The question is, does Tony agree that Kjerstad was the second best player in the 2020 draft?  If he does, than you go Kjerstad, if you don't, it's Rodriguez who has separated himself from Hall.  Mountcastle is too flawed and Henderson hasn't accomplished enough.

I'd be shocked if it wasn't Rutschman and Rodriguez. Mountcastle did well, but he doesn't have the ceiling of Hall and Rodriguez and maaaaybe not Kerstad? Henderson probably has a comparable ceiling to Mountcastle, though with less offense and more defense

Yeah, it's got to be Rutsch & Rod

Tony,  I’m already a paying member here, but I wish there were some serious way I could show my genuine gratitude for the work you do here, especially with prospects, and especially alone, without anyone to bounce ideas off of. I know that as much as you enjoy it, it does get tedious, but you have a set a deadline and you always accomplish it.

I’m grateful.

Whatever one thinks of his bat, MC’s defense is a big problem. Grey-Rod has TOR potential, is a rare player with rare gifts. I’m lousy at picking prospects, but I got this one right.

Thanks Phillip. I do bounce things off guys and even though I'm making the final list and calls this year, I still have people I talk to. Without a season I didn't really have the video work to do as much so it was less work. 

Still, appreciate the thoughts.

I think the trickiest question is where to place Kjerstad.   I cannot put him above Grayson without having played a MiL game.   But he’s got a credible argument for the no. 3 spot, even if you view him as more like the 7th/9th best talent in the draft rather than the 2nd best.

I disagree with much of this.  Kjerstad could be the second best pick (I doubt he was) and Rodriguez could still be better.  I also don’t think Mountcastle is too flawed.

His offensive flaws are less than I thought.    He’s not much of a defender.    He’s still got time to improve on his weaknesses.   I’m pretty happy with how he’s working out so far.

I'm a Mountcastle fan but between the defense and plate discipline I don't think you can rank him #2.

As far as Kjerstad, if you agree with what we were told about him than as a college position player I would rank him over a pitcher that hasn't pitched in advanced A ball yet.

 

I'm personally not that bullish on Kjerstad.
