I havent really picked through the list completely but I'll throw out what seem to be obvious changes. I havent really been able to seriously work on my own top 100 as of yet. If youre doing this for fantasy you need to drop the very young players on your list. Players like Bruce, Tabata, McCutheon, etc arent top 2-3 round players because it should be 2+ years before any see quality ML time. This was a quick look but as I start working on my top 100, I'll know more.

Donal Veal needs to be higher
Sean West a bit higher
Tyler Clippard higher
Hunter Pence much higher
Dunstin Pedroia much lower
Jacob ellsbury lower
Deolis Guerra much lower
Reid Brignac Higher
Hayden Penn higher
Jay Bruce lower
Jose Tabata lower
Felix Pie HIGHER
Phil Humber higher
Jeff Clement Higher
Pelfrey higher

I have a huge problem with Ian Stewart being so low. Yes, he had a bad year and hasnt been that great the last year and a half but, to be listed that low I just don't agree with it. He still has the skills infact, I think he'll come around next year.

Move Chris Young up at least ten spots maybe more.


If you are look for other opinions try http://minorleagueball.com/

The folks other there are in the process of compiling a community prospect list.

Because of that I added a bunch of prospects that were called up this past season that were still under the limit. I realize this list is far from perfect, which is why I would greatly appreciate it if I could get any suggestions or corrections anyone might have for me.

If there is someone that knows a lot about the players near the lower end of the rankings I would really like to improve the accuracy in that area.

Well I accept the fact Garza is too high, but if you actually looked at the rankings CORRECTLY he's actually the #4 pitcher.
