one thing to note is that it is actually the ranking of the top 25- 26-50 are just the next 25 but only listed in ABC order.
It is an interesting list for sure that is not based solely on numbers like many other lists i have seen where 26 year olds breakout and jump into the top 50. BA takes into consideration upside, tools, floors and ceilings. I like the list- the O's have 3 pitching prospects in the top 50, Hobgod will come along also bright future for that rotation. I'm a little surprised to see Montero at #3 only b/c i'm not sure he sticks at catcher- if he stays at catcher i might prefer him to Jason Heyward. I'm glad to see Dominic Brown in the top 20

I'm so happy I was able to grab Montero for my minors team. I already have Wieters so whether or not he sticks at C is irrelevant to me. I'd love for him to end up at 1b but that's clearly not happening. His bat is just ridiculous, could be up in September if he keeps it up.

Catcher looks like it could be a pretty deep position next decade with Mauer, Wieters, McCann, Soto, Martin, and the 3 top 10 C prospects, we'll see how it pans out.

Catcher is really deep in the minors with Castro (whom is making everyone eat crow), Norris whom is tearing it up and Flowers whom isn't listed (seems to be underrated) among some other catchers that are on the horizon.

yeah there are a lot of good catchers out there. i also like Bryan Anderson- STL, Max Ramirez- TEX, Luis Exposito for the red sox, max stassi if he signs will be a name to pay attention to. The angels have Hank Conger but he might not stay at the position.

I watched Heyward play this weekend and he looked great. Drew a walk, went the other way, beat out an infield hit, made a diving catch and made strong throws. I was surprised at the size of this kid, looked taller than 6'4 and a very athletic build.
