Baseball America Top 100 Comparison

Here is the full list if you hadn't checked it out yet. If so, why are you here and not there? Haha..

I did a side by side comparison of my top 300 pro prospects to see how it stacks up against BA. I know I am more fond of certain prospects and this sheds some light on that.

At the top, I'm much higher on Lucas Giolito at 10, compared to 21 for BA. Albert Almora is at 12 for me, 36 for them. Clint Frazier at 19 compared to 48. A few other notables were Max Fried 21/53, Marcus Stroman 28/55, David Dahl 30/94, Dom Smith 36/92.

BA is much higher on Maikel Franco at 17 where I have him at 56. I'm low on Jameson Taillon 22/48, CJ Edwards 60/28, JOc Pederson 34/63, Kyle Zimmer 23/70, Aaron Sanchez 32/97, Kyle Crick 33/100, and Billy Hamilton 43/193.
