    Yeah, it's basically the "to hell with scouts" list. It's useful to find potential sleepers, which I think is the point. Just like any other system, keep in mind its strengths and weaknesses and it can provide another useful viewpoint.

    Dinger is just stuck in the way where he thinks that if a top 100 isn't near identical to every other top 100, it's garbage. I mean, it makes sense for Kelly to be that high. He isn't sexy but there's a pretty high floor there and he's major league ready. KATOH isn't perfect but there are a lot of guys it catches that scouts ignore. A lot of scouts stat scout anyway. Has a lot changed with Bichette since he was drafted? He apparently still has an unscouty swing but now he's top 20 just because he put up great numbers. It's pretty rare that scouts are in on players who have good "tools" but haven't put up numbers and when they are, they're almost always wrong.

    Exactly the point. I wouldn't use it as on the same ranking algorithm as say Baseball America, but it's good at pointing out overlooked minor leaguers whom can prove to be valuable. IIRC big ones they hit on were Greg Bird and Tommy Pham.
