Got the names and positions of the 7 Bong?
The cupboard has been restocked quite nicely.
I'm really ready for the spring and baseball to get here.
Thanks for the list Bonger. That looks impressive.
It will be interesting to see what Brinson turns into now that he's gone. When I saw him with the big league team last year, he didn't overly impress me, but that said he probably was just too young and unpolished to make an immediate impact.
Maybe the Brewers will someday regret letting him go, but it sounds like the guy they got from the Marlins will definitely help them now and for another few years.
56. Keston Hiura, 2B
69. Corbin Burnes, RHP
96. Brandon Woodruff, RHP
Where are Ray and Ortiz?
Brinson certainly has the most star potential but looked overmatched at times. Harrison made a leap in lower level ball but I saw him play in Appleton and he looked totally lost.
Tough to project what these guys "might" be down the road but to Yelich is already where we think Brinson could be and he's signed for 4 more years.
Ray is trending the wrong way fast. Never trust Keith Law
Keston Hiura is healthy. That PRP injection in his elbow worked as a method to avoid surgery. He’ll be in his first big league camp.— Adam McCalvy (@AdamMcCalvy) January 28, 2018
Still should never trust Keith Law
Law believes that Woodruff and Brett Phillips are the most likely players on this list to have an MLB impact in 2018 and suggests that both could make the team out of Spring Training.
But but but...... Woodruff is rated the Brewers 4th best prospect and Phillips is the 10th best.
Your top prospect might be a long ways away from playing for the big club, but still be a top prospect.
I guess that makes sense, but someone who could make the 25 man roster should be better than the 10th best team prospect.
Corey Ray has a .973 OPS
Corey Ray hit 3 dongs today.
I'm starting to warm up to Corey Ray
Now he's facing a suspension.
Oh, wait, you said dongs, not bongs.

Those are some numbers.
Jake Gatewood hit a home run to take the Southern League lead at 17. Corey Ray came back tonight to hit HIS 17th of the year. Two Shuckers tied at the top at 17.— Brad Ford (@BrewCrewBlue) July 20, 2018

26 RBIs for @Brewers No. 1 prospect (#MLB No. 30) Keston Hiura in just 14 @MLBazFallLeague games. He has more than twice as many than all but two other players in the AFL. No one closer than a dozen away.— MLB Pipeline (@MLBPipeline) October 30, 2018

Bruce: Does Corbin Burnes project as a top of the rotation starter or more of a mid? Should I be optimistic about the Brewers young starting pitching with Burnes, Woodruff and Peralta?
Keith Law: I think he’s more of a #2 starter, above league average, not someone who’s top 15 in MLB. I think Woodruff is a mid-rotation guy. Never a big Peralta fan – he’s too dependent on one pitch and the deception it generates.
Nate (Seattle): What’s your thoughts about Orlando Arcia’s bat? Is there still hope of him being an above average regular?
Keith Law: I’m still a buyer. I see an above average regular.
Jared: I know Hiura didn’t hit for you while at the AFL, but do you think he is a future star with the bat?
Keith Law: Yeah, I am not really worried about it. Every scout I’ve ever asked about him has said they believe he’ll hit.
Ted: Are you a believer in Corey Ray still? His hit tool was awful, but his other tools seemed to bounce back last year.
Keith Law: I didn’t see him in 2018 (I saw him a few times in 2017), but scouts who did told me he was selling out for power, so the K rate was high but he posted the high HR total. That’s not a great formula for long-term success and also not the hitter I thought he’d become.
Not a Keith Law fan here, but a little bit more now that I know he doesn't like Betsy DeVos either
No shortage of quality in spite of wheeling to stack the deck late.
Anxious to watch the Hook reconnect with the young pitchers this Spring. I was disappointed when Johnson left but Coach Hook may change that.
