But you already knew that, didn’t you.

The MLB Network did a great job with their coverage (that they were good enough to stream live on MLB.com last night) and the microsite listing all members of the top 100 list is fun, too. Full statistical breakdowns and little video bios of each player ensure you’re about to blow significant amount of time reading about teenage baseball players.

Matt Moore sits alone at the top with his one-to-one millions of dollars to professional innings pitched ratio and aw shucks charm. Bryce Harper, Mike Trout, Julio Tehran, and Shelby Miller round out the top five.

The Mariners top out Mayo’s prospect points system with five highly-ranked players, though the Padres manage six names in the top 100 list. It is a good idea to be a right-handed pitcher if you want to rank as a top prospect, seeing 20 of them sit in the top 50 alone. Remember this before we have another “Where is all the offense? Must be drugs!” conversation.

  1. This thread deserves more discussion than the useless crap about how Rogers should spend their money. So here goes:

    This is awesome and exciting. I’m very happy to see the Jays well represented but I secretly hoped they’d rank even higher (and have more guys on the list).

    I also notice there are a fe very high ranked Yankee prospects, which makes me think they weren’t all just over-hyped for being yankee prospects and may actually be legit (or this list suffers from yankee hype too… i guess that’s a possibility).

    It’s fun to read the player descriptions and just daydream about what these guys might turn into.

    For those interested Kevin Goldstein’s Bluejays Minor league overview is available on BP too. and it’s very fap worthy.

    • No Red Sox in the top 100! SCANDAL!

      • I feel like the Red Sox are about to enter a period of suckitude. I know everyone says they will be good this year, but I just don’t see it. I think the Yankees and Rays are far better and the Sox and Jays will be battling for 3rd.

        I have no real basis for that feeling.

        • Agree with IMW. Some weird moves by the Sawx in the offseason. Bard starting, trading all their shortstops for pitching, apparently working against a budget?

          No surprise the Mariners are up there, one would assume they had some arms in mind if they traded Pineda.

        • I have a similar feeling, but that became true only after they gave away Scutaro. The team hasn’t changed much from last year and they’ve probably improved their pitching staff in the process. The AL East is going to be brutal, yet again.
