this is an interesting list that varies a lot from my top 100- obviously everyone has their own personal preference- just with the top 10 i think Tommy Hanson at pick 4 is way too high, and i'd take Snider and Heyward over Rasmus. Interesting though non the less

don't sweat it - BA is always a little off .. you would think 5 "experts" combined could yield better results... remember Felix Hernandez and Edwin Jackson?

No, but I do remember Felix Hernandez versus Francisco Liriano.

Given that criteria, I can see why they ranked Rasmus that high.

I think he will be a slow riser, though. This year, and maybe even through 2010, I completely agree with your version.

I can see a reason for Snider over Heyward, he is farther along. But Rasmus vs Snider, I don't see much that Snider is better at. He is a better pure hitter in my opinion but Rasmus has the edge or is even everywhere else. Also you have to take into account defense, which Rasmus will fare much better in.
