Top 150 prospect list

I know it is a fairly slow time in the prospect world as many of us are waiting on the "well-respected" to lay out their top lists by teams & positions.

While we wait, I thought it would be worth some discussion to post this list of top 150 prospects I found here:

http://www.dobberbaseball.com/index.php/component/content/article/26-rankings/2144-top-150-prospects

 

There are many places where players have exceeded prospect status (Storen, B Wallace, J Bell) & many places I disagree.  Too high--Mejia, Carrasco, Scheppers, & Moreland to name a few.  Too low--Teheran, Trout, Matt Moore, & Hosmer to name a few.

I think they definitely consider floor higher than other places.  A couple years ago, they had Nelson Cruz as a top 10 prospect & I ridiculed them for that but he seems to be doing just fine.

IMO, not a great list, but I am sure we can generate a decent amount of discussion here about where you would place some of these guys.  Thoughts?
