Tabata on top

Postby theclefe » Thu Jul 06, 2006 4:09 am

Baseball Notebook just released their mid-season rookie analysis and topping the list is 18-year-old Jose Tabata, NYY OF, as the player with the highest ceiling. He beat out Billy Butler and Delmon Young.

Thoughts?

He may be good but the fact that he's in NY has added fuel to the hype machine....I'd still rank them:

1.D Young
2.Butler

(Both could be up by Sept which is more reason I like them now..and I like their ceilings more)

3. Tabata


This is based on what I'm reading every night (articles & box scores etc...)

Never know tho but the thing is....it's really early and he's really young.

The same baseball notebook that had his lists criticized and was "threatened" so he said he was giving up doing rankings? Ah yes, I don't put much if any care into what he says.

Don't get me wrong I really like Tabata, but 200+ AB's is not enough to put him that high.

Did the top three go Tabata, Butler, and Young, or are you just using Butler and Young as references?

It is an E-book he puts out. I don't think they have posted the top folks on the free portion yet.

Correct. Tabata, Butler, Young, then Barton and Denker.
