    Ellsbury ranking that high is laughable...Along with Bowdan's ranking too.

    He gave Tabata a nice spot, I think he's more around the low 20s than low teens, and Chamberlain should be in the top 10 easily.

    Is it actually true that rotoworld is run by acknowledged Red Sox fans or is that just an assumption some have here on this board? Just asking as I don't read that source.

    i have no idea about the leanings of the guy who posted the report. it was forwarded to me by a friend and i passed it along. i agree that chamberlain is a little low, given his performance so far this year.

    Haha yeah it is. I guess being injured doesn't count for Fernando but it does for Tabata when he dreamed up this list.

    Having Horne at about 150 is predictable for such a list. Think about the pitchers he has listed above Horne and that is all you need to know about that list.

    Nobody in their right mind would continue to argue that Buchholz isn't a top of the rotation talent. With an MDERA at about what Sherzer, Chamberlain and Horne all have posted so far this year, it ought not surprise anyone that Buchholz is highly rated. Where the author of that list falls down is by slighting others who should be rated at about the same level.

    Hilarious. According to this the Rockies should do a Bowden/Morales swap.

    And the Yankees should trade Chamberlain for Martinez.

    So should the Angels with Wood

    And the D Rays with McGee

    Funny
    Advantage Yankees

    I think my favorite is the Lars Anderson ranking.

    What is Anderson at 70ish? I really don't have much of a problem with that. He's doing incredibly well for a young power hitter in a league that isn't great for pop.

    Sure, he's a 1B/DH type, but if he's going to hit like he has, he's going to have great value.

    Yeah, like Bard, for example. Hilarious.

    Joba at #19 completely takes any credibility from those rankings.

    Clippard and Bard much higher than Horne is so far my favorite. To be honest though I just skimmed through it as the Martinez/Jaba/Bowden rankings pretty much decredited the list.

    It's just my opinion, but these are just merely lists that are someone's "fantasy baseball".

    The important lists come from what the organizations think of the players and how they value them. If you think this is wrong, just ask any player which list is important--the writers or the organizations....

    I will say that it's nice to see a mainstream media outlet like Rotoworld actually recognizing that Alan exists. That's the first step. Once that happens you can go nowhere but up.

    Like you said though, it doesn't mean much to his actual development or performance, but it is nice to see a "stupid" media source actually get it right by rightfully involving Alan in the conversation of top prospects.

    BA and BP know that Alan exists and he'll definitely be on their lists when they come out. While Rotoworld included Alan in their list, he's still way too low.

    Right, but Rotoworld is a "stupid media" site. They know about the professional ranks, and that's it. The fact that he's there at all is a step in the right direction, even if it's a baby step when a great bound is necessary.

    Speaking of BA, I know that they are doing an update to their top prospects list. Anyone know when that will be coming out?

    They were supposedly working on it during the first week of July. It was slated to be a midseason top 25.

    Not nearly as funny as the Daniel Bard ranking. Whatever else may be going on, at least the numbers they listed for Anderson are positive.
