I just extended you, Adam. Thanks for renewing!

Colin still hasn't been able to figure out why some people aren't getting immediate access when they pay. Just shoot a message to me or Peter (or both) or post here and we'll take care of it.

It's up! And it's good! We hope. In any case the March 24 update is posted for Subscribers in the Downloads area. You'll find the Windows software, the Excel file, hitter and pitcher text files, and the updated PWO files for the software, posted there.

This week's update has the Grichuk-Tapia blockbuster, Carlos Correa and Travor Story with teams, update projections from me and updated prices from me (5x5) and Alex (4x4). This week you'll also find the Tout Wars AL and NL roto auction prices right beside the LABR auction prices for each player.

I pointed out earlier today that the Minor League Analyst gives Julio Rodriguez a grade of 9B, Bobby Witt Jr. a grade of 10D.

Here's how the Analyst explains the grades.


10. Hall of Fame

9. Elite player

8. Solid regular

7. Average regular

6. Platoon player

Probability rating

A. 90% probability of reaching potential

B. 70% probability of reaching potential

C. 50% probability of reaching potential

D. 30% probability of reaching potential

E. 10% probability of reaching potential

In Thursday's update I added the Analyst's grades in Quick Memo for each of Keith Law's top 100 prospects. When you sort all hitters and pitchers by PR3 descending, you get Keith's top 100 all bunched together with grades from another source next to each one. You can also list PR1 (Baseball America), PR2 (Baseball Prospectus and PR4 (Rotowire) to get multiple assessments of each prospect.

If you use the Excel worksheet instead of the software, all of these choices are already listed.

Using the software or the worksheet, a double sort of Team and Sort ascending gives complete, easy to read depth charts of all thirty teams, from the leadoff batter (hitters) and Opening Day stater (pitchers) to the lowliest NRI. Minor leaguers on the 40-man rosters and serious prospects who don't yet need to be protected get a Sort # of 40 (NRIs 45). When you've run this double sort, it's very apparent which teams are loaded with potential impact prospects; you just need to scan down Quick Memo to see the Analyst's grades for Keith Law's top 100.
