Predicting BA's Top 100

BA will be posting their overall Top 100 prospects soon, maybe next week.  I thought it would be fun to try to predict what it will be.  I based the list pretty much on the BA Team Top 10's, League Top 20's, last year's BA Top 100 and as many rankings as I know about Callis' Top 50 (almost all of them).  But, I also used my own judgment, so there are some discrepancies.  I also included 10 Honorable Mentions - BA usually includes these also.

There are 50 AL players and 50 NL players, so that seems right.  There are 55 hitters and 45 pitchers, so that seems about right, too.  Tampa has 7 guys, Boston has 6 and Cincy, Oakland, Colorado and Baltimore (surprise!) have 5 each.  I dont think any team will get shut out, like San Diego was last year (the Santana trade may have saved Minnesota), altho the White Sox are a possibility.  There are 5 teams w only 1 player (Detroit, Toronto, Mets, Houston and ChiSox).  I wont bother listing them, but I count 20 guys that made last year's list that wont make it this year, which also seems about right.
