No more Kato

Postby David » Wed Feb 14, 2018 6:24 pm



Pretty interesting...

KATOH’s lists have certainly been controversial. They have always looked radically different than more traditional examples of the genre and have featured plenty of obscure names. One of the reasons for this discrepancy is a byproduct of one major input KATOH ignores — that is, scouting-type information. But another reason is because KATOH has also included a type of player who’s frequently overlooked — the sort sometimes referred to (and occasionally dismissed) as a “performer.” And in my admittedly biased opinion, KATOH’s unconventional prospect crushes have panned out often enough to prove its usefulness.

The Cubs’ transaction list under Epstein and Hoyer reads like a work of fiction, a wish-fulfillment list composed in hindsight.

Sincerely, good for Chris Mitchell.

Also sincerely, KATOH was basically useless.

I thought this was going to be about Kato Kaelin quitting Twitter or getting booted off for something.

Fangraphs should hire Kato to rate prospects on a scale of "GARBAGE" to "FN SUCK."
