    Keith Law Top 100 (2 Reds)

    76. Yonder Alonso- Bad defensively, compares to Votto, maybe a platoon guy or Carlos Delgado like. (More than 5 players that were drafted after Alonso ranked higher than him on this list.)

    89. Drew Stubbs- Very positive about Stubbs. May become Mike Cameron with more speed. Even if the power doesn't show up will still be productive because of 70 speed and defense.

    Josh Vitters #14. LOL. Neftali Soto is top ten then.

    The Reds took Keith Law's girlfriend and kicked his dog.

    Re: Keith Law Top 100 (2 Reds)

    Lists are easy targets, but Mr. Law’s pretty confident in what he does.

    Law on Law: “I really don't give a crap about where players rank in other rankings. I don't consider them when doing my own rankings, and it doesn't bother me if I'm really high on a guy no one else likes. I go see players, I evaluate them, and I rank them. That's it.”

    See. Evaluate. Rank. That’s it. I smell a system. Dare I say the SEEER System?

    Let’s revisit some of the SEEER’s work, from his 2 previous top 100s.

    From January 07. Added a few bolds…

    1. Alex Gordon, 3B, Royals
    2. Delmon Young, RF, Devil Rays
    “ It would still be a huge upset if he doesn't become a big star, hitting for average and power with good defense.”
    3. Chris Young, CF, Diamondbacks
    “ a star-caliber bat”
    4. Philip Hughes, RHP, Yankees
    5. Homer Bailey, RHP, Reds
    6. Fernando Martinez, CF, Mets
    7. Adam Miller, RHP, Cleveland
    8. Brandon Wood, SS, Angels
    9. Andrew McCutchen, CF, Pirates
    10. Jose Tabata, CF/RF, Yankees
    11. Yovani Gallardo, RHP, Brewers
    12. Billy Butler, LF, Royals
    13. Evan Longoria, 3B, Devil Rays
    “Lower ceiling than a lot of guys on this list”
    14. Ryan Braun, 3B, Brewers

    15. Cameron Maybin, CF, Tigers
    16. Tim Lincecum, RHP, Giants
    17. Josh Fields, 3B, White Sox
    18. Adam Jones, CF, Mariners
    19. Adam Lind, LF, Blue Jays
    20. Carlos Gonzalez, RF, Diamondbacks
    21. Reid Brignac, SS, Devil Rays
    22. Matt Garza, RHP, Twins
    23. Troy Tulowitzki, SS, Rockies
    24. John Danks, LHP, White Sox
    25. Andy LaRoche, 3B, Dodgers
    “Should be an above-average third baseman in the bigs.”

    Honorable mentions
    • Nick Adenhart, RHP, Angels
    • Jay Bruce, RF, Reds
    “I'm probably the low man on Bruce”

    • Clay Buchholz, RHP, Red Sox
    • Elijah Dukes, OF, Devil Rays
    • Brandon Erbe, RHP, Orioles
    • Phil Humber, RHP, and Mike Pelfrey, RHP, Mets
    • Eric Hurley, RHP, Rangers
    • Chuck Lofgren, LHP, Indians
    • Felix Pie, CF, Cubs
    • Colby Rasmus, CF, Cardinals
    • Justin Upton, CF, Diamondbacks
    “ while it may not be fair, brother B.J. is now four years out and still hasn't established himself in the majors.”


    From January 08, here’s dougdirt’s take on Law’s top 100:

    Franklin Morales at 8??
    Fernando Martinez at 10??
    Desmond Jennings at 11??
    Andrew McCutchen at 12??
    Carlos Triunfel at 18??
    Jose Tabata at 21??
    Nick Adenhart at 23??
    Jordan Schafer at 27??
    Mike Moustakas at 47??
    German Duran at 48??!?!?!?!
    Joey Votto at 56??
    Mitch Boggs at 73?!?!?!?!
    Andrew Brackman at 100??

    What can we say about the SEEER, Keith Law? Does the SEEER unveil the future, or does he expose himself?

    That’s it!

    Re: Keith Law Top 100 (2 Reds)

    Not to be toooooo picky but...Chris Nelson? #72 Yonder Alonso #76? and Frazier and Soto are not even on the list? Chris Nelson's on the list and these guys aren't?? Really Chris Nelson should not be on the list. Frazier probably should be and Soto maybe; even if they aren't on the list they shouldn't be behind Chris Nelson....and Mat Gamel can hit, he will play somewhere long before Chris Nelson is productive...anyway, I have now wasted some time looking at this list...my bad... :

    I'll take Carlos Delgado or another Joey Votto. Of course, both of those players are still good hitters against lefties so I'm not sure how they can be grouped with "maybe a platoon guy." I think "maybe a platoon guy" should be this year's "throw him in the bullpen or whatever"...

    Re: Keith Law Top 100 (2 Reds)

    From what I've read, Alonso projects as an average to slightly above average defender at first base.

    Mike Cameron with MORE SPEED?

    I'd guess that over the past decade Cameron's easily been one of the 10 fastest players in the game. The man has elite speed. Stubbs would need 70 speed just to stay close to Cameron.

    Don't take any of this as a knock against Stubbs, but has Law seen Mike Cameron play?

    I'm beginning to doubt he's seen anyone play.

    Stubbs has that kind of speed.
