Kjerstad comes in at #99 on BA Top 100

Recommended Posts

Seems about right, order-wise. How many slots did he slide down for the standard oriole penalty?

Within 1-2 years, I believe Kjerstad will be a top 20 prospect. In a normal year, where he would have opened at Aberdeen and likely would have finished at Delmarva, he would have been considerably higher by the Fall list. But this seems fair for their way of ranking players for the moment, based on what they wrote about him pre-draft.

Not the people who have the Baltimore inferiority complex.  You know, being wedged between DC, Philly and NYC tends to leave a rather large chip on people's shoulders.

Anyway, Kjerstad fits at 99 from what I can tell.  Not sure how anyone could justify him being ranked significantly higher.

Is it hard typing when you're hanging from a cross?  I'm assuming so.

It’s pretty easy to justify it.  There really is very little that separates #40 and #100.

Fabgraphs had him ranked higher than most..I bet you they have him way higher in their top 100...other sites may as well.

These guys are all viewed differently in the eyes of different people.

Alright, where would you rank him if there's very little that separates 40 and 100?  I agree with you, fwiw.  But if it's easy to justify a higher ranking based on little that separates those numbers...then it's also easy to justify where he is, too.

Probably using voice recognition software.

If very little separates 40 and 100 than moving him up to 40 wouldn't constitute him being significantly higher.
