USA Today's 100 Name you need to know

Postby Y`s Guy » Thu Feb 09, 2006 8:53 pm

Damned good list of higher level prospects that may end up on keeper lists for 2007.

The list came out yesterday, I think.

My personal fave targets will be...

Conor Jackson, Andy Marte with the bats and Zach Duke, Felix and Bobby Jenks from the hill.

Enjoy...

Delmon Young too low

Felix behind Duke :-P

Liriano should be 3rd on the pitcher list

Don't agree with a lot of the rankings but very interesting.

I don't know how anyone could rank Duke above Felix.

My apologies. I have a nephew named Anfernee, and I know how mad he gets when I call him Anthony. Almost as mad as I get when I think about the fact that my sister named him Anfernee.

These are not necessarily from the fantasy baseball point of view. We already have heard that Felix will be the fifth starter while it looks like Duke will clearly be higher in the rotation. And with Felix being so young, I wouldn' be so surprised if Duke has a batter season. Anyway, in these types of rankings, a position or two difference doesn't mean anything.

yeah, all the names are there alright, but the order needs some serious work.

That's interesting, those top 100 are basically the exact same 100 as the Sports Weekly listed. Does USA Today write the Sports Weekly?? Or do we have a highly touted magazine that has copied someone else's ideas giving them very little merit based on the fact that the only two sports they cover are football and baseball. Someone is getting paid for doing absolutely nothing if this is the case, it should be called the save your money because we are nowhere near experts "Cut and Paste Weekly."
