I get that. However, the site itself purports itself as a saber-heavy approach. You would think therefore that the site would have some sort of statistical analysis instead of being scout-only. (Or at least scout dominant.)
Any list is virtually impossible, but this one reeks of a lack of thought. No mention of why he made the decisions he made. Simply a list of prospects. You could do the same picking names out of a hat.
