    I like how we're anointing a guy #1 overall over a year before his draft date (#TankForBeer!) despite the fact that history has proven time and time again that these early-career superstars almost never maintain #1 status by the time they are actually draft eligible, and players of Beer's mold (all bat, spotty at best defensive outlook) have very little history of actually going #1 overall.
    He reminds me of Schwarz for Florida...amazing Freshman year then faded some his sophomore year (not as much as faded as more not as amazing)
    See the ball and let it fly, Watch the ball soaring through the sky, Higher like a comet in the night air, Defying gravity is rare, Let the ball fly, Its homerun time!!!!!

    Its called a prediction. You act like not being a #2-3 pick is some sort of death-wish...as if being picked #4 overall means that you're trash. I said much more than bringing up his batting average (which was a throw-away comment); most notably that he's got little positional value and that that profile tends to be scrutinized heavily. If you want to go deeper, he's also a very average athlete.

    How about Anthony Rendon? Future HOF'er since his Freshman year, "lock to go #1", until he slips to #6 by his draft day. The vaunted offense of Rendon never fully materialized (he's been a very good hitter at times, although has shown inconsistency). Rendon is at least helped by the fact that he produces plus defensive value at 3B, which is something that Beer can't even hang onto. Rendon posted a .407 ISO in his Sophomore season.

    I think you probably read something completely different to what I actually wrote.

    He's actually 36 games in. Has a 20:40 k:bb ratio in about 160 PAs. thebaseballcube only updates college stats in batches once a month. Tough to judge college stats too much as there are ranges in parks by as much as 40 feet in the corners and you are sometimes playing programs which offer zero baseball scholarships, and some guys pad stats on weekday games against 4th starters of a weak program (not true of Beer at all, his HR's have been as follows Wright St (2), South Carolina (2), Michigan St., College of Charleston, Furman, Boston College, Virginia Tech and Florida St (2)).

    As I said I think he's the early best bet for best fantasy player in the draft and I would take him number 1 but it's not a lock thus far. My 2017 favourite bat (Jake Burger...who I will battle with Min for) has a Sophomore teammate Jeremy Eireman putting up some similar numbers to Jake. He'll be an interesting one to watch.

    I hope the Jays can draft Jake this year and Seth next year. I just really want a professional jersey with "Burger" and "Beer" on the back.
