Trevor Plouffe and Reid Brignac have very similar MiLB numbers except for one outlier season by Brignac in '06. That doesn't scream fluke? I might not rank either of them in the top 250. Brignac is terrible and you brought him up as a justification to ranking Andrus high.
The problem that I have with Andrus is that he hasn't shown me anything with the bat to indicate that he'll hit better than .275/.325/.375/.705 in the majors. The strikeouts are a big concern since he mostly lacks power (unlike Stanton or even Gomez who I'm not sure will stick as an MLB regular). And my biggest concern is that Andrus doesn't hit well enough to stay in the lineup or bat higher than 9th.
