Ranking Chris Young

After voting him an A-, I was slightly surprised that the "B+" rating was winning rather easily. You guys are tough graders.

His lines from 2004/2005 (BA/OBP/SLG/HR/SB/BB/K/AB):

2004 (20 - Lo-A): 262/365/505/24/31/66/145/465
2005 (21 - AA): 277/377/545/26/32/70/129/466

From all accounts, he has has tremendous tools, and is nearly a John Sickels 7-skill guy. His ability to hit for BA seems to be his only (minor) weakness. He jumped to AA, improved his contact rate, improved his already excellent walk rate, hit for more power (.268 iso), and was extremely impressive stealing bases and playing defense.

I'd like to see some comments on why he is a B+, and who is an example of an A- that is close to him for reference.
