What did Goldstein do/say?

I think that question was in reference to how we feel about his prospect lists.

Ahh… I pay the most attention to Goldstein’s and Law’s prospect list when making my own draft list, Goldstein’s in particular.

I take all the 5 star guys on Kevin’s list with an ETA of the upcoming year and then take Law’s list and see who has the highest upside.

Prospects are such a crapshoot, that I’m really only interested in guys who have a high upside and will play soon.

There’s too many variable’s with guys who have high projections but are currently in A ball and won’t hit the majors for a couple of years.

I guess I don’t know what other opinions of Goldstein are, but I’ve had some pretty good luck with his work.
