    ^^ Google Translate's version of one of the sentences:
    "The firm was headed by Angel Esco-bar, the talent hunt badge big tent"



    On the plus side, the last 16yr old twins we signed were named Xander and Jair.

    I occasionally check out The Scouting Book because of their unique ranking system. Theirs is a blend of the authors perspectives AND the top prospect sites. Right now it looks like they're primarily the authors' opinions while they await the 2013 lists from other sites.

    #14: Xander Bogaerts
    #44: Matt Barnes
    #88: Jackie Bradley, Jr.
    #106: Allen Webster
    #147: Blake Swihart
    #152: Anthony Ranaudo
    #167: Henry Owens
    #186: Jose Iglesias
    #199: Brandon Jacobs

    Mayo is beyond bad. 3/5 for Bogaerts power and Iglesias not only in top 100, but ahead of Trevor Story.

    Not a fan of that list either RST. Ranaudo very high and Cecchini not even in top 200? Pretty weird IMO.

    Why do they hate Brentz so much?

    I'd replace Iggy with Brentz or Cecchini

    I saw Law's rankings but I don't have insider so I can't see the justification for it. Could anyone with insider sum it up for me? Really caught me by surprise when I saw his list.

    ESPN's rankings (system rankings) were weighted heavily by the amount of major-league ready talent instead of ceiling. He thinks Bogaerts stays at SS, likes JBJ, and was impressed with Barnes and Owens last year. Doesn't seem down on too many of our top specs. I wouldn't worry about the rankings too much.

    Law said we have little/no big league ready talents.

    But he has the MFY at #10 when the system has even lower talents in A/AA ball than we do.
