Minor League Ball post winter meeting open thread and update

Otto Greule Jr

Good morning prospect watchers. I hope you enjoyed the 2013 MLB winter meetings. Here is an open thread for you to discuss today's baseball news.

I am still working on the Kansas City Royals Top 20 Prospects list for 2014. I thought it would be done by now but I'm unhappy with where my analysis of the system currently stands. I have a bit more research to do on some players also before the grades are final. There's also a bit of writer's block going on right now, which is common for me in October as the lists and book work ramps up. I usually hit my stride about the middle of November, but everything is running a month behind right now. Thank you for your patience.

By way of potential discussion, try these two on for size:

1) Based on where their current roster stands, how many games will the Seattle Mariners win in 2014?  Write me down for 77.
2) How many games will Robinson Cano play in 2014, and what will his slash line be? Put me down for 149 games, slash line .299/.352/.485.

What say you?.
