Matthew suggested that I fanshot this, so here we are. This is what I said in the other thread: "This is what I'm able to manage at the moment. Halman’s a tough topic for me because he embodied so much of the ups and downs of watching prospects and was one of the first ones I really, seriously followed." Over the past eight years or so, when I've been talking prospects with the people I know who are passionate about the subject, like JH, or marc w, or g_moneyball over at Mariner Central, or Churchill, even people I've met at USSM/LL events and fellow players (!), I think Halman's been the guy that has come up the most as a topic of discussion. That makes it all the more difficult to figure out what to say about it all.
