BA is primarily about scouting and projection. As with any scouting, they tend to have their favorites despite statistical or production evidence to the contrary, etc etc.
They do generally seem to consider production, but they don't give it much credence in most cases until it is done in AA at least.
That post by trailboss is utterly ridiculous.
