Eugne is right (Tim Anderson thread) but it's close.

I have just done preliminary hitting pricing.  I haven't nailed down batting the average formula yet, I'm at -$116 in average right now.  But, I think the prices are pretty close.  I have Mondesi at $28 between Benintendi and Stanton.  Seeing Peter's calculated price of $32 gives me comfort.

I think my relative order is comfortable.  Mondesi, Jonathan Villar, and Billy Hamilton are guys who stood out.  Steals can be a dangerous drug.

Our Wise Guy, Gene McCaffrey, unlike other star free agents, has been signed by the Athletic, but for us lucky ones he's shared his Wise Guy Baseball Guide that will now be fodder for his Athletic (and muscular and witty) writing. His take on perhaps this year's most polarizing hitter is spot on (whatever the hell that means):

Mondesi 
I had him
everywhere I could get him last year and died the death waiting for the Royals
to call him up. I understand the financial angle, but to leave your 2nd-best
hitter (at worst) in the minor leagues for months while the major league team is
playing .340 ball is a small crime against the integrity of the game, not to
mention a cheat to the paying customers. No doubt the Royals would invoke the
makeup defense and reply, "See, we were right. He needed that extra minor
league time." We will never know, but we will bear it in mind when tempted
to draft Royals' prospects in the future.

   
Mondesi is the new co-co-favorite to lead MLB in SBs, along with Trea
Turner and Jonathan Villar, so you can forget about anything resembling a
bargain.


It will be said many times this spring that
Not Raul is a no-profit player given his cost, and I'm sure these people mean
well. But there is untoppable profit - in the standings -in the guy who leads
the majors in SBs. And when he has 15-20 HR pop and bats at the top of the
order, he is worth his likely cost. This guy strikes out too much and he
doesn't walk, yeah, and he still smacks the ball with authority and runs like
hell. I can't see him hitting under .270.

Roster Resource has him leading off. I'd bat him fifth or sixth and still have him run every chance.

18 game stretch in September facing Twins, White Sox, Tigers, Pirates, and Reds(and likely facing several September callups) .325/.337/.625 .385 BABIP 10-13 steals 2/23 BB/K 84PA

Two picks, two pans int the Guide.

Pianowski's pick: "If you can see the category juice, don't worry about the batting average too much... He was a needle-moving player in the second half."

Podhorzer's pan: "Reasons for excitement are obvious... but his offense could quickly crater, ultimately pushing him into a utility role."

Thanks for the news about Raul Sr. I remember him as a terrific hitter who learned as he went along to take more walks (or earned more walk respect, might be another interpretation). But I also remember him as a nightclub fixture who showed up regularly on the "society" pages because of his merengue moves. A joyful soul, alas, apparently not averse to corruption.

Before I delete Dad's numbers, I thought I'd leave both on the same page for a day or two.
