It's an interesting take on some of these players. I don't necessarily agree with him most of the time, but it's interesting nonetheless. And it's more in depth than most other minor league sites.

Thanks

Any idea why Chris Nelson, SS, Colorado might not be on this list?

Because, although his stats are impressive, they were gotten in a rookie league, a hitters league, and in Colorado, which brings down the actual value somewhat. Plus he only played 38 games last year, which makes it hard to judge his potential.

yea, he says somewhere in the Rickie Weeks review that he's not ranking this years draftees because of that... and i guess Weeks is a good example, after he sorta flopped last year

i dont always agree with his stuff either, but the write-ups are always big.. and he updates often and usually early. i remember back in september he was talking about Kinsler, Dan Meyer, Kyle Davies, Anthony Reyes, ect

Yeah, I did. And I'm an English teacher, if that depresses you any more. But in my defense, I really don't teach grammar because - as you can see - it's not my strong suit.

Regardless of the source, it is always good to see the top 2 players on a list in your organization. It makes me feel good about myself as a human.
