    Sure. I will re-phrase my last comment.
  2. Deivi Garcia - RHP NYY

    Just because he's not a highly ranked prospect at the moment, it doesn't mean he hasn't received mainstream attention. He was already being mentioned last year on Fangraphs. He's had blurbs on razzball. He's been mentioned milb.com frequently. His name has been mentioned on many chats across the board. Not being high on prospect boards versus not getting mainstream attention doesn't necessarily coincide with one another. You have this misconception that this is the way I feel. That's not even the argument that's being debated here. You are completely morphing this discussion into a whole different topic. Your ranking of Garcia over Gore and ridiculous statement that you would not trade Garcia for Gore straight up is(based on your comparative analysis of their A ball statistics). And if that's been working for you, great. You said you had a success rate of over 50%, which would by a landslide make you one of the top baseball talent evaluators in the world. You should be running a baseball team my dude. Based on your comparative analysis, why not? It checks out. I really don't think you even know what that argument is anymore or ever did in the first place. And in conclusion... It's hard to argue with level of success. :bow:

    It was pretty clear but he already admitted he says a lot of crazy things. Now with that said, it's perfectly fine that he's higher on Garcia. In order to stay ahead of everyone else, it's important to be in on prospect before they start picking up mainstream attention... which Garcia was already getting towards the back end of last season. Using A ball numbers as the basis of his argument makes for a very weak one. As a prospect junkie yourself, I'm sure you can't agree with this next statement either. This is an asinine comment especially when you apply it to extremely young pitchers. Young pitchers are extremely volatile in general - especially at the lower levels. If you have semi decent command, you can typically excel with a fastball like his and a solid break pitch. It's not until you can consistently perform at a higher level where then you can cement your prospect status unless you already had a pedigree going in. With Garcia's size, he's going to have to continue to produce to be looked as among the games best prospects. That's just a given and more like a Captain Obvious type assessment. That's not his fault it's just how things have always been. Foul Line is great for this board. He's brought attention to many obscure prospects here that has benefited me as well. That doesn't change how flawed the basis for his argument is.

    I was writing a response to your previous comment as you responded with another. Unless you're already a highly regarded prospect, A ball numbers are typically be taken with a grain of salt. It seems you're in the wrong profession then my man. If you're better than 50%, you should be in someone's front office.
  5. Deivi Garcia - RHP NYY

    That's very simple. Projection and pedigree. You can self proclaim Deivi Garcia is the better of the two prospects and completely disregard the entire industry. You're looking at fools gold if you are strictly looking at numbers to make your evaluation. There's not a single publication out there that has Garcia currently as even a top 50 prospect. Yet, Gore, who's numbers pale in comparison is at the top of the majority of list. Guys like Garcia has to prove it over and over at every level because of his stature regardless of numbers. Nothing has changed there... that's just how things have always worked. I'd bet my house that there not a single GM out there, and less than 95% of knowledgeable fantasy players out there that would trade Gore straight up for Garcia. And just to be clear, I really really like Garcia.

    If he were Latin American he'd be a top 50 prospect.
  7. Deivi Garcia - RHP NYY

    I don't know man. I don't think even Yankee die hard fans would jump to that type of valuation. You got to look at more than just numbers. Will he be jumping up rankings list? Most definitely. Is he sniffing the top quarter of any prospect list? Very unlikely until he moves up to Double A and performs. His size will always be a knock against him.

    You have a shallow bench or something? He’s young and it’s a dynasty league. I don’t see the need to have to move him unless you get a really good offer. Not every young player comes up and becomes a Juan Soto right away. Patience. Selling low would not be a good idea.
  9. Wander Javier SS Twins

    He’s either confusing the two or playing into that long running joke on the BP chats. Looks like Dusty has invaded Fangraphs now.
  10. Juan Soto 2018 Outlook

    Not to take anything away from Soto but they were setting up for a double play.

    Flags fly forever. Do it.
  12. Victor Robles - OF WAS

    You forget they were dealing with a rash of injuries. Now they’re healthy. Different set of circumstances.
  13. Taylor Hearn SP Rangers

    Premium velocity from the left side and the trade accelerates his ETA. He's been pitching well of late and immediately becomes the Rangers top arm in their upper minors. I would probably slot him in between Crouse and Winn for now. He'll get a chance to start but carries high reliever risk. I'm really interested on who else they receive back. So far the return seems a bit light given how cheap Kela was and the amount of years of control, but supposedly the Rangers will be receiving another top 10 prospect from their farm. I guess it'll probably be Newman or Kramer if that's the case.
  14. Drop Knebel for a FA closer ? WHIR

    Drop Avisail Garcia and pick up Osuna.
