    Some weird grades in there. According to them Jo Adell has all the makings of a superstar and yet he's only ranked 46.

    Yeah you ppl did good. Corbin Burnes is on here too, and I turned that fat lefty into something. Still not sure who Gilbert Celestial is though.

    I kinda think an 80 hit on Vlad is too much. That's basically what like a .320 hitter throughout his prime? The discipline and walk rate should be elite, but I feel like he's not that calibre of pure hitter. Would love to be wrong, obviously. In my mind I'd project him as more along the lines of 60 hit 70-80 power with 80 plate discipline (if we graded that, which we probably should).

    I agree 80 might be aggressive, but by all accounts his bat control is superb, and currently the stats back that up. I think a 60 is far too low on the hit tool, conservatively he's 65-70 hit and 60-70 power, but the industry consensus and the stats do seem to point to 80/70 or 75/70 with maybe 80 raw being a realistic toolset for this kid.

    The hype on Vlad Jr. is out of this world.

    Only thing left for him to do is generate more flyballs with his swing which will lead to more Homers.

    It really is. Even though AA traded for Donaldson, signing Vlad Jr. might be the best move he ever made.

    The Top 10
    1. Vladimir Guerrero Jr., Blue Jays
    2. Nick Senzel, Reds
    3. Miguel Andujar, Yankees
    4. Michael Chavis, Red Sox
    5. Christian Arroyo, Rays
    6. Austin Riley, Braves
    7. Ryan Mountcastle, Orioles
    8. Colton Welker, Rockies
    9. Brian Anderson, Marlins
    10. Jake Burger, White Sox

    Top Tools

    Best Hitter: Guerrero (80)
    In his full-season debut, he hit .323/.425/.485 between two Class A stops at age 18, walking more than he struck out while finishing second in the Minor Leagues in on-base percentage. With his advanced feel for hitting, mature approach and exceptional hand-eye coordination, Guerrero should contend for batting titles on an annual basis. Senzel might be the second-best hitter in the Minors, but he takes a back seat to Guerrero.

    Best Power: Guerrero (65)
    Guerrero stroked 13 home runs and 43 extra-base hits as a teenager and his power will only continue to grow. He has a penchant for making hard contact, not to mention impressive bat speed and physical strength. His soon-to-be Hall of Famer father averaged 33 homers per full season in the big leagues, and Vladimir Jr. has the tools to do the same.

    Highest Ceiling: Guerrero
    Guerrero has the highest offensive ceiling of any prospect in baseball. He could be his dad with more selectivity at the plate or the next Miguel Cabrera, and the Blue Jays will be thrilled with either outcome.

    I wasn't the biggest fan of Alex Anthopoulos, but I will eternally be grateful for him going over the signing limit and getting Vlad Jr. That and trading for Donaldson are two of the greatest moves in franchise history.

    It is graded at 70?

    Yeah, never understand why these boring, low ceiling guys always seem to get into the first round. Moniak was probably one of the most boring 1-1 picks ever.

    If we are talking pure bat to ball skills, he couldn't possibly have better genes and from the reports, he's similar to his dad with respect to hitting trash pitches with authority. I don't think an 80 is out of the question.

    All this Guerrero hype is making me grateful that Shapiro and Atkins are actively hoarding future assets so when he comes up we have the assets and ammo to build a good team around him.
