Happy Friday, gang, and welcome to Minor League Ball's Gameday.

***Friendly reminder: tomorrow, Saturday June 4th, the Minor League Ball Community Mock Draft will commence at 12pm central.

The Gameday spreadsheet has once again joined the fray after a rusty return on Thursday, and you can open it in a new window by clicking the link below. The first tab is a primer on what kind of formulaic treasures await inside the rest of the tabs.

The Top 175 Prospects, Sleepers, and IFA's

Pertinent Friday links

  • Little-known Prospect Insider brought the goods with a look at this years' HOF class, where the only #1 overall draft pick (Griffey) and lowest-drafted player ever (Piazza) to make the Hall are being inducted on the same day.

  • Royals Review celebrated a decade of Dayton Moore drafts by penning a piece that ended up hitting for the 'SB Nation cycle' with its use of a pie chart, a table, a graph, and a poll

  • Jen Mac Ramos of McCovey Chron and likely a few other places profiles the SF Giants prospect behind 'The Homeless Minor Leaguer', a humorous video diary of farmhands on the road.

  • Beyond the Boxscore lives up to its name by doing 100,000 runs of a Monte Carlo simulation in trying to predict the College World Series
  • John at Hardball Times closes out a 9-part series in which he derives comedy from old baseball cards
  • Chris Cotillo of the Daily Dish continued his draft Q&A series with Oklahoma U right-hander Alec Hansen. I think there's an outside chance the Marlins could pop Hansen with the #7 overall pick due to their strong ties with the state and the university itself - feel free to roast me hard on the audacity of this claim.
