If the results were 100% reliant on Rule 4 results, I might agree. My theory is that increasingly, successful teams will be relying on IFA acquisitions and adroit, opportunistic active management of player assets, especially trade market decisions. Right now, about 40% of our roster regards English as a second language.
I just read somewhere that BA had moved both Balazovic and Larnach into its Top 100. A big if right now, but if Lewis, Kirilloff, and Graterol regain their status, the system isn't overrated if one accepts FanGraph's current #7 ranking, for example.
I agree. I was simply responding to a poster saying the 2017 class doesn't look good.
