I regard this as something you consider only within tiers as a final factor, really. In my original example, for instance, I have to consider Betancourt versus Cabrera. Both are young players with some upside and similar projections. But, their ultimate value is going to vary significantly based on batting order.

which will ultimately be based on how good they are/how good they play.

You need to watch more of the Orioles and Pirates, as I do.
