I've got my Top 40 completely figured out and will start posting that probably next week. There are definitely some differences on several players between yours and mine, but there should be. I'm sure we all see things and players and teams and such completely different. I enjoy the list. I'm probably most surprised by how low you have Parmelee considering he has shown power.

Travis Aune said...

because he needs to improve on the strikeout totals or he cant help the Twins im rooting for him because of the power

Slama is 24 years old in Hi-A. Delaney is 23 years old in Hi-A.
both are pitching great... So, how come there are 22 spots in between them?

I think Matt Moses is at least 6 spots too high!

Travis Aune said...

thats a good question and i welcome them i just think Delaney is more hittable and I would like to see Slama moved up

Travis,
Do you have a sense for which prospects that you are higher on than most, or which prospects you rank lower than many others might? Can you name maybe 2-3 prospects that you have a really good feeling about over what others might? And then name 2-3 prospects that you think generally get ranked higher than you think they should.

No Matt Macri? How close is he to the top 50?

Travis Aune said...

a couple prospects that i think can be big leaguers that many people are not high on are
1. Johnny Woodard- I think he has some good pop in his bat and is a decent hitter who seems to be getting better and better if he can just stay healthy.
2. Anthony Slama- I know he is old for high A but i think Anthony has a good future because right now he is dominant
Couple guys i think will be ranked too high are
1. Joe Benson- I think he strikes out too much to be as high as people are on him. His 5 tools dont help you if he doesnt get on base.
2. Wilson Ramos- I have heard alot of good things about him but i just have not seen it. Maybe its because im new to following the minor leagues but what i have seen is a bad hitter who gives up alot of stolen bases maybe i am wrong but thats what i have observed so far this season.
Im sure there are many more we will disagree on but thats what is fun is to have the debate. Nobody will have the same rankings and they shouldn't becuase its so subjective

Travis Aune said...

same question for you

Travis Aune said...

Im not high on Macri at all i just see him as an average infielder who will have his cup of coffee and then go back down. Probably around 70 to 75
