    Two Nats listed, Dunn at 70 and Zimmerman at 100. Lovely.

    Discuss. Not the Nats. The list. :)

    Greinke at 4 based on half a serasonis absurd. Pablo Sandoval at 25 is flat-out morionic.

    Greinke has made steady progress to this point, so it isn't just based on this season. That said, No. 4 overall is still too high.

    Sandoval at No. 25 jumped out at me, too. He belongs on the list, maybe even in the top 60 or so. The guy is really good. Not top-25 good, but really good.

    You really think Greinke has been good just for the last four months?

    David Wright and Carl Crawford should be higher. Way higher than some of the guys they're under. Sizemore too. If he played in New York he'd be getting hype like Carl Beltran got in the playoffs with Houston. Shin Soo-Choo is still underrated.

    Likewise, you're telling me Adam Jones ISN'T one of the top 100? Disagree.

    As soon as I saw that you had posted on this thread, I immediately thought "Adam Jones." Damn, I'm good. :)

    I'm sure if you asked Joe, he has Greg Zaun number 101.

    If not, he's a complete fraud.

    No Pirates crack the top 100. Can't say I'm surprised.

    Interesting that he had the 4 AL 1Bs lumped together (broken only by Longoria) and went:
    Morneau
    Youkilis
    Texiera
    Cabrera

    I'd have to think a bit more for my ranking, but I don't think that would be it.

    Oh, and Grienke is too high. By waht argument can you put him over Lincecum?

    Who would make it if he did another 100?

    By his standards, would any GM in the league take Ibanez over Verlander? Wright? That's really overrating a half season.
