Have you ever felt as if you have too much of something and yet nothing at all simultaneously? Or you have something you can use down the line, but for one reason or another, it just isn't ready to be used now? There are also the things you already have, but they just are not what you need right now.
If so, you too may be a prospect writer.
Part of the problem is the definition of a prospect; the limit placed upon rookie status by innings, at-bats and days on a roster. The truth is very few players are ready for the show after 50 innings, 130 at-bats or a month-and-a-half of roster time. But according to the rules, they are no longer prospects, whether they are ready or not. And for us, that means those players are gone.
Well, sort of. While we exclude from the weekly top-10 list players who have exhausted their rookie eligibility, there's nothing stopping us from talking about old friends here. You have to love unwritten rules.
