Welcome to the Gameday!

Hello everybody, welcome back to the Minor League Ball Gameday. As always, you can find all your favorite prospects and sleepers below.

Please also look into purchasing John's Prospect Retrospective Project if you haven't already. It honestly looks like a great read and it's for the low low price of just $9.95, which just so happens to be the same price as grande caramel macchiato, an egg and cheese croissant, and a birthday cake pop at Starbucks. I hope you guys don't mind if I leave this here for the foreseeable future as a little reminder to those who haven't pre-ordered.


The Top 150 Prospects and Sleepers


On the bottom of the spreadsheet there are tabs for the Top 150 Hitters (Top 150 H), Pitchers (Top 150 P), Sleeper Alerts! Helium Tank, Tempurpedics, 2014 First Round Picks, and recent International Free Agents (IFA). Check it out by clicking the link/header above and a new window will pop up.
