CAP Database FAQ

Version 0.6

--------------------
INTRODUCTION
--------------------
Hello, and welcome to my CAP Database for MVP Baseball 2004. First, I would
like to start off by saying that these may not be completely accurate, as most
of these CAPs are for rookies and minor league prospects. As you may know from
watching baseball, there are many "cant miss" prospects that miss, and many
players who pop out of nowhere to become stars. Most of these players have not
stepped up to bat or been atop the mound at a major league park so there
rankings are based on what will probably happen. Also, there are a lot of
players who need to made, so I am not going to rate each one as I do not know
enough about them. I am only going to do the top prospects, so I am sorry if
your neighbor who is in class AA isnt here. As usual, if you have any problems
with my ratings, would like to contribute, or have a request, drop me a line.

1. PROS
--------------------
Boston Red Sox - Kevin Youkilis
Edit: David Bernard, a 3B on the AA Team. He's 6'1 207. Good Enough.
First Name: Kevin
Last Name: Youkilis
Birth Date: 15
Birth Month: March
Birth Year: 1979
First Position: 3B
Second Position: 1B
Throws: RIGHT
Bats: RIGHT
Batter Ditty: Rock
Jersey Number: 55

Bat Color 4
Fielding Glove: 5
Elbow Gaurd: 2
Shin Gaurd: None
Wrist Band: None

Durability: 80
Speed: 65
Stealing Tendency: 40
Baserunning Ability: 40
Fielding: 50
Range: 50
Throwing Strength: 70
Throwing Accuracy: 65
Outlook: This guy is one hell of a prospect. He has a .501 OBP. Anyone who
manages to get one base half the time he gets up to the plate automatically
classifies himself as a possible star. He'll start the season behind Bill
Mueler but may be able to grab a starting nod. He doesnt have a lot of power
but managed to bat over .300 so he's not just good for his walks.

Boston Red Sox - Kevin Millar
Edit: Just create someone for him.
First Name: Kevin
Last Name: Millar
Birth Date: 24
Birth Month: September
Birth Year: 1971
First Position: 1B

Stealing Tendency: 30
Baserunning Ability: 65
Fielding: 70
Range: 65
Throwing Strength: 70
Throwing Accuracy: 70
Outlook: Still a solid player, should start for the Sox this year and still
play solid ball, hitting only slightly below 300 and a good amount of HRs.

New York Mets - Kazuo Matsui
Edit: Create it...
First Name: Kazuo
Last Name: Matsui
Birth Date: 23
Birth Month: October
Birth Year: 1975

Speed: 95
Stealing Tendency: 80
Baserunning Ability: 85
Fielding: 90
Range: 90
Throwing Strength: 85
Throwing Accuracy: 85
Outlook: A 28 year old rookie. Not unusual anymore after Godzilla came to
Manhatten last year. Just like Hideki, Kaz's HR total will drop, but he will
still grab a lot of hits and steals. He has the qualities to become a Gold
Glove SS. Matsui to Reyes will be a nice double play tandem.

New York Mets - Shane Spencer
Edit: Create Him (he's 5'11, around 210. If there is a minor leaguer like that
then just edit him and move him up)
First Name: Shane
Last Name: Spencer
Birth Date: 20

Birth Year: 1972
First Position: RF
Second Position: LF
Throws: RIGHT
Bats: RIGHT

Speed: 65
Stealing Tendency: 30
Baserunning Ability: 50
Fielding: 65
Range: 65
Throwing Strength: 65
Throwing Accuracy: 75
Outlook: A vet who will help out the Mets OF. Currently in legal trouble being
accused of beating some man in Miami. He could start but probably will come off
the bench. He has a nice bat against lefties, hitting a little over .300 for
his career against southpaws.

Minnesota Twins - Joe Mauer
Edit: Create Him
First Name: Joe
Last Name: Mauer
Birth Date: 18
Birth Month: April
Birth Year: 1983

Durability: 75
Speed: 65
Stealing Tendency: 55
Baserunning Ability: 70
Fielding: 90
Range: 85
Throwing Strength: 90
Throwing Accuracy: 90
Outlook: The #1 Prospect in the game is starting the season behind the plate
for Minnesota. He can get on base but his power is still developing. He caught
half of the runners who tried to steal on him last year in the minors, and his
superb fielding skills should continue into the pro level.

