Guessing the O's get two As at the top in Machado and Bundy, followed by a B+ in Schoop.

I'll say Bobby Bundy is a B-. Hoes, Avery, Klein will be C+.

Surprised Schoop is not an A. I think he has skyrocketed as much as any player.

I believe there's an inherent bias with prospects. If Schoop had been a highly touted first round pick he probably would rate an A.

As usual, he nailed it for the most part. Hard to argue with anything he said, although Avery could probably be on there. But he is not the only one who is not fascinated with Aver (Keith Law said he was a 4th OF at most, fwiw)

While I think projections are okay, both Lino and Davis are too young to really throw them on the map that they are sure shot guys.

I think both Lino and Davis are a little too high and a full season needs to be seen against stiffer competition. Both have the skills, but I feel they are being hyped too much for at an early stage.
