    Yeah, I honestly prefer Sickels to BA.

    Mateo wasn't drafted.

    Just read that Some scouts believe Cecchini can hit up to 10 HRs if he just cleans up his swing.

    Wheeler is a Classic #2 starter.

    Since I am an original subscriber to BA in its first year, 1981, as All-American Baseball News, I prefer them -- although I don't necessarily agree with some of the writers' opinions from time to time. On occasion I write to Jim Callis in particular, and try to persuade him otherwise.

    However, the one thing BA probably has better than any resource are connections they have established during the last 30 years -- with scouts, GMs, agents, collegiate coaches, players, etc. They probably are on a first-name basis with more talent evaluators than any other individual or entity.

    The drawback to this is that because they have so many resources from which to draw, sometimes I think they go with the consensus opinion, and the consensus certainly is not always correct. Sometimes it is the one dissenting opinion that is correct instead, but which one? Always hard to know or say.
    "The 90 wins is about challenge. It's about changing the conversation. It's about framing questions for ourselves as to how we get there. So I stand by the notion that we need to get better, and in doing so we need to set concrete goals for ourselves so that we have sort of specific conversations among ourselves about how we're going to get there." -- Mr. Alderson

    No, but BA liked him all these years before even signing with the Mets so he had reputation.

    He needs to get stronger too. He's got a nice upside with great make-up.

    Wheeler is a lock for top 100, Cecchini and Nimmo have a chance for the top 100.

    I'd put Flores above Nimmo and Gavin. He is more proven
