We determined last year that BABS is a terrific draft prep tool. However, the stats do not stabilize fast enough, nor generate large enough sample sizes for her to be used during the season. 
BABS: "In real terms, the difference between Didi Gregorius and Brandon Crawford (> 200 picks later) is about 5 HRs and maybe 10 points of batting average. That’s statistical noise." That's how we nailed Gregorius over Bogaerts last year.  (Members)
