I completely love this series. I held back the suggestion this year that something like incredible MiL scouting reports done by BP be done for MLBers, and this is exactly what I imagined. Bravo.
One question on Donaldson. By measure of any of the better WAR/WARP's, he had one of the best seasons in MLB this year, and by his inclusion in your series, he's clearly being highlighted as a major factor in the series. By those measures, I would think he is currently more than a 5+/6 hit/power guy. My question is this: where in the scouting rubric, if anywhere, are you putting the walks/patience? I assume hit tool, but it would seem that this skill alone, which is where he draws a large amount of his value, would bump him up a full grade beyond 5+ in that department.
