Not that he isn't good and is a top prospect but there are others that I like more than him and he's always ahead of most all of them.
As soon as I finish putting my pitchers together on my spreadsheet I'll have to put together a top 100 or something of my own to compare.
Solid enough list though!
Thanks for the comments Jason. Do you have a particular reason that you don't like Lars, or is it just that you see the other 3 having better careers?
Well, Smoak, Yonder and LaPorta absolutely dominated college...and they did it in more than 1 year. LaPorta has carried it over pretty decently in his limited minor league time. Lars so far has been real nice but not outstanding, IMO. He's got a mediocore contact(even LaPorta has shown a better contact rate) rate and hasn't displayed overwhelming power, good but not overwhelming to where I have to have him at the top of most lists....don't get me wrong, I love Lars, there isn't much to not like with him but there are just others I'll go after first if I had a choice. Just personal opinion of course....
