After publishing Prospect Pipeline's Top 50 Monday morning, I've been overwhelmed with the amount of positive feedback that I have received. As one commenter noted, I wasn't concerned with representing every team—which is absolutely true. Considering my goal is to assemble a sincere and justifiable Top 50, the last thing I would do is compromise the article's integrity by catering to every single team.
So now, since not every fanbase had the opportunity to read about its top prospect on Monday, I have put together scouting reports on every team's No. 1 prospect.
For those wondering about the criteria for these players' selections, please refer to the introduction of the Top 50.
Now, I fully understand that some of my rankings will generate criticism—and I welcome it. Given my background as a player, coach and scout, I may view players in a much different light than others. While I love players with flashy tools, I am not blinded by them. I don’t just look at stats; I scrutinize a hitter’s swing as much as I do a pitcher’s mechanics. What I’m trying to say is, I’m highly critical.
My Top 50 has been an enormous undertaking to which I have dedicated an obscene amount of time. Therefore, I want to hear from you, the readers. Please feel free to contact me with any questions, comments or criticism.
