That's what I've noticed from all the independent studies of ranking success. It seems they are about middle of the pack when it comes to hitters, which makes sense because they tend to believe in veterans, while waiting for younger players to prove it, but project pitching pretty well.
I've recently purchased their draft software and I am very impressed. I like that I can override their projections and it will recalculate auction values/rankings. (Like Teixeria's .280+ BA) It sounds like they don't really factor in shifts in their xBA and will just go off the batted ball profile that comes up with BABIP, so it's important to adjust players who routinley see an overshift.
As more projection system are released the software will also include those, along with corresponding strength indexs (Tiers), rankings and auction values. Great product, can't wait to put it to work in the draft room.
