Agreed with a lot of this. Thanks for the info.

I would have included Mikolas at 85 overall. Everything went right. Got to 200 innings. Won 18. Out pitched his xFIP by .75. Really low swinging strike %. Contact makes him Babip vulnerable. Steamer projects ERA above 4.00. Even if you give him Steamer’s small uptick in Ks you could so easily be looking at a 4 ERA and 155 Ks. Don’t see him as having anywhere near the floor to put him inside the top 30 SPs where he’s going.
