BA Top 10

It's almost as if prospect rankings are subjective and somewhat arbitrary!

I think we all know that prospect rankings in general are subjective. But I'm not sure if the point of the post went over your head. This is the same ranking a player ahead of another player in one place and behind him in another place. I haven't see that before. And being "subjective" or "arbitrary" does not explain the issue.

Different writers probably made the lists.

Correct.   At least, different groups of writers.    Also, I’m not sure what top 100 list was being cited.    The official BA list comes out later this week, I believe.

The comparison was between the BA Top 100 referenced in this thread: 

According to that thread, it was released 10/1/19. The comparison was to the BA Orioles Top 10 (the subject of this thread) which appears to have been released about a month later. I've never seen a publication put out the corresponding lists that are not correlated. Even though they typically use numerous writers.

I get your point, but it's likely that they go through a post season reassessment of each team's rankings. My guess is the new list Frobby referenced will reflect that assessment rather than what was likely an end of year update.

We’ll see.    I think the organizational lists are done with some pretty heavy local input (I think both Melewski and Meoli have been involved in putting past lists together), whereas the national lists don’t have any such input.    It’s possible the local writers were more heavily influenced by Hays’ September performance in Baltimore than BA’s staff that are really focused on scouting these guys in the minors.

Has anyone seen the rest of BA’s top 30 for us?     I’m trying to put together a spreadsheet of all the various top 30 lists for the O’s.    I don’t have BP’s list either.

Weird that you're doing this. I opened a spreadsheet this morning and started doing the same thing. But to answer your question, no.
