Anyone remember this from March 2005?
Definiton: A player that costs you next to nothing on draft day, whom you draft in the final rounds- and in turn will play better than some of the costly, salary filling, higher round picks.
My prime example: Chase Utley over Jeff Kent. This guy projects to have better numbers than Kent. "The Phillies' No. 1 draft choice in 2000"...."after breaking into the big leagues in 2003 and increasing his playing time in 2004, Utley is penciled in to play regularly this season. When he was drafted, he was advertised as having Jeff Kent-like tools, and to this point, he's living up to those comparisons.
Utley, if played only against righties, will produce numbers better than Kent. Period. Guaranteed.
