More scoresheet please! My scoresheet league is the main reason why I joined bp in the first place! I am relatively new to scoresheet, however. Do you find fielding to be nearly as important as hitting? I never really know how to gauge just how important a player's fielding is when drafting. Could Adam Dunn's fielding really hurt him in scoresheet(assuming he isn't DH'd) as much as it hurts his team in real life? Could Andrus' fielding really help as much? Are there any good resources for learning scoresheet nuances? If you know any little tricks about setting up bullpens, doing defensive replacements, etc, it would be great! The more scoresheet stuff, the merrier!

Thanks Kevin! So if Morrow ranks above Kyle Drabek on the Blue Jays list, would you consider him a top 15 prospect? Seems like a stretch.

Is Morrow really a change of scenery guy? He has had arm problems, and never been that good at the MLB level anyway. I get still being high on him, but ranking him over drabek seems ambitious. In 3 years morrow has less than 200 IP in the bigs in a friendlier hitting environment than the AL east...what exactly makes you so high on him?

Hey Will, I am sure readers would be willing to match your donations. Perhaps the BP megolith would be willing to start the movement to protect these youngsters instead of you just throwing up your hands in outrage.

Typing that into google and clicking \"search\" would have yielded you an answer with less keystrokes - and it would have been much faster! (he does bp radio)

I think some sort of mention as to how much a prospect\'s value comes from his ceiling, and how much comes from how likely it is that he will be a productive big leaguer(call it his \"safety\"). Since a lot of Ian Kennedy\'s prosect status was wrapped up in the fact that he was very likely to be a productive(if unspectacular) big leaguer, he might get a score like Ceiling: 4, Safety: 8. Evan Longoria might have gotten a ceiling: 10, safety: 10...Rick Porcello might have gotten a ceiling: 10, safety: 4...etc. Then we could readily see how heavily you are weighting having a huge ceiling vs. being an above average but unspectacular big leaguer.
