Minor League Ball Gameday Discussion and Links, March 1

Nolan Arenado, Mr. Roboto - USA TODAY Sports

Good afternoon prospect fans. Use this thread to discuss news and happenings and results from today's spring training contests in Florida and Arizona. A few possible links of interest for you.

****MinorLeagueBaseball.com has this breakdown on Jurickson Profar vs. Oscar Taveras including spray charts and park factors from the Texas League. This article is worth a close study.

****Baseball Nation's Grant Brisbee on the Houston Astros and international scouting.

****Should the Arizona Diamondbacks give Paul Goldschmidt a contract extension? Is he gritty enough?

****My old mentor Bill James says that Washington Nationals manager Davey Johnson belongs in the Hall of Fame. Do you agree?

****Philadelphia Phillies pitching prospect Ethan Martin threw two scoreless innings yesterday, looking very good while doing so. I think I'll get a prospect note up about him this weekend.


****Colorado Rockies prospect Nolan Arenado helped turn a triple play yesterday. He's an interesting case: scouts weren't sure about his glove coming out of high school but loved his bat. Now, his defense is really quite good, but people wonder if he'll hit enough.

****Mark Prior signed a free agent contract with the Cincinnati Reds. Seems like a good time to write up a Prospect Retro about him.
