  1. Whoops, #62...spreadsheets a little out of control right now.

  2. Good list Matt. Surprized that Jacob Turner didn't make the list. Personally, I'd have in the 44-46 range. Feliz looks a lot low - he'd be in single digits portion of the list for me as would Martin Perez. Smoak would be the 3rd ranked Ranger, not the 1st. Of course, in the land of prospects everyone's has an opinion!

  3. What about Daniel Hudson of the White Sox? He compiled one of the best minor league pitching seasons out of anyone last year, rising from low A to getting a major league call-up by year's end!

  4. Turner is at 145 and could have been higher. I could see him being in the top 50 next season.

  5. Updated as of 2-20-10 to match my top 2000.
