Re: John Sickels' Rankings
I like the amount of lottery tickets though. We used to hardly have any (after almost only having them in the Jimbo era). I think the system is a little stronger than some may give it credit for. There is a decent drop off after the Top 6 guys, but the next group is pretty darn deep. Baseball America ranked Reynoso in their Top 10 with a scouting report incredibly similar to the one I had written on him and I had him ranked 25th AFTER trading Didi Gregorius.
4 Top 100 (probably Top 75) prospects, and a lot of depth is something that you can really work with, especially when that depth comes along with several lottery ticket types.
