Chase
BA's top-100
Tue Feb 21, 2012 15:53
63.255.150.2

Alonso, Liriano & Grandal are ranked highest. The Cespedes signing tied the A's with the Padres in the most ranked players:

SD 6
OAK - 6
Ms 5
Tex 5
Stl - 5
Arz 4
Tor 4
TB 4
Col 4
NYY - 4

I'm surprised Robbie Erlin didn't make the list. They ranked him #34 in their 2011 mid-season top-50, and he had an excellent end to his season.

      BA released the numbers for each team, and the Padres look to be in a great position in 2012. Seven teams, including the Padres spent atleast 10m on their top-10 round picks last year. Of those teams ... more

        I still can't believe they went this route in the new CBA. Yeah, let's talk all day and night about competitive balance and then throw a rule in which is going to help the Yankees and penalize the... more

          I'm kind of curious what you are referring to. I don't think it was going to be long before the high revenue teams were able to get the lion's share of the draft talent. The more aggressive small... more

            That was definitely a possibility. The Red Sox seemed to be the only big market team that took advantage of their resources that way, but nothing would have stopped other big clubs from deciding to... more

              I'm going to admit that I don't think I understood this at all even 3 days ago. Im still not sure I do. I was in Boston today for a conference the MIT biz school is putting on. It's my 2nd time at... more

                Is that really a problem, though? I suppose there is some marketing downside to losing the few athletes that baseball grabs between multiple sport stars now -- some of those guys can be very exciting ... more

                  People may appreciate the game. But, I think Americans really value stellar athleticism. I know there was a period of time where baseball was being populated by glorified softball players. But I... more

                    or lack thereof, here's a video of Jaff Decker hitting a nice two-strike homer off a lefty in the AFL. Best part is getting a side-by-side comparisson of both Decker & Gyorko when he crosses home... more

                    I can pretty much work around the schedule you guys need to keep as long as we're talking about something at 5pm or later. I don't think there is any chance my son gets to play tackle football before ... more

                I don't own much in the way of baseball memorabilia, but I treasure my 1979 Bill James Baseball Abstract. So, when the Simmons/James talk appeared on my iTunes this weekend, I was eager to jump on... more
