From your discussion, does it seem like Baker is thought of as the best 1B prospect in the Pirates org? (I like Hague quite a bit, as I wrote on my blog, many ages ago, and then Curry :)

I never say things like that unless I’ve heard it from someone in the organization. If it’s a guess, I always preface it with “I would think”, “My guess”, I’d assume”, etc. And most of the time, those comments are based off something I’ve heard, just not from a high up official.

I could see someone like Curry, if he keeps it up (Baker, too, but I think I like Curry a bit more), go through both Bradenton and Altoona, and be in Indy by end of April 2012.
