My first top 100

Postby shortsavage » Thu Aug 17, 2006 3:04 pm

Ok...this is my first top 100 ever. I know it still has a ton of kinks, as I just started making it this Tuesday. Hopefully, it will be pretty polished entering the 2007 season. So, feel free to rip it apart.

*Note* This is a top 100 prospects list designed for a dynasty league, so I haven't given defense and position scarcity as much weight as Baseball America would.

I liked comparing a few of our picks and seeing how close they are (like Lincecum and Ellsbury).

Going by your no minors guys who are in the majors, you shouldn't have Marte (19) listed.

Also you have Joel Guzman listed at 16 and 25.

One big difference between your top 49 and mine, you have three catchers Jarrod Saltalamacchia (31), Neil Walker (39), and Jeff Clement (48), while I have zero catchers in my top 63 (first is Chris Iannetta, 64). Again, I think holding onto anything but the most elite of elite catching prospects in your minors is a waste of time.

My league has 14 owners and carries 2 catchers, so catchers are a little more valuable than most leagues, but I still don't care for them. I don't have a catcher in my minors. All of mine are in my top 50.

Of course, these are just my opinions. I could probably be more picky but these are probably the biggest moves I would make.

Not too bad at all really!

I think Felix Pie is far too high on those lists for the #s he's been putting up.

Yeah, I agree somewhat. He flew through the minors up until this point. He is still just 21 yrs old in AAA ball, so thats still a good thing. He has been playing pretty well the last couple weeks as well.

Since August 1st

16 G
65 ABs
.323
3 HR
7 RBI (leadoff hitter)
16 Runs (1/gm)
7 2B
1 3B
11 XBH

He hasn't been great in AAA but he has turned it up a little recently. We shall see, he has alot of tools but he has hit a wall in AAA. He still has a couple years before he is even considered "old" for his level.
