Take out Lincecum and replace him with either Erbe or Inman and thats my list.

Baseball America's 2006 Top 100 Prospect list note:
Our 17th Annual Top 100 Prospects list is based on each player's long-term major league value, a combination of his upside and his likelyhood of reaching that ceiling.


This is what you are going to get out of most prospect lists. If you were to go by ceiling, you'd get a top 10 list with guys like Mark Rogers, Clayton Kershaw, and Jacob McGee included. Is that really what you're after?


NatsFan10,

I'd go by the BA definition above unless mentioned otherwise. That's the most commonly used definition for a prospect.

Ranking by highest ceiling is not the best. There are ALOT of guys with high ceilings because they can throw 100 mph or have a huge hook or whatever, but it doesn't mean that they are a good pitcher or can locate their stuff. Best way to rank is just what Savage posted.

That's what I assumed he was talking about, and that's what I based my rankings on.

Let's see some more lists guys....
