    So what would one in the top 5 plus eight more guys be? Most are back end 100 guys though.

    Also Tim Anderson, Carson Fulmer, Dillon Tate, Jorge Mateo, Nick Williams, and Mark Zagunis

    I can't imagine that more than 1-2 teams have a better farm.

    Otani would surely be #1 if he was applicable.

    BTS probably does have the best farm right now.

    Once a few more lists come out I'll do the obligatory composite rankings of the lists and 'rank' the farms.

    Unlike LOD, I'm actually pretty good in this league.

    91. Stephen Gonsalves, LHP (MIN)
    64. Ariel Jurado, RHP (TEX)
    33. Kevin Newman, SS (PIT)
    24. Manuel Margot, OF (SD)
    22. Blake Rutherford, OF (NYY)
    16. Mitch Keller, RHP (PIT)
    12. Eloy Jimenez, OF (CHC)

    Of course, my issue has never really been acquiring prospects. It's that I never hold on to guys long enough for them to pay off and instead mostly just squander them left and right on lousy returns.

    Yeah I was ignoring your unlisted guys. A few of them are basically top 100 talents, obviously.

    Yahoo was generous and let Schwarber keep C. That's a game changer.

    Funny that my highest one on the list has among the worst trade value. I think I have to move an asset to fit Carson Kelly though (this report has me sold).

    Aaron (Durham NC): If his defensive skill allows him to develop offensively in the Majors (as Yadier Molina did), what is Carson Kelly's offensive ceiling? Since he was drafted for his power potential, his latent power potential from the catcher's position, combined with the plate discipline skills he's demonstrated, has always excited me.

    Derrick Goold: Itís fair, I think, to actually compare the two offensively with one caveat. Molina was always a contact guy, and that contact (i.e., lack of strikeouts) portended a good ability to hit for average eventually in the majors. He did that. Kelly has less of a swing for average and more of a swing for flashes of power. Otherwise you could see a parallel in how their offense translates over time. Molina with the higher average, Kelly with the higher chance of power.
    So available in trade is Joe Panik or Tyler Thornburg. Could move either moving way up in the waiver draft or a 2 for 1 deal.

    Swihart kept his C too. I'm not sure if even that is enough to give him keeper value but maybe... I don't have a catcher, the bar is low, he's still quite young....

    I've seen his name (stupidly) high one some Dynasty catcher rankings this offseason. Some people seem to expect him to catch in Boston and pass both Leon and Vazquez, soon. I dunno.

    Well geez... Looks like he's a catcher again and has a shot according to the good people of Massachussetts.

    This begs the question of what the hell they were thinking with that move to the OF.
