Minor League Ball Gameday Discussion and Links, March 2nd

Happy weekend prospect watchers. Here's today's thread to discuss spring happenings in Florida and Arizona. Some potential items of interest for you:

***Are international bonus babies worth the money? We'll start studying this with a look at 2006. Starlin Castro cost the Cubs $50,000. Several other guys cost a lot more but have done nothing.

***Washington Nationals prospect Anthony Rendon will not open 2013 with the big league club, despite an impressive spring training thus far. That's logical: he missed most of last year with injuries, additional experience can't hurt him, and it keeps the service clock from starting.

***Jackie Bradley: 8-for-14 so far (.571) through six games with the Red Sox.

***Cleveland Indians first base prospect Mike McDade: 6-for-12 with a home run. Competition Chris McGuiness is 2-for-13.

***MinorLeagueBaseball.com is polling scouting directors about top defensive prospects.
