Re: MLB Network Special Top 50 Prospects tonight
My major pet peeve with this list, and it has been since I found out a few years ago how it was compiled: Jonathan Mayo asks scouts for their Top 30 prospects and they get 1-30 points each. If every scout had the same #31 prospect, he wouldn't get a single vote. But if one scout ranks a guy #14 and no one else would have had him in their Top 50, he is considered a much better prospect by doing the list this way. Just not a fan of doing a Top 50 when you only ask people to rank 30 guys.
