Thanks for posting. You have to be up early to beat Jaypers at this sort of thing! First thoughts...

Too Low: My Guys
Too High: CJ Edwards

Hmm..initial thoughts:

HUGE gap between Meadows (89) and C. Frazier (36)..

Gausman in top 10??

Urias seems high too, but i'm definitely intrigued to see this kids potential!

Curious to hear Jaypers thoughts on how Prospectus and BA's list typically differ.

Thoughts.....

1) Walker over Bradley as #1 pitcher? I don't strongly disagree, just seems to go against most other prospect resources

2) Not sure I agree with Yordano Ventura being ahead of Jonathan Gray, Mark Appel, or Robert Stephenson

3) Hedges at 18 just seems absurdly high

4) Who the f%# is Chi Chi Gonzalez?

I trust BP more than I do anything else lately, they have really come into their own with scouting and research.

I can answer the Meadows thing, Parks isnt a huge Meadows guy, never has been. I will provide more details when I get to them.

Kevin Gausman is very possibly a top 10 prospect in baseball, can make an argument he is the best or 2nd best pitcher in the minors. Some people dont love Walker.

Sano was lower than I thought, other than that I like this list.

They are only separated by 3 spots, Gausman/Walker/Bradley so its not that big of a jump

Jason Parks = biggest Hedges lover in all of baseball, and he loves Ventura too.

This was my exact thought at first glance.

True. That certainly stood out. And although i'm still new to this prospecting thing, I still think Stephenson is one of the best valued chrome autos out there.

4) Who the f%# is Chi Chi Gonzalez?
haha, i said that with about 4 different names!

No. He'll just tell us that BP is junk and all that matters is the BA list.

But we both know that he'll be doing it with tears streaming down his face and falling poetically onto the keyboard.

He viciously rides CJ Edwards jock, and BP has him at 81

Dude strikes out A LOT, and might need Tommy John surgery before it's all said and done. I don't have an issue with him dropping out of the top 10, but I think I am lower on him than most.

He should probably be higher but not everyone is buying him as an elite pitching prospect.

Haven't seen him outside top 7 on any other list. No TJ surgery

He very well may not need TJ, but a lot of people that do end up getting it started out saying that they wouldn't need it.

I like the list a lot, but why is B. Ham so high? In my opinion, he is already proved he will be a threat to deal with in the majors.

Sano:
The real question is will he hit 45HR's in the minors this year or be with the Twins by July at age 20?

Not only is he at 81...he's like the 30th ranked RHP and he called MLB's list crap because he wasn't in the top 3.
