I'm writing this week's @MLBPipeline  Inbox. Send your questions here or to piplelin @mlb .com. Thanks! #WearAMask 

Re @whitesox  list, Crochet vs Kelley, our @MLBDraft  rankings were based in part on questions about Crochet's health. Sox have none. Drafted him earlier, paid him more. LHP vs RHP. Deeper repertoire, better brk ball, great spin rates. Crochet is better. #Top100Prospects  #WearAMask 

The @MLBPipeline  Top 100 chat continues with @GoldenSombrero  taking the baton from @JonathanMayo . Mike has the next 30 minutes, and then I'll take your questions for half an hour. Please use the #Top100Prospects  hashtag. #WearAMask

I'm here now to wrap up the @MLBPipeline  #Top100Prospects  chat. Keep the questions coming and please use that hashtag. #WearAMask 

Thanks for all the great #Top100Prospects  questions. Stay safe & #WearAMask .

I'll talk @Orioles  & @MLBPipeline 's recently updated Top 100 Prospects list with Bob Haynie on @1057TheFan  in Baltimore at 12:30 pm ET.

I'll second @johnmanuelba 's thought & also use it as a reminder to BBWAA members voting on the Spink Award: Allan Simpson deserves your vote. He's the father of prospects & draft coverage. #WearAMask

Greene gets $7.23 mil from @Reds . Slot was $7,193,200 at No. 2. Highest bonus ever in bonus pool era. @MLBDraft 

My updated Top 10 farm systems: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10.

Terrible news for the Lockharts. My prayers are with them and they could use yours, too.

Touki Toussaint giveaway by @Dbacks  to @Braves  to dump $9.5 mil of Bronson Arroyo's salary is the most inexplicable trade I have ever seen.

This Kaminsky-for-Moss trade is a flat-out heist for the @Indians . Wow. @Cardinals 

3rd-rder Cole Wilcox signs with @Padres  for $3.3 million (slot 80 value = $767,800). Georgia RHP, fastball can reach 100 mph, power slider & fading changeup can flash plus. Sets @MLBDraft  3rd-rd bonus record, eclipsing $3 mil SD gave Hudson Head last year.
