I have yet to look at the 2006 class much, but I can say almost definitively that Snider is my #2 hitting prospect in the class (Longoria) and 4th or 5th overall (Longoria-Miller-Lincecum-Kershaw-Snider) prospect in the draft. Looking at my current "top 50," I'd say there's a solid chance that Snider could end up right around 50-60 on my list. My list places much more emphasis on offensive potential for hitters (read that as I don't give two ****s about defense when ranking my prospects), and when it comes to pitching, I value the power guys who K people over contact guys who get groundballs). But BA and other publications value defense and stuff like that, and they also really enjoy hype and "predictions" of players prior to the draft. Snider didn't really have much hype and really didn't seem to have future big-time bat potential, and that'll certainly be taken into account with their rankings.
I can tell that you haven't looked at the 2006 draft class much.
This is the fantasy baseball cafe.
What is ****s? What are you talking about?
So, basically you're admitting that you're wrong?
