    But I am guessing/assuming that McCourt drew the line on Flanders adding any more salary last season ans Flanders started "selling" prospects.
    Yea that is really embarrassing. We gave up Michael Watt (not a great prospect but not a bad one) for Maddux because we didn't pick up money and Bryan Morris (good prospect big upside) because of McCourt's tight wallet. Flat out embarrassing for the Dodgers to have to give up prospects instead of paying off half a person's salary.

    MILB.com is doing their annual top 50 prospects list. Our very own James McDonald checks in at #45

    http://mlb.mlb.com/mlb/minorleagues/...top&pid=457428

    They said it: "He'd started for us his entire career, then switched to the bullpen. The thing that stood out for me was the four more feet of fastball. He was up to 96 mph. It provides some versatility for us. We can leave him in the bullpen or we can give him a chance for a rotation spot." -- Dodgers Farm Director De Jon Watson

    18. Javy Guerra, rhp, Waikiki (Dodgers).
    Guerra and Junior Guerra (Mets) had two of the best fastballs in the league, surpassed only by Andrew Brackman and Kyle Drabek. While Junior Guerra has more life on his fastball, Javy showed more pure velocity, running his fastball up to 96 mph. He also repeats his delivery better than Junior Guerra and throwing more strikes. Javy Guerra's second-best pitch is an average changeup, but his curve remains inconsistent.
    This is from BA's Top 20 prospects from the Hawaii Fall League.

    Should be noted that Guerra was left off the 40 man roster so he could be taken in the Rule V draft.

    Scott Elbert ranked 37th on MILB.com's top 50.

    Scott Elbert Top 50 Prospects Profile | MLB.com: Minors

    He said it: "I love it. Whatever I can do to help the Dodgers win. This is where they put me. It's not like I can't start again." -- Elbert on pitching out of the bullpen after his callup

    From a BA Chat about the AFL

    Q: David Bowen from Potsdam, NY asks:
    What? NO love for the Dodgers? Were either Lambo or DeJesus close to the Top 20? How would you rate them?
    A:

    Kary Booher: Man, this is a tough crowd today. Accusations of no love for the Dodgers or the Brewers' Lorenzo Cain already. Fun stuff. In speaking with a number of scouts, no one singled out Lambo, so I took that as a sign that he was in that after-20 pack of a really good, not great guys. But DeJesus did get consideration for the back half of the list, falling out because he didn't hit enough and did commit nine errors, one that saw on a routine play in which he lolly-gagged scooped it and then threw the ball into the dugout. Scouts liked his range and think he'll be in the majors. I docked him a little for that and, with Eric Young Jr. surging at the end, I left No. 20 open for the taking. So Young snagged it.

    Reed (Los Angeles): What is the current state of the Dodgers farm system? They've graduated many players to the big leagues in the past few years so do they have anything left?

    SportsNation Aaron Fitt: It's awfully thin -- there's a precipitous dropoff after about No. 6. That's not such a bad thing -- I'd rather have a bevy of young talent in the majors than a highly ranked farm system. But wasting high picks on guys like Preston Mattingly and Luke Hochever doesn't help.
    Sounds like a fair assessment.

    Yea, a lot is riding on our recent first rounders, Withrow and Martin. They can really make or break how our system is viewed. It might sound weird since it's only two guys but imagine if we are able to turn both guys into 2 front line pitchers. That would be huge.

    The good thing is although the system has thinned out we have some intriguing sleepers. Eovaldi, Delmonico, and Gordon are just a few guys who sound promising. It will be interesting to see their development this upcoming year.
