    Thank you HokieRed. He looks pretty good.
    If you can't build a winning team with that core a fire-sale isn't the solution. Selling the franchise, moving them to Nashville and converting GABP into a used car lot is.

    lol. Yeah, I saw that too. Man, he has talent. I have seen a couple of times where these radar guns are screwing up. I like the videoes I have seen so far though. I see that even the mid round picks throw low 90s.

    I'm more saying this because Benihana and I have discussed this topic ad nauseum. Stubb's rank hasn't changed much in my mind because I was expecting this kind of surge at some point either this year or at the beginning of next year. So I'm pleased he's finally getting the recognition, but he should have never been found at the latter end of 20. I think your doing something wrong with your prospect evaluation when they vary so much every couple of months.
    Is this directed at me? If so, I'm not sure which variance you're talking about. For the first half of this year, I said that Stubbs was in the 10-15 range on my list. Obviously his second-half surge has lifted him on almost every list, on mine it lifted him to #7. I think there is nothing wrong with that. Any prospect list is going to contain some kind of combination of tools and results. You simply cannot ignore one for the other.
    Go BLUE!!!
