Project Prospect report on Josh Bell

The guys over at [Project Prospect http://www.projectprospect.com/] are somewhat controversial among prospect bloggers, but are at least usually pretty interesting.  In their firsthand AFL report, they mention some of the prospects who stood out to them, and guess who topped their list?

Most Impressive

Josh Bell has gained a lot of followers this year because of his bat. And while he has gotten some good marks for his defense, I wanted to see it for myself. The verdict: it's exceptional. Bell demonstrated an impressive arm as well as good footwork and agilily. I've seen him make plays to his right, effectively charge balls, and flash soft hands. I'm a big believer in Bell's bat, glove and understanding of the game -- interview coming soon.

At the time of the trade, the two major concerns about Bell were his glove and his batting against lefties. Now, it seems we may be looking at a plus defensive third baseman, and while AFL stats don't mean much, he's also clobbering left-handed pitching there.
