    Seems a little high on Kershaw. Still the best pitcher when he's healthy, but he's spending more and more time on the DL for his back every season.

    $135M on Donaldson also seems a little low.

    In what universe is Manny Machado getting $40M+ more than Bryce Harper?

    To be fair I think the Rays' system is quite deep which somewhat explains his low ranking but there's no way he's not at least a 45 FV and appears below someone like Jose De Leon who can't stay on the mound.

    Also, it's April 16 and fangraphs is still missing the Blue Jays, the entire AL Central and the entire NL West. I understand that as a mostly one person job with McDaniels joining halfway it's hard, the lists are in-depth and it's free content, but it's a pretty big shitshow that they're just barely above halfway done with no end in sight. At this rate they won't even be done by the draft.

    They've taken so long that I don't really even click on most of them anymore. Big mistake not keeping up with BP and BA.

    By the time the Jays list comes out, Bichette's hit tool will be up to a 60 ffs.

    Nah according to Kiley McDaniels he's a current 30 with future 50 hit tool at best.

    Edit: I think I missed a joke.

    Bryce Harper shatters his bat on a swing and still hits the ball over the RF-CF fence in Citi Field. Barry Bonds-esque.

    And another Ranger bites the dust--Profar just got injured trying to get a double play--in a game the Rays already lost Matt Duffy to injury as well.

    How were the Reds the team that finally figured out that Luis Castillo has absurd stuff? The Marlins are such a failure of an organization.

    Only a little but yeah his change was carving them up. His fastball also had all kinds of downward movement so when he dropped the change at 10 mph less it was simply unfair.
