How can I honestly take a list serious when one of the people involved in making it says he must have a special bat if....? It comes off like the guy doesn't even know who he is. I think Bruce is the #1 prospect in baseball and would be very surprised if any list didn't have him at #1, but just wow.
Adam Miller was #14 last year. This year he pitches 65 innings, allows 68 hits, a .265 BAA and a 4.82 ERA in AAA and moves up 4 spots?!
Cameron Maybin at #3.... simply wow is all I can say.
Andrew McCutchen at #8? I like the kid and all, but no way is he this high.
I agree. I understand that we need scouting to compliment statistical analysis, but it seems that this list was put together with TOTAL DISREGARD to statistical analysis...
"On-base percentage is great if you can score runs and do something with that on-base percentage," Baker said. "Clogging up the bases isn't that great to me."
