The first rounders of the past few years have hurt the rankings. Alonso hasn't played yet and Stubbs/Mesoraco have question marks.
Alonso having a small track record of 150 PA doesn't matter really. These guys know what he is capable of. He isn't a high school kid without a track record. He is an ACC College Baseball player without a long pro track record. Big difference.
Still, its funny how far things range in terms of where they rank. I have seen them as high as 12 and as low as 26. Thats a HUGE disparity that simply shouldn't happen.
