    It's still surprising to me that they have Cecchini so high up. I recognize why they would, but still.

    If you ignore the numbers he put up in Kingsport, the ranking is justified based on draft reports.

    jake degrom, rhp, mets: Degrom has taken an unusual path, beginning his college career at stetson as a shortstop and needing tommy john surgery soon after signing as a ninth-round pick in 2010. He was a revelation when he returned last summer, hitting 98 mph with a fastball that also features nice sink and filling the strike zone. His slider has its moments, too.

    You do realize that ranking is given to BA by the team. Tools are given by the team but the analysis is given by BA. That's why it's loaded with signees of Alderson.

    I got my copy today and they ranked d'Arnaud #1, Syndergaard #2 and Becerra #25.

    No, that is the Jays top 25, they did the book before the trade.

    “He’s always had a good arm, and always had a very good changeup,” Paul DePodesta said. “We used him out of the bullpen in 2011 [with Kingsport]. Then we used him as a starter in Brooklyn and he certainly proved that he was well above that league. He was outstanding. I think he finished with over 40 consecutive innings of not giving up an earned run.”

    Why would Robles not have achieved a higher level by age 22 if he showed all that promise?

    “For him, partly, it was a matter of opportunity,” DePodesta said. “And it was also just a matter of increased command, because he had the stuff. The command I think really helped that stuff blossom over the course of 2012.

    “In terms of adding him to the 40-man, because of that combination of stuff and command, we think he’s a guy who can move fast. We think he’s got a real ‘ceiling’ too, which is ultimately why we decided to protect him. It’s one thing to lose a guy if you think, ‘Hey, he can be a big leaguer, but maybe it’s just a role player.’ We think he has a chance to be something more than that, so we didn’t want to risk the chance of losing him.”
    On why the Mets put Robles on the 40 man roster.

    That's not true at all. I've gotten to know a few people here and there at BA since 1981. Back in 2000 or 2001 I was asked to help them compile their list for the Mets and contribute to the write ups. How the players are ranked is the judgment call of the writer.
    "The 90 wins is about challenge. It's about changing the conversation. It's about framing questions for ourselves as to how we get there. So I stand by the notion that we need to get better, and in doing so we need to set concrete goals for ourselves so that we have sort of specific conversations among ourselves about how we're going to get there." -- Mr. Alderson

    Baseball America's top 10 list (updated to have the top 31 - post 69)

    Whe a guy like Robles does what he did, you take no chances and you protect him.

    I have a feeling that he will start in St. Lucie this year, the jump from Brooklyn to Savannah is not much of a difference. The difference will be the grind of a longer season.

    Also I think they will give some of the guys they drafted last year a chance to start in Savannah, a guy like Oswalt or Taylor, though I could see them starting in Brooklyn instead of coming out of the pen.

    4. Luis Mateo, rhp
    5. Rafael Montero, rhp
    6. Wilmer Flores, 3b/2b
    7. Michael Fulmer, rhp
    8. Jeurys Familia, rhp
    9. Domingo Tapia, rhp
    10. Cory Mazzoni, rhp

    Be advised that the list was done before the Dickey trade so Syndergaard, d'Arbaud and Becerra were not included.
    Um... we need to diversify.

    Yes you do.

    Isn't the St. Lucie's rotation filled?
