    BA Midseason Top 100

    Anyone know when it's supposed to come out?

    Also, if you had to compile your own Top 30 prospect list for all of baseball, what would it look like? Assume anyone who has played a game in the majors is ineligible (ie Garza, LaRoche, Wood, etc.)

    Mine would look something roughly like this...

    1. Justin Upton OF ARI
    2. Jay Bruce OF CIN
    3. Clay Buchholz RHP BOS
    4. Evan Longoria 3B TB
    5. Adam Jones OF SEA
    6. Wladimir Balentien OF SEA
    7. Jeff Niemann RHP TB
    8. Joba Chamberlain RHP NYY
    9. Cameron Maybin OF DET
    10. Max Scherzer RHP ARI
    11. Andrew McCutcheon OF PIT
    12. Colby Rasmus OF STL
    13. Ian Stewart 3B COL
    14. Joey Votto 1B CIN
    15. Clayton Kershaw LHP LAD
    16. Carlos Carrasco RHP PHI
    17. Adam Miller RHP CLE
    18. Chuck Lofgren LHP CLE
    19. Luke Hocheavar RHP KC
    20. Nick Adenhart RHP LAA
    21. David Price LHP TB (once he signs)
    22. Manny Parra LHP MIL
    23. Matt Wieters C BAL (once he signs)
    24. Gorkys Hernandez OF DET
    25. Franklin Morales RHP COL
    26. Henry Sosa RHP SF
    27. Carlos Gonzalez OF ARI
    28. Jose Tabata OF NYY
    29. Johnny Cueto RHP CIN
    30. Ian Kennedy RHP NYY


    Something interesting to note- Only four teams (ARI, TB, NYY and the Reds) have three or more players in the Top 30. How do your lists stack up?

    2 Mariners OFs in AAA in the top 5-10 prospects...my Lord. No wonder why there is so much talk of Ichiro leaving.

    NOTE - Each player CANNOT have pitched more than 50 innings, or had more than 130 ABs in the Majors in a single season

    Re: BA Midseason Top 100

    That list has its good and bad points. First off, it was put together by a guy that I have spent a few years talking about prospects with. The problem is he sent in a top 100 list, that also included Reds 3rd round pick Neftali Soto at 95. The publisher of the website took it upon himself to rearrange the chairs and add and subtract a few guys....

    So all in all, I really have no clue what to make of that list.

    Here is a bit of a disappointment in my eyes. I expected a bit more I guess.

    Ranking Neftali Soto at 95 may be a bit premature, no?

    A little bit, but the guy is said to have a premium bat. His defense is still a work in progress. We will see how that turns out toward the end of the season in terms of where he actually ranks. I wouldn't have put him that high, that is for sure. For that matter I didn't rank him in my top 10 Reds prospects, but that can easily change by years end.

    Re: BA Midseason Top 100

    By years end, maybe, but one month in rookie ball is a little too small. I'm of the belief that a guy must at least perform well in single-A ball before he should ever be considered for a top prospect list. Maybe if a guy is a HS phenom (re: top 10 draft pick) it can be considered an exception.

    Soto has looked very good so far, but it hasn't been a big enough sample size to justify jumping him over 100 other prospects drafted before him just one month ago.
    Go BLUE!!!

    Re: BA Midseason Top 100

    Well, we will agree almost to the point on the high school guys not being top 100 guys. There are certain exceptions (Bruce, Upton, Maybin, Rasmus, Rowell) that all jumped to mind right away.

    The one thing about Soto and being drafted later, he was playing in a place that doesn't get as many views and therefore was not getting as much love. I think its too early to have him that high, but if JP (who made the original list) is basing things off of performance and upside, then I can at least listen to his arguement for Soto at this point.

    I don't see how a guy who strikes out as much as Bruce(85Ks in half a season) could be considered such a high prospect. :

    Bruce's strikeout rate does have me concerned with how he will be received by the Cincinnati media and fanbase.

    #1 He won't strike out as much as Dunn
    #2 He plays better defense than Dunn
    #3 He'll hit for a higher average than Dunn
    #4 His name is not Adam Dunn
