Prospects, Prospects Everywhere

A little while ago, we parsed the Keith Law/ESPN.com Top 100 prospects list. Now here comes Kevin Goldstein with the Baseball Prospectus list.

In case you'd forgotten, here's what Law said were the Sox/Yankee prospects in the Top 100:
  • 7: Lars Anderson
  • 46: Austin Jackson
  • 52: Michael Bowden
  • 81: Nick Hagadone
  • 83: Jesus Montero
  • 90: Junichi Tazawa
  • 94: Daniel Bard
  • 95: Andrew Brackman

 Compare and contrast to Goldstein's list:

  • 17: Lars Anderson
  • 31: Michael Bowden 
  • 38: Jesus Montero
  • 46: Austin Jackson 
  • 87: Josh Reddick 
  • 97: Daniel Bard

  • Sounds reasonable. I like a lot of the Yankees’ prospects, but I am not surprised only two made it to the list. I don’t think it is really fair to add Brackman to that list though, there has got to be other prospects that have actually played in pros that could have been considered.

  • Of Bard (listed twice) and Melancon (not listed), the latter has a bigger MLB impact this year. The difference is control.
    I wonder if the Sox are holding off on re-signing Bay to see if Reddick emerges this year.

  • I fear Austin Jackson is more hype than legit. At best he’s Mike Cameron.
