Larsson is closer but McCabe is better overall.
People often interpret guys getting passed as a slight on the player who gets passed by. It's not. A guy can be a very solid prospect, and have a fantastic year - like McCabe - but get passed by a prospect who either played just as well if not better (ZG), was just acquired (Larsson), or just drafted.

Larsson ahead of McCabe has nothing to do with Jake, nor is it a slight on him or a knock on his play or how we view him as a prospect.

Many need to remember that notion.
