It is crazy how the Rays continually have several guys annually appear on this list.

There is a very real possibility Brett Wallace (#19) will be the Cards opening day starter considering Troy Glaus decided to wait until now to have surgery on his shoulder.

Keith Law's pretty bad as far as baseball writing is concerned.

I love his comments on Andrew McCutcheon, "Andrew McCutchen has been rushed. Repeat after me: He has been rushed."

Uh, what? Really? He skipped no levels and finished AA in 2006 for the last month, then did most of 2007 at AA. Then did the same thing with AAA.

Take the list for what it is -- one writer's opinion. BBA will likely have their list later this winter and Fox Sports will have one as well. If there is a consensus, we can assume that the players are pretty good. We've all seen guys that were considered "can't miss" prospects do precisely that -- miss.

Law's list deviates compared to the consensus thinking of the Top 100. But there's no doubting that Wieters, Price and Heyward are the top three in that order.

Default Top 100 Prospects

100 prospects in baseball. Last year's No. 1 prospect, Evan Longoria, ended up winning the American League Rookie of the Year Award, setting a high standard for the player at the top of this year's list.The rankings are limited to players who still have rookie eligibility; that means they have yet to exceed 130 at-bats or 50 innings pitched in the majors, and have not yet spent 45 days on the active roster of a major-league club, excluding callups during the roster expansion period after Sept. 1. Only players who have signed professional contracts are eligible. When ranking players, I consider scouting reports on players -- usually my own, supplementing with conversations with other scouts and front-office executives as needed -- as well as performance, adjusted for age and context.
