List is OK I guess, but several curious items:

- Bethancourt ranked VERY high

- Dont think too many lists will have Hultzen above Trout.

- L Martin completely omitted

- Y Grandal completely omitted

- Gennett?  He must really like him.

Also, several other guys that arguably could be on, particularly over a guy like Gennett:  B Boxberger, Derek Norris, T Thornburg, T McNutt, N Ramirez, S Solis, M Purke, A Hicks, G Green, M Dominguez, J Vitters, T Beckham, C Colon, J Decker.  The prospect status for a lot of these guys has slipped, but most of them made a BA League Top 20 and all still are prospects.  And a lot of them had very good AFL campaigns, FWIW.  Also, some of these guys didnt play much, but he didnt seem to have an AB or IP requirement, because Bradley made the list w only 8.3 IP.  The teams played 36-38 games, so figure that a reasonable threshold would be 1 AB or 0.3 IP per game.
