I came across the above post via John Sickels' recent Prospect Retrospective on Jeff Samardzija.
It is a cool snapshot in time which reveals how various minor leaguer players were once viewed. I won't give away any interesting tidbits other than to say that one surprising thing I learned was that Jake Arrieta once played In the Olympics. Probably it was a surprise to me because I didn't follow baseball in the Olympics. (I don't even know what time of day the games were televised if they were televised at all; I mainly stick to evening programming.) Anyway, you can probably guess that Arrieta played in the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing, which was the last time the summer Olympics featured baseball. (The IOC rejected it for inclusion in the 2016 Olympics.) Other notable palyers on the U.S. team include Stephen Strasburg and the Cubs' very own Nate Schierholtz. The U.S. won Bronze while South Korea won Gold and Cuba took Silver. I found this to be an interesting slice of baseball history. Maybe you don't, but that's okay.