Atlanta Braves - Adam LaRoche
Edit: Create (Height 6-3)
First Name: Adam
Last Name: LaRoche
Birth Date: 6
Birth Month: November
Birth Year: 1979
First Position: 1B

Speed: 68
Stealing Tendency: 30
Baserunning Ability: 60
Fielding: 80
Range: 75

Outlook: Looks to be the frontrunner for the Braves starting job this season.
Last season in the minors he had a breakout season, proving that he had the
power to hit more than 13 (he blasted 20) and he improved him patience at the
plate. He knows his time has come and is fully prepared to take over the bag.

Cincinati Reds - Cory Lidle
Edit: Create (6'0)

Birth Date: 22

Outlook: He's a veteren pitcher, could be an asset to any team. He's not gonna
improve much anymore but he could be a good addition to your rotation.

2. PROSPECTS
--------------------
Montreal Expos (AA Team) - Larry Broadway
Edit: Matt Drumright, a 1B. He's 6'4 just like Broadway
First Name: Larry
Last Name: Broadway
Birth Date: 17
Birth Month: December
Birth Year: 1980
First Position: 1B
Second Position: UTIL
Throws: LEFT
Bats: LEFT
Batter Ditty: Rock

Contact vs LHP: 53
Power vs RHP: 48
Power vs LHP: 54
Bunting: 40

Durability: 75
Speed: 47
Stealing Tendency: 30
Baserunning Ability: 55
Fielding: 65
Range: 75
Throwing Strength: 75
Throwing Accuracy: 65
Outlook: Larry should break into the MLB in one or two years, its just unknown
at what position. Nick Johnson is 1B, and that is Larry's primary position. He
is too slow to take on the OF, but has good range as he pitched in high school.
He has good power but is inconsistant at the plate.

Kansas City Royals (AA Team) - Zach Greinke
Edit: Jesus Ludwick, RP
First Name: Zack
Last Name: Greinke
Birth Date: 21
Birth Month: October
Birth Year: 1983
First Position: SP
Second Position: NONE

Pitcher Delivery: Moyer
Stamina: 53
Pickoff: 55

Pitch 2: Changeup
Movement: 70
Control: 30
Velocity: 71
Pitch 3: Curveball
Movement: 80
Control: 25
Velocity 79
Outlook: Greinke is a great athlete all together. He was a position player
before he moved to the mound. He has a great fastball clocking in the low to
mid 90s and his curveball and changeup are above average. He still needs to
develop his control and stamina but could see time in the pros late this year
or next.

New York Mets (Team AA) - Scott Kazmir
Edit: Er...someone. He needs to be a pitcher who is about 6'0
First Name: Scott
Last Name: Kazmir
Birth Date: 24
Birth Month: January
Birth Year: 1984
First Position: SP
Second Position: NONE
Throws: LEFT
Bats: LEFT
Batter Ditty: Rock
Jersey Number: 1 (alternate is 78)

Fastball Velocity: 96
Pitch 2: Slider
Movement: 65
Control: 55
Velocity: 84
Pitch 3: Changeup
Movement: 70
Control: 60
Velocity 80
Outlook: The Mets are looking to make Kazmir their ace for the future when they
declined all trade rumors saying that he would be the corner stone of their
pen. He has been compared to Josh Beckett, as he has a fastball in the mid to
high 90s. He is pretty consistent, and his only question mark is with his
stamina. The Mets are trying not to over work him by keeping him playing
minimal time. Some scouts believe if he cannot improve he could retreat to a
closer or relief man.

