Goldstein's list looks. pretty good. He has a couple of guys lower than i do (Upton and Tulowitzski), but that is just nitpicking.

I think he also has Hughes, Bailey and Lincecum just slightly higher than I've seen them in other rankings.

Looking real quickly, a few stand out:

Humber WAY too high, as well as Morales. Brignac is a little high and so is Kershaw for this point in his career.

Dukes is far too low, and as thedude said, Tulowitzki and Upton and somewhat low.

Goldstein from the audio interview:

There are only two real lists in the industry, mine and Baseball America's...Everyone else just takes their list from what we do and put their own spin on it...

Ha. He's good, but that is quite the ego.

I like Bryan Smith, formerly of Baseball Analysts, now SI, as well.
