Compiled Prospect Rankings

Postby Yoda » Tue Mar 14, 2006 11:52 pm

Every year I look forward to this list:

If it weren't for US Today writer Paul White who obviously mistook Delmon Young as Chris Young, he would have been the concensus #1 prospect.

No real surprises other than that.

Interesting. Thanks.

Although Paul White should be drummed out of the profession for ranking Anderson Hernandez above Delmon Young. Think he's just doing it for attention?

That list was based on value for this year, not future years. So take some rankings with a grain of salt.

Here is At the Plate's comment about it

JDM Rookie Report wrote: The Consensus 100 is posted. It is a compilation which includes rankings from 20 "Top" lists (a couple of them which focused solely on the 2006 season). Jeremy Hermida grabbed the top slot over Delmon Young, even though Young was the No. 1 choice on most of the charts (Young dropped to No. 2 because of a single list which ranked him pretty low because he wasn't given much chance of being in the lineup this season. Obviously, other calculations could be used to more precisely order the prospects but, for now, this seemed an easy to understand approach. There's one Top 100 of note yet to come (Jonathan Mayo at MLB.com).

The US1/US2 (USA Today) ranking of Delmon is not a mistake. First off, both of the links for US1 and US2 go to the same article (Lisa Winston) and not Paul Write.

Secondly, her list isn't even a top 100 prospects. It's a top 100 to make an impact in 2006..and while I'm not sure I would think Delmon is 47th overall (her list), who knows what TBay will do with the 18 outfielders they are already have.

How she ranked them

THE RANKINGS

Here's the 10th annual list of Sports Weekly's 100 Names You Need to Know: The next wave of players coming into the majors, who, in our view, could make the biggest impact during the 2006 season.

These aren't necessarily baseball's 100 best prospects. Many top prospects are too far down in the minor leagues to contribute in the majors this season. Others are stuck behind established major leaguers.

I'm applauding the ranking of Delmon as the #2. I really, really, really don't think he'll play much at all this season. Next season, you bet.

Yeah Delmon is 2nd only because of that one 47th ranking. Take it out and he'd be 1st.
