Keith Law ranks the top 100 prospects; Jonathan Mayo ranks the top 50

Jan 28, 2010, 5:15 PM EDT

‘Tis the season.  Last night MLB.com’s Jonathan Mayo released his Top 50 prospect list. Today Keith Law doubles down and gives you his top 100.  They agree that Jason Heyward and Stephen Strasburg are numbers one and two respectively, and they both have Buster Posey at four, but as you might imagine, they diverge from there.

Both Law and Mayo show their work here, providing a summary of the plusses and minuses, but Law’s summaries are a bit more thorough.  Both have links to video so you can see a lot of the guys he talks about in action.

If you’re like me, you’ll take these lists, memorize them, and then wildly, wildly overdraft these dudes for your fantasy league, convincing yourself and your mocking competitors that you’re building for the future.  I guess what I’m saying is that you should just buy the Rotoworld Guide and call it a day

Stay thirsty, my friends.

    Heyward,Strasburg and Posey you say. They’re going to be in my team.

    Gone are Johnny Damon, Milky Cabrera, and H. Matsui. Aren’t these the fellows who heavily helped propell the Yankees to a World Series Championship? The brass can’t come up with the cash for these proven ballplayers, old or young, hurt or unhurt? Individually they’ll just come back to give the Yankees nightmares.
    That new Yankee outfield is going to need a lot of work. To me, and forgive me, but I think that new outfield is a couple of steps down, not up. The pitching staff also appears less than “Redsoxy.”
    Brian Cashman, what are you thinking? Budget cuts? How about cutting the enormous price of Yankee tickets if you’re going to give us a team lacking that stellar touch? I’m having a hard time psyching up for the upcoming season. Remember when the Red Sox systematically started dismantling their championship team after winning it all? The Yanks may be doing the same. Hope they don’t regret it. Whatever happens, I’ll always be a Yankee fan.
