    I think Steamer does. Not 100% sure on that though.

    3 of the shrewdest owners in this league have already inquired on him down low. I won't name names. I'll probably hold him just because I have so little invested in him and the payoff is substantial. He has very little trade value at the moment. I don't always talk guys up with the intention of trading them, sometimes I'm just a fan. He can marry a .200 ISO with elite BB% and ~40 SB. He's kinda like Chris Carter but trade some HR for SB and give him CF eligibility. I think his counting stats can look like peak Carlos Gomez.

    Let's change the topic and talk about Top 50 prospect Francisco Mejia.

    Best C prospect in the game.

    But, how much are catching prospects even worth? Might be less bankable than arms.

    I can't believe the lack of love Min is getting for his post. Has DD jumped the shark?

    Did you learn nothing from Gary Sanchez? C prospects that pan out are the Holy Grail. Most sites have Alfaro above Mejia, but I'm with you.

    Yuck, how can anyone like Alfaro more? Seems objectively wrong

    I'd never seen Poltergeist until the other week and when her name came up in the intro credits it was a bit of a trip.

    He has an incredible arm and plus power. His approach is... questionable. However, he has been an above average hitter at every level. Scouts also routinely say that his raw power is better than he's shown in games. Actually his profile is a lot like Sanchez before he broke out.

    Alfaro AA line (167 games) - .273/.324/.449
    Sanchez AA line (191 games) - .265/.335/.424

    Catcher development is non-linear, as they say. You can't teach tools tho.

    I was just going to make that comparison, also prospect fatigue with catcher prospects probably gets even more pronounced.

    I think it's more the fact that we don't want to admit that Spanky is most likely a murderer.

    I just assumed he was going to carry a .358 ISO for his entire career.

    It honestly cracks me up how many people are saying his floor is 25 dingers, he could easily drop a sophomore turd.

    Even so, catcher is a fantasy wasteland and as a dynasty asset, you'd probably want him over every catcher except Posey.

    The projections do give me mega-wood, in fairness.

    TCA let's make a trade, you're probably bored of Bumgarner by now.

    Velocity loss, oooOoooOooOooh!
