This isn't really finished, but I feel bad about leaving the catchers hanging out there for so long without any support. Don't want 'em drooping. Plus I want to try and stay ahead of Silver over at BP. (I wrote this list up before his article came out last week.) So we'll make a quick pass at first base. Please leave comments.
From my old top 100:
Daric Barton, OAK : one of my pets for this year.
Joey Votto, CIN : i still don't really feel like i know him.
Lars Anderson, BOS : already has a bridge.
Chris Marrero, WAS : yep.
Chris Davis, TEX : i think of him kind of like if adam dunn and brandon wood had a kid. but is that good or bad?
Andrew Lambo, LA : my new favorite toy. "what have we here?"
Nick Weglarz, CLE : some other people's favorite toy. the numbers are fairly rare for a teenager in full-season. that's rare on a seasonal level, not a once-in-a-decade level, of course; still.
Jordan Brown, CLE : this was too high. i don't know what i was thinking. wait, i remember: "just hit". he can. but he's not good enough. good candidate to get hubered.
Chris Carter II, OAK : i'm not *quite* sold on this one, but i don't feel justified in having a strong opinion yet. for now we can put him in a chain gang with lambo and weglarz.
Other candidates (quickly tiered):
Kyle Blanks, SD
Matt Sweeney, ANA
Sean Doolittle, OAK
Chris Carter I, BOS : aka jordan brown IV
Juan Miranda, NYY
Cody Johnson, ATL
Anthony Rizzo, BOS
Brandon Snyder, BAL
Freddie Freeman, ATL
Yohermyn Chavez, TOR
Kyle Orr, LA
Michael Aubrey, CLE
Logan Morrison, FLA
Jeff Larish, DET
... and a bunch of guys i don't really believe in at all...
Aaron Bates, BOS
Mark Hamilton, STL
Matt Whitney, CLE
Andrew D'Alessio, SF
Bryan Byrne, ARI
Lucas Duda, NYM
Rhyne Hughes, TB
Mike Carp, NYM
Eric Duncan, NYY
Gaby Sanchez, FLA
Kala Ka'aihue, ATL
Clint Robinson, KC
I feel like there are more. I haven't even scanned the BA book for missing links yet. Not sure I can get to 30 real guys though. With 1B it's so hard to clear the bar offensively, as is well known.
I'm not ranking them quite yet; do throw out some other suggestions.
EDIT: from the suggestion box:
Angel Villalona, SF - move to 1B sounds pretty official.
Beau Mills, CLE - what the hey, put him here.
Craig Cooper, SD
Chris Nash, CLE
Osvaldo Morales, STL
