Ba Top 100

Recommended Posts

67. Tillman

69. Liz

78. Patton

91. Reimold

Nice! I would have liked more near the very top, but 5 of the top 100 is solid, especially since Jones doesn't count.

The ETA's here are interesting:

Wieters: 2009

Tillman: 2010

Liz: 2008

Patton: 2008

Reimold: 2009

These guys are not only highly touted, they aren't too far away.

I'm still disappointed that Rowell isn't in the top 100. That just seems reactionary and shortsighted to me.

Well look on the bright side, Erbe and Rowell can replace Liz and Patton on next years list as Liz and Patton will be in the majors by then.

:P

Heres the list....

Enjoy the discussion gentlemen.....

That's what I like to see. Five of the top 100. I think Tillman will be much higher once this season is over. Also good to see Reimold on there.

Where are all of these great untouchables that the Cubs fans say they have. I saw Soto on there and then - 82 SEAN GALLAGHER and 75 TYLER COLVIN. Where are the great Veal, Ceda, etc.

Given what we know now - if it was my list, I'd probably replace Patton with Snyder - even ahead of Rowell - as I think he's a safer bet to be a good major leaguer.

I think that's the nature of these kinds of lists. They aren't going to burn a spot on a guy who is 3 levels away from playing in the majors and who didn't wow everyone in low A, no matter how young he was for that level.

I'll go back to the claim by Davearm that the Cubs offers have been superior to what was received by Atlanta for Renteria.

Jurrjens is just inside the top 50 and Hernandez sits at 92. IMO, and I think it's rather obvious, the Cubs offers are not as good. Even Colvin/Gallagher, two guys hanging around 80, would appear to be an inferior offer.

And, as I noted previously, I've seen at least one report saying that the Braves settled for less than value in Renteria.
