Perhaps because it is a pretty bad list. Some questionable inclusions and likely some questionable exclusions. I can name about 20 prospects that have yet to be ranked that deserve to be in the top 50.

Ditto, just thought it could create some discussion and maybe have a Cafè Top 50 Prospect List. If enough people were up for it, I'd manage it and put together a spreadsheet for everyone.

Agreed, but he has to be there, right? As does Price, Wieters, Snider, Heyward, Rasmus, Bumgarner, Maybin, Feliz, Porcello, and Alvarez.

Only problem is that I just named 11 players. Smoak also not on the list.
