I realize not everyone here has a Baseball Prospectus subscription, but if only for Nate Silver and Will Carroll, you should get one. Hell, you should pony up for either one of them.
Today, Nate takes on righty pitching prospects. Yovani Gallardo ranks fourth overall--that's behind Daisuke Matsuzaka, Tim Lincecum, and Philip Hughes. That's it. Matsuzaka is a special case, and Lincecum merits a couple of paragraphs from Nate because of the very limited sample thus far. However you slice it, the stats like Yo just as much as the scouts do.
More so, in fact. You may note that Homer Bailey isn't among those who rank higher. He's down at #7, behind--get this!--Will Inman. The Brewers only have two guys among the top 66 (compare that to the Devil Rays, who seem to have about half all by themselves), but both in the top six. Wow. Here's what Nate has to say about Inman:
Really interesting stuff, as always. And I would say that even if the system didn't like Gallardo and Inman so much.
