It’s a sure sign of spring when you start seeing everyone post their top prospect lists, whether it’s an overall Top 50, Top 100 or a team’s top 10 list. So in the coming days/weeks (depending on how much I can get myself to post here), I’m going to show you what’s out there. For now, here are glimpses at what a pair of team-related blogs are doing.
Seth Stohs, author of the excellent Twins blog SethSpeaks.net, has been running a poll among Twins readers to determine their top prospects. They’re currently up to No. 25 on TwinkieTown. Anthony Swarzak has the top spot, though Seth acknowledges that if the Santana trade does indeed go through, some serious reshuffling will have to occur.
Joe Aiello at ViewFromtheBleachers.com, a Cubs blog, consulted with a variety of those who follow the Minors (full disclosure, I’m one of them) to come up with a Cubbies Top 10 list.
Looked like there was a split between Geovany Soto and Josh Vitters in terms of first-place votes, but it was the advanced catcher who took the top spot over the recent draftee.
