I said this in the Jays forum too but I cant understand how Brett Cecil is number 90 when he is the Jays 2nd best prospect AND there are TWO Jays in front of him.

Fowler at 12? Wow, that's by far the highest I've seen him.

Why the **** is LaPorta at 30?

Why the **** is Moustakas at 21?

Why the **** is Andrus at 73?

Why the **** is Lars Anderson at 17?

It's a pretty ****ty list, as much as I love Bumgarner, he shouldn't be ranked 3rd, at least not yet. Next year I would predict his ranking to be in the top 5 but there are quite a few that I would rank ahead of him as of now.

It's about projection and the likelihood of reaching that projection, not just the player's production in the low levels of the minors.

Yeah, but not his offensive projection, but where he will play.

Beckham will play SS and Flores will likely play 3rd or a corner out field spot. Thats why Tim will always be rank higher.

Off the top of my head, not getting too in depth

Jarrod Parker needs to be a good deal higher

Heyward and Hanson should both be in the top 10 IMO

Buster Posey's not THAT good

I LOVE that someone finally didn't include A. Escobar and Elvis Andrus in the top 50

Laporta and Brett Anderson should both be in the teens

Matt Gamel in the 50's? I know he has a bit of an issue with contact, and he can't field for ****, but the guy can rake, he's top 50 at least.

Oh, and Logan Morrison at 53?!? What the hell is going on there?!? He should be a good 30+ spots higher than that.
