Seeding To Stars Website

I have seen at least 5 rankings of the top 100 prospects. I saw the following link on a Pittsburgh Post-Gazette blog: http://seedlingstostars.com/prospect-rankings/2012 Name any prospects overrated and underrated. The Pirates had only 4 prospects in the top 100. Here is the synapses on the 4 prospects.

I saw the following link on a Pittsburgh Post-Gazette blog: http://seedlingstostars.com/prospect-rankings/2012 Name any overrated and underated prospects. The Pirates had only 4 prospects in the top 100. Here is the synapses on the 4 prospects.

# 9 - Jameson Taillon - there was a lot of talk toward the end of the season that scouts felt Taillon was underperforming his stuff. If those strikeout-to-walk numbers in full-season ball at age 19 are less than he’s capable of, then Taillon could be a true monster if he harnesses his stuff.

# 15 - Gerrit Cole - He’s a big righthander who touched 100 mph in the short stints in the AFL and should sit in the 94-96 range as a pro starter. His wide build suggests durability, and his mechanics strike a nice balance between funk and cleanliness.

# 61 Robbie Grossman - While he doesn’t get a lot of hype as a top 100 type of guy, Grossman is a bigtime sleeper who is quite polished and could be a well-above-average starting outfielder in the big leagues. He could be a bigtime top-of-the-order presence for future Pirates teams, adding to the organization’s enviable outfield talent.

# 72 Josh Bell - A lean, long-limbed outfielder, Bell has bigtime power potential from both sides of the plate. He could be a 35-45 HR hitter down the line.
