I think Law tends to rank by upside. But Lee did adjust better to next level than Hamilton did

My take on Law in the past was that he preferred players whose ETA in MLB was sooner over those with the most longterm potential, but maybe he's changing his ways.

A very good list as always.

Guys I would move up a little bit:

Bogaerts
Marisnick
Cuthbert

Guys I'd move down a little bit:

Montgomery
Perez
Alonso
Archer

After thinking it a bit, I'm starting to have my doubts about Moore at 1 on my list. Right now he's probably 1B to Harper's 1A. Trout is really good, don't get me wrong, but I don't think he's up there with Moore/Harper due to upside.
Are you interested in joining a 28 teams dynasty league? If so, PM me.

same here, I feel funny about placing a pitching prospect above Trout and Harper. I just like Trout more, I <3 5 tool players. Harper, Moore and Trout are all extremely good though, you could make an argument for any of them to be the #1 prospect.

Anyone know where I can find blurbs on these guys? Most of the big names are taken in my league, so I need to get to know the newer or lesser-known guys. I especially like to find guys that will likely be called up during the current season.

Thanks for any help.

My favourite combination of rankings and information I've come across yet. I was able to get information for about 25-30 free agents in my AL-only dynasty league from there.
