Jeff Samardzija Still a Top 50 Prospect?

According to MLB.com Jeff Samardzijais is the #50 prospect in baseball. I like the guy and want him to succeed, but at what point does he stop being a prospect?

Anyone care to provide any insight?

The most interesting item he has on eBay is either a Notre Dame mini-helmet signed by him and Brady Quinn and “authenticated” by GAI or a 2007 Donruss Elite Extra Edition “Status Signatures” #23 serial numbered 2/10. (more…)

Goethals was arrested for assault and battery. (more…)
