The word I hate most for prospects

is "floor". This is the most ridicuous word ever. The "floor" for every prospect should be bust. 37% of top 10 baseball america position prospects, the safest prospects bust. When people say something like his "floor is .280 with 15 homers it drives me crazy, every prospect that is not a hitter and is not in the top 20 of baseball america's top 20 prospects is more likely to bust than to have an average major league career. I hate "ceiling" too, but players play worse than their "floors" much more often than they play better than their ceilings. 60% of Baseball America's top 10 pitchers bust too, so keep this especially in mind when using "floor" for pitchers.
