WTNY - Top 75

A very well composed justification of each player and rank. Miller seems high to me, but then again -- I'm just reporting what I've seen from other rankings -- no independent scouting being done here. And even though he has Marte, Felix and Delmon numbers 1-3, he doesn't seem to give them much of an endorsement (especially Marte whose write-up reads worse than #5's McPhearson).

Maybe he's just hedging his bets.

I'm not a fan of lists that have players in A ball listed over guys who dominated AA/AAA. I realize these youngsters have a higher ceiling but the odds that Danks, Adam Miller, Greg Miller or Olsen will be even close to as good as Blanton or Meyer are remote at best. But because they have potential they get ranked higher. I guess it's good for me because people in minor league drafts take these raw unproven players higher than they should be taken and even if they do pan out, you have to wait 2+ years for it to happen...

Eh, I'm posting as an after effect, by LBJ, what you forget is that while you take the short-term investment of Blanton with your minor league roster slot, what is Blanton's ceiling? A number 3 pitcher, at best, most likely a number 4. That's makes him a 4th or 5th line fantasy starter, at best. I'll take my investment of the Miller boys or Scott Olsen, all of which have the projectability of a solid 1 or 2. The difference between a 2 and 3 pitcher is tremendous. And the chance they succeed is far from remote at best.
It's easy, fun, and 100% safe!
