    Even in 70 innings it was hard not to love Harvey's upside.

    The pitches and the makeup are there.

    I am really surprised they had Kimbrel so low though.

    Nice.

    I really like Harvey. I was preaching to my parents that he would be a fantastic pitcher with fantastic stuff. My dad thought I was crazy but hopped on the bandwagon after his first start.

    Can't wait to see this surplus of talent come up, it's gonna put some fans in seats.

    I'm also surprised Kimbrel doesn't have a better ranking. Nice to see Harvey on the list.

    Harvey blew hitters away with regularity.

    This is a pretty weird list.

    Kershaw, arguably the best pitcher in the game, #6? Kimbrel, arguably the best reliever in the game, #23?

    Value-wise, this is correct in terms of control. I disagree with Heyward over Stanton though.

    I don't get Heyward at #3. That sounds awfully high to me.

    Yeah I'll take Giancarlo everyday and twice on Sunday over Heyward.

    It's a weird list like Metsfanatic mentioned.

    He has have the most dominant reliever in the game at #23

    Maybe because, he's a reliever.

    In his prime, where would you list Mariano Rivera on an "All MLB' list?

    I think Kimbrel has earned that comparison. He's been the definition of dominant.

    No he hasn't. He needs more years of success.

    Kimbrel is fantastic, but he's still just a reliever that pitches one inning a game. I think his ranking is a little generous to be honest.

    But you were the one who said he could potentially be better than Rivera.

    I know he is only a closer but i mean he was the most dominant closer in the game last year and has the type of ability to be that for the next 5 years or so at his age.

    Last season was a legendary season for Kimbrel but Rivera has had great success for a longer period of time.

    I'll take an everyday player or starter over a reliever any day.
