Mike is out today, so we’re bringing in Dave Gershman of Beyond the Box Score to co-host the show. We’re talking Baseball America’s Top 100 list, which includes six Yankees. We’re talking them, plus some other AL East prospects, on the show.

  6. Doug says:

    In their BA’s Q&A, Joe, they address your opening issue with the overall list being inconsistent with the team top 10s.

    Q: I know the team lists are done individually whereas the Top 100 is a compilation of all your lists but shouldn’t there be some sort of “truing up” exercise? You have 3 teams (NYM, BOS and HOU) whose #3 prospect made the list but not their #1. Its a product of the methodology, sure, but it seems goofy

    A: Not true at all about those No. 1s. The Mets (Mejia), Red Sox (Iglesias) and Astros (Lyles) all have their No. 1s on their list. We do the team lists well in advance of the Top 100, so occasionally you’ll see the prospect order on a team change on the Top 100. The team lists aren’t just the work of one person, but you are correct that in some cases we’ll defer to writer who has spent the most time compiling that list.
