I said they were taken
in the top 100 picks, not necessarily top 100 prospects.
They all showed good promise within a year or two of being drafted (with the possible exception of Mez/Hamilton) enough that they'd all likely make a Top 200 prospects list.
And I agree, I'd definitely have Winker in the top 200. Travieso I wouldn't be surprised, but I'm not expecting him to be in the Top 100 in the next 6-12 months. Rahier and Gelalich have a lot
to prove if they are going to be there. They'd have to have a Mez-like resurgence to make the Top 100 next year. My overall point is to go 0-for-4 (with Top 100 picks) in the BA Top 200
9 months after the draft indicates that BA doesn't think very highly of this draft crop, at least certainly at the moment.
