    Brennen Davis - my leaguemates are petrified of his contact issues. I have him (for now), so I’m curious why he’s still high for you. Didn’t seem to fall much.
    Thanx as always for the response, Sharky.

    Scouts seem to love Wood and his stats are very impressive as an age-appropriate 20-year old. Double-plus power, slightly above average speed and surprisingly good plate discipline for a player so tall. Looks to be an elite prospect in both real baseball and roto.

    Tovar is guy that I think I had too high before. He's been very impressive and highly regarded but his real value seems to be higher than his roto value. I think I was thinking he would be a candidate for SBs but BA indicates his speed is only around average. A lot of his value apparently is in his defense. Might be an elite real prospect but maybe not so for roto. Where I have him now seems more appropriate.

    Ruiz is a big SB candidate but I'm surprised that he isnt more highly regarded. He's not even in the top 100 at all for BA, MLB or FG. My dropping him down a bit is mainly a deference to the industry scouts. I'm actually going against the scouts a good deal by keeping him as high as he is.

    Davis had an absolute miserable year but industry sources are still high on him. He had multiple injury problems which perhaps explains the poor season. I'm keeping him ranked relatively high for now in deference to the scouts.

    Any thoughts on Mastaka Yoshida? He's posting and says he's interested in the Phillies (as a big Harper fan). I don't think the phillies have a place for him as it sounds like he's another below average corner OF, but does the offense make moving things around worth it?

    Thanx for the response, heyelander.

    And thanx for informing about Yoshida. He's been on my list for a while, as he's one of the best hitters in Japan, but this is the first I've heard that he wants to come to MLB. If indeed he is posted, he'll be added to the top 150. Not sure exactly where he'll rank but it would probably be higher than Senga, who's currently at #69. Probably in the 40-75 range. He has only about 6 years service time in Japan and you need 9 years to be eligible for free agency so I dont know whether his team would post him this early. But they just won the Japan Leagues title so maybe they figure they've already gotten their money's worth from him and would let him go.

    It's on the phillies sub-reddit, so it must be true, right?

    No speed, high average and OBP in Japan, with 20ish HR's. Not sure how that would translate to MLB, but I doubt it would be superstar level. Fangraphs gives him a 70 hit tool, 35/40 Game power and a 35+ FV.

    The Nolan Jones deal really surprised me. I get he's pretty much blocked in Cleveland, but Brito seems like a pretty thin return for him.
    I'm just here for the baseball.
