I've been accumulating top prospect rankings from various sources across the Internet since 2007. Each year, I'd take the rankings of different sites and organize them within a master Excel workbook so readers could compare one list to the next. At first I prepared the worksheets for a handful of friends and colleagues, but before long, dozens of readers and analysts (including many here at BP) were asking to download the compilations.
This year, instead of sending the 2010-2011 compilation out by email, I've decided to make the file available right here at Baseball Prospectus.
While I fully endorse the rankings of our own Kevin Goldstein, and don't believe anyone really needs more analysis than that provided by KG, we at BP also believe that knowledge equals power. The more information we have, the better.
I have linked below to the new top prospects compilation file. The Excel workbook contains several tabs at the bottom representing each of the league’s divisions as well as a tab for top 100 lists and positional analysis. My goal is to update the file at least once a week through April.
If you find any errors or omissions, would like to recommend a ranking source, or have any other comments or suggestions, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
