The thing is they should take more into account besides stats IMO. It really should be more balanced to me. Also it's funny how everyone talks about Weeks last year and never says he was hurt during, though it was talked about and if you know about prospects...you should defiantly know about it. Oh yeah and that one thing is humorous "and Barfield actually iis 3 months younger". I mean give me a break, how are they going to say 3 months is any type of advantage that should be noted.

That being said they are still a good source to read about prospects, but you shouldn't take any resource on prospects for the gospel truth.

I still think it's stupidity; I take a lot of risks, usually. VMart was my replacement for Mauer when he went down.

This year, I'm thinking Jeremy Reed is a breakout; but I live in a town just north of Seattle, so I never draft Mariners.


In my league, both Beltre and V-Mart were picked up by someone in last place a few weeks into the season. Now they are 2 of his 8 keepers. One of the reasons why you can't fall in love with your last few picks, in case if you have to drop them real quick to pick up someone who looks like they will emerge into a star.
