An uber Top 100

The Top 100 season is more or less behind us, with most everyone having put out their version of the list. Some have even put out some version of what I’m going to list below, which is a composite list, smooshing together all of the lists to come up with a consensus ranking.

There are so many lists out there these days, but I’ve decided to limit the uber-100 (plus) to five lists: Ours at MLBPipeline.com (duh); Baseball America; Keith Law at ESPN (subscription needed); Baseball Prospectus, courtesy of Jason Parks; and FanGraphs, from Marc Hulet.

Rather than assign points, I used an average ranking. Anyone not on a list got a 101 ranking.

Some notes:

  • 70 players appeared on all 5 lists. Another 11 appeared on 4 of the 5, 18 were on 3 of the 5.
  • I did not include the three guys on BA’s list who aren’t eligible for ours (Masahiro Tanaka, Josey Abreu, Carlos Martinez), there were 135 total prospects mentioned on a list somewhere.
  • The biggest differences in our list from average, in terms of us having a guy higher on the list than the average: Allen Webster (+41.4), Lance McCullers Jr (+34.4) and Jake Odorizzi (+24)
  • The biggest differences between us and  the average, with us having a guy lower down on our list: Matt Wisler (-28.2), J.P. Crawford (-25.8) and Braden Shipley (-25).
  • There was unanimity only on the top two guys, Byron Buxton and Xander Bogaerts. Four of the five lists had Oscar Taveras at No. 3. The first 62 names did appear on all five rankings.

Food for thought. The list is 135 deep, and I didn’t do anything in particular to break ties. Here it is:
