I've been kicking this idea around for a bit, and with the "Road Ahead" post, I thought this might be a good time to discuss it. I haven't come up with a good title yet, so hopefully somebody can help me out with that.
It seems like prospect debates often devolve into "Hall of Famer" or "Total Bust." In reality, there's a lot of gray area; role players, league average performers, once-in-a-while All-Stars; career paths that are rarely projected for top prospects. The idea would be to take a prospect, and describe 3-4 different career paths based on their skill development. John did something similar with his Scott Kazmir Crystal Ball (http://www.minorleagueball.com/story/2005/9/22/174917/818), but I would look for a more in-depth discussion of the different career paths rather than a prediction of exact stats.
I think it would be an especially interesting feature for a tools guy like Cameron Maybin or Drew Stubbs, as they could carve out a niche being anything from a 4th OF who plays all 3 positions to a perennial All-Star.
Thoughts? Possible titles?
