One other thing about the left column. Is that new that they're flashing when they're new? I like that. ;-D

Solid rankings.

I think I'm most curious about BrewCrew's rankings. Any methodology that you had while you made your rankings that was different from everyone else's? You're surprising low on Rasmus and Longoria who are high-impact prospects that will make a more immediate impact this year as opposed to Snider and Moustakas, who are high-impact prospects but a couple of years away.

No love for Chris Davis? I think he should be at the bottom of the top 50, but that's the only gripe I have...besides Clay Buchholz being misspelled Clay Buccholz. :-b

I spelled Buchholz's name right ;-D

I want to point out that I put somewhat of a fantasy spin on my rankings. I probably wouldn't have ranked Soto and Towles on a regular prospect list and I boosted several players up some if I thought they'd make more of an immediate impact (e.g., Votto, Ellsbury, Kennedy). I'm also a bit surprised that there's not much Steve Pearce love. I know he's not ranked highly on most ranking lists because of his age, but the dude was MiLB player of the year and can flat out hit. I think he's going to be a much better major leaguer than many on these lists.

Nope. Been doing that on all Cafes for quite some time now. Was even a discussion about the length between blink intervals about 6 months or so ago.

Pay attention! }:-)


:-b ;-)

Just a note on that, since what was submitted is an image instead of actual coding, it's impossible for us to fix the spelling. I'm hoping someone with some free time will take the lists and code them the way they are supposed to be done. Will probably look much nicer that way too (colors and things). ;-D

I'd be willing to do the coding. I have to just use the coding format with other rankings posted on the site, correct? I'll try to have it in today.

I sent the code to Madison by PM around 5 PM EST yesterday but I'm not sure if that was the right thing to do. O:-)

I got it. ;-D

Not sure it's going to work and look right, but I hope to be able to plug it in and see soon (interface preview is currently under construction at the moment, which is why I don't know ;-) ).