Minnesotta Twins (AAA Team) - Jesse Crain
Edit: Terry Coleman, SP. Just change his position and it works out fine.
First Name: Jesse
Last Name: Crain
Birth Date: 5
Birth Month: July
Birth Year: 1981
First Position: SP
Second Position: NONE
Throws: Right
Bats: Right
Batter Ditty: Rock
Jersey Number: 27
Face: 4
Hair Color: 6
Hair Style: 5
Facial Hair: 7
Bat Color: 1
Fielding Glove: 3

Range: 60
Throwing Strength: 65
Throwing Accuracy: 40
Pitcher Delivery: Style 8?
Stamina: 42
Pickoff: 65
Fastball Control: 50
Fastball Velocity: 93
Pitch 2: Slider
Movement: 75
Control: 53
Velocity: 84
Pitch 3: Changeup
Movement: 65
Control: 65
Velocity 72
Pitch 4: Knucklecurve
Movement: 55
Control: 53
Velocity: 68
Outlook: Crain is a great overall athelte. He was drafted by the twins to be a
RP/SS, but the Twins moved him to the mound indefinatly. He has been lighting
in up minor league ball. His fastball can reach 95 and he has good control on
it too. His slider is hard and has good movement. He can consistantly throw
both for strikes. He also has his changeup and knucklecurve but they are subpar
and wont be used as a closer. With only Joe Nathan in front of him there is a
good chance he will see his way into the majors this year as the Twins' closer.

Milwaukee Brewers (Team AAA) - Prince Fielder
EDIT: Create Him. He's pretty heavy (250 at 6'0) and its hard to find someone
that fits his height and weight.
First Name: Prince
Last Name: Fielder
Birth Date: 9
Birth Month: May
Birth Year: 1984
First Position: 1B
Second Position: UTIL
Throws: RIGHT
Bats: LEFT
Batter Ditty: Hip Hop
Jersey Number: 28
Face: 14
Hair Color: 1
Hair Style: 3
Facial Hair: 1
Upper Body: 5 Bars
Lower Body: 9 Bars
Biceps: 5 Bars
Thighs: 6 Bars
Bat Color 4
Fielding Glove: 2
Elbow Gaurd: None
Shin Gaurd: None
Wrist Band: None
Socks: Low
Catcher Mask: 1
Batting Gloves: On
Batting Stance: Crouched
Contact vs RHP: 74
Contact vs LHP: 63
Power vs RHP: 73
Power vs LHP: 65
Bunting: 20
Plate Discipline: 75
Durability: 65
Speed: 40
Stealing Tendency: 20
Baserunning Ability: 30
Fielding: 65
Range: 60
Throwing Strength: 55
Throwing Accuracy: 40
Outlook: Prince Fielder's power bat and plate discipline are in his genes. He
is the son of Cecil Fielder. But he actually is a little faster than his
father, and may be able to play some corner outfield if he loses his weight. He
really needs to watch his weight, as he is at time high into the 250s. He may
make his way upto the Brewers this season if he can stay in shape.

Chicago White Sox (Team AAA) - Jeremy Reed
Edit: Matt Jones, CF. Fits him nicely.
First Name: Jeremy
Last Name: Reed
Birth Date: 5
Birth Month: June
Birth Year: 1981
First Position: CF (could go either way, plays both in the minors)
Second Position: RF
Throws: LEFT
Bats: LEFT
Batter Ditty: Rock
Jersey Number: 8
Face: 4
Hair Color: 7
Hair Style: 3
Facial Hair: 1
Bat Color: 1

Elbow Gaurd: NONE
Shin Gaurd: NONE
Wrist Band: NONE
Socks: Low
Catcher Mask: 1
Batting Gloves: On
Batting Stance: Upright
Contact vs RHP: 72
Contact vs LHP: 60
Power vs RHP: 50
Power vs LHP: 46
Bunting: 65
Plate Discipline: 80
Durability: 75
Speed: 82
Stealing Tendency: 85
Baserunning Ability: 75
Fielding: 70
Range: 65
Throwing Strength: 65
Throwing Accuracy: 75
Outlook: He could be the CF of the future for Chicago. He has only slightly
above average speed but is very aggressive on the bases. Hits good against
righties but is weak against lefties (.352 v .256 in the minors). He doesnt
have much power so dont expect a lot of HRs but he has the speed off the hit to
hit a lot of doubles.
