Here’s the list. Shelby Miller, the only Cardinals prospect, comes in at 38.

How does Josh Vitters keep showing up in the top 50 of these lists (or even the top 100)? Seriously???
Brett Wallace at #44, sounds about right–ranked lower than he has been on other lists.
Agree on Wallace. Now that its obvious he is not a thirdbase man, his stick doesn’t carry as much. He is more shawn casey mold…which is still really good.
Love that Miller is getting such a high ranking. Its great we have a high ceiling pitcher. Hopefully we bring him along well and he can get lucky and avoid injury.
Despite not making the rankings I feel very confident we will see Lynn and Garcia in the major league rotation at some point in the next few years. Those guys will be able to replace Penny/Lohse and hopefully form a great core with Wainwright and Carp.
In general I think highly of BP and Kevin Goldstein, but they do have their biases, notably that nothing good can come out of the NL Central. One would expect, all else equal, that there would be more guys from this division on this list than from any other, between the fact that it’s the largest division in baseball, and the comparatively high draft slots that the Central teams have had recently (let’s face it, the Central teams generally haven’t been very good). Instead, Central teams have the fewest representatives on this list, tied with the NL West, which has fewer teams. For that matter, the NL as a whole has fewer in the top 101 (44 vs. 57), despite the same things about number of teams, draft slots, etc., holding true for the league as a whole.
Kevin works hard at trying to understand what’s happening in ALL the farm systems — which I cannot say for every net.analyst, even some at BP — and calling ‘em as he sees ‘em. Nevertheless, I can’t help but wonder where Lynn and Garcia would be showing up if they were in, say, Seattle’s system, or Oakland’s or Boston’s.
I just hyperventilated and passed out when I read this.
