BA released 51-100 of their Top 100 today:

http://www.baseballamerica.com/today/fe ... p100b.html

71. BRAD SNYDER, of, Indians
"He just carries himself differently. You see that maturity in his approach at the plate, in the field. Just everything he does commands your attention."
--Winston-Salem hitting coach Andy Tomberlin
ETA: 2007

53. JEREMY SOWERS, lhp, Indians
"He just commands all his pitches well and finds a way to get it done. Sometimes you don't know how he did it, but by that time you're walking back to the dugout shaking your head."
--Winston-Salem manager Chris Cron
ETA: 2006


Miller should be in the 40s and Marte in the 10-15 range.

Rest of the list is out today.

http://www.baseballamerica.com/today/features/060223top100c.html

14. ANDY MARTE, 3b, Indians
"Andy profiles as a guy who has the ability to hit in the middle of the lineup of a championship major league team. He has all the ingredients to be a special hitter."
--Braves farm director Dayton Moore


47. ADAM MILLER, rhp, Indians
“He went through a process to getting back to where he was, both in terms of velocity and command, but he wasn’t holding anything back late in the year. He’s a rare combination of power, intelligence and an advanced feel for pitching for a 21-year-old.”
--Indians farm director John Farrell

Consig,

IIRC, Miller was in BA's top 20 last year...was his drop due solely on the injury? I thought, after a somewhat shaky start in MV, he responded with a strong season.

Also, do players closer to their MLB ETA get better grades, on average...or is it a list on pure potential?

Adam Miller was #16 last year:

The drop does have a lot to do with the injury. They are still pretty high on him from some of the emails I have had back and forth with Kline and Callis.....but even though he is supposedly 100% recovered, he still had a down year last year.

And, I am not sure ETA makes all that much difference in the rankings. Most all of the Top 100 guys are established prospects who are in AA/AAA or who have an ETA to debut sometime in the next two years.
