Silly prospect-ranking question

I haven't seen one of these in a while, and the community forums don't seem as busy as they've been in the past, so what the heck. I'm in a DMB league and am trying, for enjoyment's sake, to "rank" my own team's prospects. Most of these calls are easy ones, but I'm having trouble in three spots.

1. Who would you rank higher, Archie Bradley or Jonathan Singleton? Would they both get A- grades? A B+ for Singleton?

2. I have a gaggle of B+/B prospects that I'm having trouble ordering. The list is comprised of Andrew Chafin, Kyle Crick, Courtney Hawkins, Luis Heredia, Lance McCullers, and Alex Meyer. How would you rank these guys? Which ones would get B+ grades and which would get a B? Which ones would fall outside your personal Top 100?

3.Anthony Rendon is right on that A-/B+ cusp for me, but I'd slot him behind Bradley and Singleton. What about Yonder Alonso, though? He's no longer an MLB prospect, but he still falls under that category in our league because he hasn't had any major league service time yet. Who would you rank first, of those two? Would you give Alonso a B+ as well? (Keep in mind that his performance this past year may have been dampened by PETCO being death on left-handed hitters.)

I'd love to see some rationale for whatever ranking you choose. Thanks in advance to anyone willing to take the time and slog through one, several, or all of these questions.
