Time to fire this bad boy up again ;-D

If not, I might be able to co-coordinate with someone if we could get 5-10 rankers and crank something out in the next couple of weeks. If there's one in the works somewhere and I missed it somehow, I'd love to participate (or at least utilize if I'm too late for that) so let me know if you know anything ;-D

I would love to help, but since I play an AL-only league I know almost nothing about NL prospects. I look forward to reading other peoples rankings though. :-)
Here's the pitch on the way, a swing and a belt! Left field! Way back! BLUE JAYS WIN!

Profar's upside is very much in debate. I just don't see it. So I'll say .280/.360 20HR type. Not bad, perennial all star but not a superstar.

Don't understand your 2nd sentence and quite disappointed at the lack of lists.

I agree with PWF.. Profar's upside will depend on a lot if he can fill out.. He is still only 18 years old.. I think Profar has .300 20-20 type of ceiling but a lot will come down to how he matures physically.. If he does watch out because the kid could be a truly elite SS.. Either way the kid is an elite talent and has a bright future..

30-Arodys Vizcaino (P)-ATL
31-Manny Banuelos (P)-NYY
32-Randall Delgado (P)-ATL
33-Jon Singleton (1B/OF)-HOU
34-Jake Odorizzi (P)-KC
35-Xander Boegarts (SS)-BOS
36-Travis D'Arnaud (C)- TOR
37-Christian Yellich (OF)-FLA
38-Matt Harvey (P)-NYM
39-Oscar Tavaras (OF)-STL
40-James Paxton (P)-SEA

47-Dellin Betances (P)-NYY
48-Trevor May (P)-PHI
49-Nick Franklin (SS)-SEA
50-Gary Brown (OF)-SF


list is still preliminary and tentative to change, Moore/Trout/Harper is a tight top 3 and any of those guys could be #1. The rest of the list still feels like a mess, I feel like I have some guys too high (Tavaras, Cole, Jackson) and others too low (D'Arnaud, Grandal, Cuthbert)

I'm just glad there is a 2nd list. I probably need to revise mine too. D'Arnaud and Mesoraco shouldn't be that far apart.
