  1. Where do you rank Allie, Cole, and Taillon among other recent draftees like Bauer, Hultzen, Bundy and a few (relatively) older guys like Moore, Miller and Cosart?

    1. Oh sheesh. Good question. I'll rank them in order, but usually when I rank prospects I like to talk in tiers than numbers. For example, over in baseball, I think the top 3 prospects are Trout, Moore, and then Harper (yes, I'm in the minority). However, I don't think Trout is 'better' than Moore at the same degree that I think Harper is 'better' than the #4 guy (who would be Jurickson Profar). It wouldn't really be close because I would put Trout, Moore, and Harper in one tier.

      Of the guys you've mentioned, without doing significant research I'd rank them in order.

      1. Moore
      2. Miller
      3. Taillon
      4. Bundy
      5. Cole
      6. Hultzen
      7. Bauer
      8. Cosart
      9. Allie

      Breaking them down into tiers I'd go with


      Miller, Taillon, Bundy, Cole

      Bauer, Hultzen
