    That's a fair argument. Daytime scares me too much.

    If I remember right, Law is REALLY high on Mason Williams, and also loves himself toolsy players, seems like he's willing to overlook non-big-league-readiness in the face of that. Williams, Austin, Sanchez, etc. all have very high ceilings and a bit more of a track record of success than Swihart.

    Also, from reading his chats, it's important to note that Law also really likes RDLR and pretty sure he ranked Middlebrooks on his Top 25 under 25 list.

    I don't think so. Like everyone, he probably favors major league ready talent, but Law has ranked very heavily on ceiling the last 4 or so years, I've heard him say that on podcasts many times. He used to balance in prospects he thought would be solid/good in the big leagues, but he started weighing heavily on ceiling because he thought that made a more exciting list. I'm pretty sure he ranks the obvious top 4 as

    1. Xander
    2/3. JBjr/Webster
    4. Barnes

    So it makes sense that he ranks us worse than anyone else does. The only one he probably sees with elite potential is Xander, the rest either have only good ceilings, or are far away. It's a little weird since we probably have 4 in his top 100, but the difference between 17 and 12 in these things really isn't that much. He probably has Xander very high, with JBjr, Webster, and Barnes 50'ish and later. Also on the Yankees, I know he absolutely loves Mason Williams and some of their other young players.

    It's a nice list, I always like BA and Callis the best. No real surprises, nice to see Lin that high. My only small gripes would be that Iglesias is too high and Buttrey too low.

    Is it wrong that I like 20 through 28 more than 10 through 18?

    It just means you like new toys that aren't dirty/broken/boring yet.

    No wonder I gave up on life when I found out Santa didn't exist.
