Looking Back at My First Top Prospect List from Feb 2009

I looked at Baseball America, Baseball Prospectus, ESPN and Project Prospect to see where I differed from the pack.

I had 13 players that no one else had:
56 Jaff Decker OF SD
58 Micheal Almanzar 3B BOS
68 Bryan Anderson C STL
72 Hank Conger C LAA
73 Tim Melville P KC
75 Yorman Rodriguez OF CIN
76 Oscar Tejeda SS BOS
77 Nick Barnese P TB
78 Josh Fields P SEA
81 Nick Noonan 2B SF
94 Cedric Hunter OF SD
95 Shooter Hunt P MIN
100 Matt Moore P TB

I have more unique picks than anyone else. A few of these guys have flopped but Decker, Conger, Rodriguez and Moore are solid picks. I think that will only increase as this goes along. I haven't looked at the 2010 or the new 2011 lists but it will be interesting to see.

Baseball America were unique with:
66 Lou Marson
71 Wilson Ramos
90 Daniel Cortes
94 Brad Holt
96 Sean West

Baseball Prospectus were unique with:
45 Willin Rosario
70 Scott Elbert
81 Ross Detwiler
84 Kellen Kulbacki
92 Kyle Drabek
98 Brandon Erbe
100 Adys Portillo

I was too low on Drabek as I had him at #166. He was a personal favorite but I restricted myself from putting him higher. I learned from that.

ESPN were unique with:
72 Chris Nelson
81 Nick Hagadone
90 Junichi Tazawa
97 Jeff Locke
98 Jay Jackson

Project Prospect were unique with:
60 Kila Ka'aihue
62 Danny Duffy
71 Dellin Betances
87 Kasey Kiker
90 Carlos Gutierrez
91 James Simmons
93 Shairon Martis
95 Nick Evans
100 Eric Young Jr.
