24 hours away

That’s right, folks. We’re just about 24 hours away from the big Top 50 prospects show on the MLB Network (8 p.m. ET, also simulcast on MLB.com/Live). Exciting stuff — I’m at the airport now waiting to fly home to Pittsburgh after what I think (I’ll let you guys be the judge tomorrow) was a very successful taping of the show. I have to say, working with Greg Amsinger and John Hart was a real treat. Hope you guys feel that came off, because I had a blast.

Anyway, got a few more guest rankings to try and get through here. Tonight, we’ll let Dustin Mattison from The Cardinal Nation (and, of course on Twitter @dustin_mattison) give it a whirl. He went 40 deep, for which he gets no extra credit, but I will run all 40. So here goes:

1.     
Stephen Strasburg
2.     
Jason Heyward
3.     
Buster Posey
4.     
Brian Matusz
5.     
Jesus Montero
6.     
Desmond Jennings
7.     
Aroldis Chapman
8.     
Neftali Feliz
9.     
Madison Bumgarner
10.  Carlos Santana
11.  Christian Friedrich
12.  Justin Smoak
13.  Pedro Alvarez
14.  Casey Kelly
15.  Mike Stanton
16.  Michael Taylor
17.  Wade Davis
18.  Dustin Ackley
19.  Aclides Escobar
20.  Brett Wallace
21.  Dominick Brown
22.  Jeremy Hellickson
23.  Jhoulys Chacin
24.  Martin Perez
25.  Kyle Drabek
26.  Fernando Martinez
27.  Chris Carter
28.  Mike Montgomery
29.  Tyler Matzek
30.  Lonnie Chisenhall
31.  Matt Moore
32.  Dan Hudson
33.  Aaron Hicks
34.  Ryan Westmoreland
35.  Todd Frazier
36.  Jenrry Mejia
37.  Brett Lawrie
38.  Starlin Castro
39.  Jarrod Parker
40.  Aaron Crow

A lot of different names in there, which I love. And a vote for Stras atop the list, the first one like that we’ve had here in a while.

OK, gotta make a run to the smoothy stand before I board the plane. Random celebrity sighting here at Newark Airport: Former US Senator and NBA Hall of Famer Bill Bradley.
