The big three pitching prospects that we have looming down in the minors gives me an eerily familiar feeling. Haven’t we heard this before?  Does “Generation K” and the names of Jason Isringhausen, Bill Pulsipher and Paul Wilson ring a bell?  This was supposed to be our home grown trio of Superstars in the 90′s.
