among Gabriel, Ivan and Francisco?ReplyDelete
1.Francisco Alvarez - Young and has upside but there is risk.ReplyDelete
2.Ivan Herrera - Solid overall
3.Gabriel Moreno - Small position, a little older.
Catchers can be tough, risky and take longer to develop so small positions may be a good idea for all 3 to be honest.
Bayorn Loa gonna start out very expensive...do you sell if you open one? Tough to sell a good prospect however. Just thinking the price as high as it will be won’t be there long term and you can reinvest later on in him.ReplyDelete
I agree. Seems to be a high priced prospect. He has not played and is 17. I would most likely sell.Delete
Thoughts on Jhon Torres?ReplyDelete
I like him buy for me I prefer to see players play a lot at A ball. I need to see more and better contact.Delete
