  9. Chris Young
  10. Troy Tulowitzki
  11. Billy Butler
  12. Matt Garza
  13. Andrew McCutchen
  14. Evan Longoria
  15. Adam Miller
  16. Andy LaRoche
  17. Yovani Gallardo
  18. Mike Pelfrey
  19. Carlos Gonzalez
  20. Reid Brignac
  21. Scott Elbert
  22. Andrew Miller

  28. James Loney
  29. Luke Hochevar
  30. Adam Jones
  31. Clayton Kershaw
  32. Hunter Pence
  33. Josh Fields
  34. Jarrod Saltalamacchia
  35. Jacoby Ellsbury

  45. Joey Votto
  46. Jeff Niemann
  47. John Danks
  48. Erick Aybar
  49. Chuck Lofgren
  50. Brandon Erbe

Players in the top 50, which didn't make the combined list:
Community list: 3 (Clement, Aybar, Lofgren)
BDD: 5 (Dukes, Danks, Aybar, Lofgren, Erbe)
MiLB: 7 (Dukes, Rasmus, Iannetta, Lind, Votto, Neimann, Erbe)

Players with highest standard deviation among the lists:
Dukes, Clement, Aybar, Iannetta, Stewart, Fields.
==> I find it interesting that these are also some of the guys closest to being MLB-ready.

Players ranked on all 3 with the biggest high-low difference percentage:
Stewart, Hirsh, Salty, Fields, Barton, Kershaw

Guys the community ranked highly:
Wood, Butler, LaRoche, Lincecum, Hochevar, Dukes
