Backslashes are often used as escape characters in programming, so their editing software might be stripping it automatically. I wonder if it works if you escape it. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Sorry, I was meaning in which tiers would they be ranked in this class? Still somewhere in the 30s?

Speaking of Devers, Jimenez, and Torres, where would they fall in this list?

He was traded to the Diamondbacks for Martin Prado.

He didn't completely avoid the Giants and Padres, as the Diamondbacks play a combined 19 games in San Francisco and San Diego next year. Still much better than 80+, though.

Both Buxton and Correa have yet to significantly hit anything over .220 above AA, too.

Nice writeup. I think you meant Michael Feliz instead of Michael Felix in the "Others" section. But more importantly, who has the better mustache: Hunter Harvey or Nick Kingham?

Should the Dodgers Must-See Affiliate be Rancho Cucamonga instead of Chattanooga? Urias and Seager aren't expected to start in Double-A, are they?

From Twitter yesterday: "Verlander has three elite pitches; Scherzer and Kershaw show two 8s and a 7. Its uncommon but they exist" https://twitter.com/ProfessorParks/status/436593791047589888

While Reyes technically signed as an international free agent out of the Dominican Republic, he spent most of his life in the US. Do you still view him as an international free agent?

I really hope Gleyber pulls an Ichiro and requests to be known simply as "Gleyber". I would buy that shirsey in a heartbeat. In fact, I might go custom order one anyways.

Bret, From a fantasy perspective, what are your thoughts on Reydel Medina? It sounds like he might have more impact potential than most of the players in the top 10. Is he worth taking a flier on?

The BP 101 was released a week ago, so... 8. Walker (OFP: 7) 9. Bradley (OFP: 7) 11. Syndergaard 13. Giolito 15. Bundy (OFP: 7) 16. Gray (OFP: High 7) 19. Taillon 22. Stephenson (OFP: 7)

You know it's a rough system when the top prospect has a High 4 realistic role.

I'm surprised to see Phillip Ervin ranked almost 30 spots higher than Austin Meadows considering their relatively similar profiles. I always thought Meadows would rate higher, with louder tools and more projection. Any insight into what caused the separation?

Jason, what are main reasons why you'd take the Twins ahead of the Cubs? Is it the Twins' depth, a better balance of hitting and pitching, or just a toss up? Would you change your mind if you were to rank them again today?

That's quite a cast of participants. I'm curious to see how some of the non fantasy focused owners draft.

Bret, When you said you'd take Hedges seventh or eighth for fantasy purposes, does that mean seventh or eighth out of Padres prospects, seventh or eighth out of all minor league catching prospects, or possibly both? Originally I thought you were talking about only Padres prospects, because at first glance it seems low to rank him as the 7th best fantasy catching prospect. On second thought though, I assume Hedges would rank below guys like Alfaro, d'Arnaud, Sanchez, Pinto, and maybe Swihart and McGuire for fantasy purposes, so maybe that's not too low afterall. Thoughts?

I have a feeling a lot of the Professor's creative writing assignments in elementary school had the words "See me after class" written at the top.

How close are Tim Anderson and JP Crawford and how do they compare? I always mentally group them together, since they're prep shortstops with similar builds and were drafted back to back.

I agree. I'm not sure where you'd draw the line, but there are plenty of short season guys that are available in most leagues that are difficult to project where they would fit on this list. Along with those you mentioned, guys like Lewis Thorpe, Alex Reyes, and Francisco Mejia all seem like they should fit somewhere on this list, but I'm not sure where.

A lot of people seem to be split on Austin Meadows. Some say his best tool is his speed, while others consider him more of a Jay Bruce type power-hitting corner outfielder. What are your thoughts on him?

 
tonynelson19

So basically you could slot him anywhere after the top 7 (Tanaka, Abreu, Appel, Gray, Bryant, Stewart, Frazier)?

It might be unfair at this point, but Tapia sounds a lot like a young Taveras, no?

Hideo Nomo with a 10 player limit? Todd Jones without a limit?

Bret, You say Tapia could be worth a reasonably high pick alongside 2013 draftees, but how high? Top 20? Top 10? Where would you slot him amongst some of the preps, like Frazier, Meadows, Stewart, Harvey, Crawford, and Smith?

Would Devers crack the top 10 of a lesser system (Angels? Brewers?) despite his lack of professional experience? Is it too soon to put an Overall Future Potential grade on him?

Cool. When are you going to be publishing your dynasty rankings of the draft prospects? I'm curious to see where Abreu would rank amongst that group, since I've read varying reports on him.

Bret, you mention a top 7 in Harvey's fantasy take. Who all is in that 7? My guess would be Bryant, Frazier, Gray, Appel, Stewart, Tanaka, and Abreu, or does Meadows, Smith, or Crawford sneak in there somewhere?

I could be wrong, but I don't think Cleveland's system is drastically better than Detroit's. Both have solid guys at the top (Castellanos, Lindor, Frazier), but I see a lot of role 4 players rounding out the top 10.

How close was Cheslor Cuthbert? Still like him?
