Keith Law is still convinced Juan Soto sucks.

Apparently vaquero is a switch hitter now and we’re linked to a top 2022-2023 international, Anthony Gutierrez

Mlb.com upadsted their top 100 to include new draftees.  House clocks in at 60.  Ruiz is 19, cavalli 41, and gray 54.

They seem too high on some guys.  Mayer, Leiter, and lawler all ranked in the 9-13 range above guys like Bart, Noelvi Marte, and volpe.

How the freak is Leiter 12 and cavalli only 41.  Cavalli should be a top 15 guy for sure.

pedigree, and pedigree only.  Cavalli was off their radar at the start of the year, so to bump him up to 41 is a huge move in their mind.  They aren't going to admit to have been off that much in one season.  Winter, he may move up again to the 20s, especially if there are graduations like Gray.

Mlb.com international prospect rankings are out.  Vaquero is #2 and we’re also the favorites for the #6 guy.

Pedigree. And a better fastball. Better curveball. Much better command. And a better understanding of pitching overall.

Vaquero looks like a stud.

not saying he should be rated higher than Leiter.  Just saying that the 30 place difference in the top 100 is explained by writers not wanting to admit they were far off in their rating of Cavalli in the offseason. 

Next year, how many lists will identify him as the biggest mover up year to year?  Do you disagree that the consensus rating will likely be in the 20s next year?
