    I am positive I've never remotely approached a similar positive outcome after the draft for a player.
    Updated comps with those ratings:

    10Don Truett1-6 (2104)21.719.420.5

    Pretty solid increase! Obviously depends on what others look like after scouting but that could make him the best pitcher in the draft. He'll still need some time for that SY to max but if you get there, 99 SY is pretty hard to screw up. Dunlap looks like both a very similar comp and a cautionary tale all at once - 5ish years of excellent starting pitching, but it took a decade to get there.

    Dunlap probably could of given positive xraa as an SP5 as early as 2092. those six seasons from 92-97 were a management decision more than developmental issues.

    Join the Remake Leagues! No Experience Necessary.

    Simple Rules:

    1. Stop recruiting new owners for your half dead crappy leagues. Your efforts would be better used looking for a stable league with owners who actually care about their teams. Winning the world series in a half unowned league is not worthy of your time.

    2. If you are trading an elite item like a no1 overall pick or a superstud player, then dont take the first offer you get. Advertise your availability to the league to maximize your return. Your trade partner is not going to protect you from underselling yourself.

    3. Quoted from a thread about Monopoly gameplay: "This strategy will end up killing you in the long run. You WANT to make deals. You WANT to be easy to do business with. If players get the impression that you're always going to ask for unreasonable demands, they'll trade with other players, leaving you out of those trades, meaning you get nothing of value while they benefit. Remember, your goal in a trade should not be to screw your trading partner, but to screw anyone who isn't your trading partner. Then people will catch on and realize that if they're not going to give you fair rates, they're going to be left out in the cold, which means that you shouldn't be dealing with people who play that way either."
