Yeah, perhaps I should have mentioned that we decided to make him ineligible. He'll go in our MLB auction.

I am surprised Stewart was #1 over Hermida and Liriano. I thought Butler fell a little far as well.

Thanks for posting it. We are in the midst of our ML Draft, so it helps to see how other are valuing certain players.

Its nice that someone got Hermida 6th. It seems whoever drafted in the 6 slot easily had the best minor league draft in my estimation, though I would have gone with someone other than Cappellan in round 6 (still not a bad pick).

I'm guessing cause the commish didn't have the first pick and wanted a chance to take him. ;-)

player ranking

Postby oakiedragon » Sat Jan 21, 2006 8:17 am

I know im probably going to catch a lot of $@&! for this comment, but for some reason i really dont agree with the rankings where people have brandon wood so high. Both here and by the professionals. I know all about the season he had and also how it carried over into the AFL. But i really see a huge drop for him this season. Prior to this season he never hit more than 11 hr in a season. 5 his first and 11 in his second. Also he was never projected to have the power he showed in this past season. One thing that really worries me about him is his bb/k ratio. Its the one consistancy he has shown, he strikes out A LOT. His career bb/k ratio is 114/314. He has k'd 200 more times than he has walked thats a lotta fanning. He also struck out more this season than any season prior, which shows that he is just swinging for the fences and not perfecting his swing to make it in the bigs. Now in his favor he really broke out in a big way, and one of my friends played with him in high school and praised how hard he worked so there is hope, but i just dont agree with such high rankings based on one season. If we base this on one season, then why isnt sean gallagher ranked high or even ranked at all. Im sure most of you remember his streak this season. Im not saying that wood is not worthy of being listed, or even listed near the top, but i just feel that there are better more proven players that should be higher. He just reminds me of another angels player; Dallas McPherson. All swing and no eye which always causes problems in the bigs where players feed on weaknesses and players that either strike out or hit a home run just dont last long. And thats what im seeing right now. I know that he hit .321 this year but it wont last, i mean the prior season he hit .251 in 5 less ab, against lesser talent. So just hold your top overall prospect status on him until the real wood shows himself, which will be this season.
