  1. Fun alternative to reranking at midseason.

  2. I dunno, I like midseason rankings. It makes for a good analysis of “the story thus far” in a MiLB season. A lot can change in a few months.

    For one example, three Red Sox prospects made the initial list, one of them has graduated and one of the two remaining (Cecchini) wouldn’t rank most analyst’s top five for the organization at this point. By far our two best prospects this year have been Bradley and Barnes, neither of which rated this listed, but both of whom rated BA’s midseason top 50 (One of whom, Barnes, was the highest rated pick the Sox have had since Buchholz).

  3. Is this the same order as when they released the rankings before the season or is did they rerank everyone?

  4. This is the same ranking. I have not re-ranked the players…

    I didn’t do a re-ranking because I’ve spent the year rating players in the almost daily Stock Watch series so it seemed kind of redundant.

  5. Colvin has been much, much better since being put back into the rotation after a quick demotion to the bullpen. Look it up!

  6. I like midseason rankings too. It’s a good thing Keith Law, BA, BP, probably HBT, and many other sites are going to do them. I don’t mind one in a different format.

  7. I still think Starling Marte should have been in your pre-season top 100 somewhere in this 76-100 ranking.

    I think you’d have (Value Up) next to him too.

  9. I’m guessing Williams is the biggest mover in this group. Would you take a guess at where he’d fit in a revised list? Is there anyone else you would see as moving up as much or more than him?

  10. I don’t even want to read Julio Teheran’s write-up……:(

  11. Brett Jackson is a beast. His value should be rising. His ISO has been consistent. His OBP has been around .340 for his career. His walk rate is at 9.8% is decent and has shown he can maintain that level. He reminds me of a better Drew Stubbs. I think he will put up 30/30 numbers and as a center fielder(good defender) he will have a WAR of 4 plus guaranteed in his prime.

  12. Since he still hasn’t graduated, I think the obvious answer is Andrelton Simmons. He’s already considered the best defensive SS in baseball, he was raking in AA (significantly better wRC+ than Williams in low A), and showed the transition to MLB shouldn’t be an issue with his early performance there. I think he’s pretty clearly a no doubt top 20 prospect at this point.

  13. Stubbs is 28 (entering his prime) and not any of the things you’ve mentioned

  14. I like this format, but would it be possible at the end of the series to maybe put a short list of players that you think would now make the Top 100 (that previously weren’t)?

  15. Yeah, I think it has to be Simmons. It’s not an exaggeration to say that he has perennial gold glove potential, and he’s been hitting at an almost-800 OPS clip, far more than anyone expected (I doubt that persists but certainly hope that it does).

    As the poster below alludes to, for as much as Simmons has gone up, Teheran, well…woof.

  16. Alan Webster is the new Trey McNutt.
