As I looked at the list, there was a few things that caught my attention. First, the Tribe did at least as well and probably better than our AL Central competitors. Second, all Cleveland prospects on the list are from AA/AAA so they are close to ML ready which cannot be said for the rest of the AL Central. We did this without any of our #1 choices from 2006/7/8 yet all three made Tony's top 10 list and several others including BAs. I think two of the four will lose prospect status this year along with at least two others. Even so, next year may have more Tribe prospects in the top 100.

definately ... guys like Rondon, De La Cruz, Mills and maybe Chisenhall have a chance to get in (if they continue their current development).

All in all, I think it's a very agressive list. I don't agree with all of the picks, but it's certainly an interesting ranking.

Certainly seems to confirm the overall poster sentiments here about having a relatively strong farm system. When fans get together on a forum, they can sometimes lose perspective in how the organization compares to others. This was a good external validation.
