  1. I seriously don't know what planet you are on, buddy, with Story #2 and Herrera #5. You have them ahead of the likes of Chachin, Matzek and Dickerson?? For crying out loud, Dickerson hit 30+ HR this year. 3 in one game, twice. And you have Berrgren at #49 and Kandilas at #50...Did you pull those names out of a hat?

  2. Earth.
    I like Story and Herrera a lot. I like Chacin but he did lead the league in walks. Check Baseball America (the leading prospect ranking publication on all the planets) and see that Story is ahead of Matzed and Dickerson as well. Neither of those are in the top 10 there.
    I don't want you to agree. My goal isn't to show a consensus of prospects. My goal is to pick the best players out. Come back in a five years, but not a day sooner, and see if I'm still on another planet.

Catchers By Age

The best way to analyze prospects is using their age in relation to the level they are playing at. Without taking too much of the level into account to start, I'll just be looking at age. I use a players age based on the date that MLB uses to define whether a player will be a draft eligible sophomore, because much of my analysis originates with a players drafted year. If a player is 26.01 on that date, he falls into the 26 year old age category. The age won't always match what is listed on Baseball Reference or FanGraphs but that is how I do it. If I don't have a players birthdate, I use the age listed on Baseball Reference.

Catchers typically progress slower than players at most other positions. The average time for a  college catcher to make it to the majors is 4.15 years. The average for a high school catchers is 5.27 years. This time can be reduced if a player has a higher skill level. Elite players only take 3.04 years out of college and 4.09 out of high school.
