Subscribers can get reports on the top 11. Thoughts on this list as compared to others?


  1. Brandon Martin and Luke Bailey are ranked for the first time compared to the other lists I used for the aggregated top prospect list. Goldstein also likes Blake Snell while he doesn't like Parker Markel as much as others.

    He is totally right with the Rays' recent drafts. They don't have a lot to show yet.

    I've added this list to the aggregated one already but I'm posting it a bit later. I want to post the aggregated rankings of Rays' prospects on the Top 100 prospect lists before (and before posting this ranking I wait for John Sickels to reveale his Top 100 ... should come out this week).

  2. just another list from people who have no idea what, or who prospects are.

    1. And threaded comments work, after only five years...

    2. if i knew who they were i would let you know, or i could just take a s.w.a.g like the rest of you and call it the rays top prospects. for the most part you guys just read what others print and change a few words make a spreadsheet and call it your list. lets have the rays management tell us who they consider the "prospects" i bet their list doesn't come close to anything you guys have.
