Another top 100 . . .

Here's is my present, personal top 100 . . . systematically, I just ranked the prospects in the order in which I would covet them in my own system. Two things will push a guy up for me: ceiling, and readiness to contribute. So, although Matthew Moore has a higher ceiling than Wade Davis, I still greatly prefer Davis, as he's ready drop in as a #3 right now. Probably not too many outrageous rankings, though there are some guys I'm more bullish on than the norm (Alcides Escobar, Jacob Turner, Brett Jackson, Reese Havens) and some guys that I'm less bullish on (Michael Stanton, Fernando Martinez, Daniel Hudson, Yonder Alonso).

I'm intending this not as an authority or anything, but because I've enjoyed looking at others' lists, and it's a good way to settle into discovering what I actually do value in prospects, and to hold myself accountable (when I mock someone's ranking in two years, they can just come back to this post and mock my ranking of x).
