Team D - Top flight talent, with two guys in the top 2. Great depth with 12 guys in the top 100. (Top 10 - 2, Top 25 - 5, Top 50 - 8, Top 100 - 12)
Team F - Again, two guys in the top 10, with 8 guys in the top 50. Only thing holding it from being the top spot is the crazy depth that Team D has. (Top 10 - 2, Top 25 - 3, Top 50 - 8, Top 100 - 8)
Team H - Great talent at the top, but it thins out quickly. (Top 10 - 2, Top 25 - 5, Top 50 - 6, Top 100 - 6)
Team E - A couple of good guys and lots of low-level talent. Kinda a scatter shot approach. (Top 10 - 2, Top 25 - 3, Top 50 - 4, Top 100 - 10)

[Gap]

Team G - A few guys who could make an impact. Not very much depth. (Top 10 - 1, Top 25 - 2, Top 50 - 4, Top 100 - 5)
Team I - A top guy and a few low level talent. (Top 10 - 1, Top 25 - 1, Top 50 - 2, Top 100 - 5)

[Large gap]

Team B (Top 10 - 0, Top 25 - 1, Top 50 - 1, Top 100 - 4)
Team C (Top 10 - 0, Top 25 - 0, Top 50 - 2, Top 100 - 3)
Team J (Top 10 - 0, Top 25 - 1, Top 50 - 1, Top 100 - 1)
Team A (Top 10 - 0, Top 25 - 0, Top 50 - 1, Top 100 - 2)
Team K (Top 10 - 0, Top 25 - 0, Top 50 - 0, Top 100 - 1)

It's like these last five teams aren't even trying. I don't know much about international or high school players, and don't include in my spreadsheet because they're not eligible for the leagues I play in.

Thanks for the replies. Didn't mean for this to be a brag post, wanted some impartial opinions. My team is D. Some of the guys in my league like H & E's farms better than mine. Not that it matter's, I just agree with the consciousness that I have solid depth and top end talent. There's also been a lot of mocking of team F because he spend half of last year's draft on HS and College guys. It looks like most agree with me it worked out well. Having Jennings from the prior year helps too.

There's definitely a divide in our league between the guys who do their minor league research and those that don't. It doesn't help that teams J & K have been in contention the past couple seasons and have been selling, not buying picks and prospects and the deadline. Team C also had a decent system to start last year but made a big trade with Team E that helped him win the league this season. Team A had arguably the best system but had to elevate Beckham, Matusz, Fowler, Latos, Niemann & Fowler.

Matt Moore isn't the only top guy available. We draft once a year and can't pickup throughout the season. Guys like Drabek, Moore, Castro, Kelly, etc should all go in the first round in March.

Steve-O you don't think Perez & Ynoa are both top 100 guys?

Perez absolutely is. Ynoa I don't know what to think about yet. I think when I finish my rankings Ynoa will probably slide into the top 100. I mean he does have plus secondary stuff. The elbow thing scares me a little, especially considering how young he is.

Actually I'd love to hear some opinions on Ynoa. Where do other people see him slotting in the top 100?
