    MLB Pipeline Top 100 released:

    https://twitter.com/MiLB

    So far for Braves. Acuna's probably all that's left but 8 in top 100 is impressive.

    97- Austin Riley.
    83- Max Fried.
    53- Kolby Allard.
    51- Ian Anderson.
    49- Luiz Gohara.
    31- Mike Soroka.
    30- Kyle Wright.
    2- Ronald Acuna.

    I think that list is better than BA's top 100 for the Braves. Only minor issue would be Gohara being a tad low.

    Same, i'd have Gohara around 30-35. But pretty good overall.

    We have the 8 pick so that’ll be a top 100 prospect I’m sure. AA needs to focus on getting us a high comp pick.

    Looking at the prospect list we were just 1 pick away from Senzel and he’s ranked 7th overall, and while I love Wright, Royce Lewis who most thought would be there at 5 is ranked at 20. Our farm would look a lot better with those 2 guys.

    Agree on Senzel, but Wright would have been my number 1 pick regardless of who was on the board. Id have taken Gore over Lewis as well.

    Idk. Why is Moniak over Pache? And guys like Pint/Groome/Baz over Wentz?

    Wilson will likely be there around mid season I’d think?

    MLB never drops guys recently drafted by all that much. Always give them a benefit that their first full year is an adjustment period. If those guys struggle again they will plummet

    I think there is a tendency to look at how many guys each team has and if people are on the bubbLe the evaluators will say the braves have 8 alreadg. They don't need more guys at the end of the list.

    I just went back and looked at Fangraph's top Braves prospects list from Dan Farnsworth in 2015, and it is still just as hilariously bad as it was back then. I can't believe that someone got paid to say that John Gant was a 60 FV prospect and Ryan Weber was a 55 hahaha

    Because the first three have TOR stuff?

    I'm high on Wentz, but let's not kid ourselves - Pint and Groome were in the conversation to go #1 when they were drafted, and Baz was widely credited with the best stuff for a high school arm in his class (and touches 98 now with plenty of room to add).

    Wentz has a chance to be very good, but his ceiling just isn't what those three could be.
    The FO that needlessly promoted him early knew what they were doing and are paid to do this. We aren't, so we can't know more than them. Correction....they used to be paid to do this..

    I also don't see the reasoning behind signing DK over CK, and I'm going to assume the Braves can only afford one of them. Like Bumgarner, DK would be an improvement in the rotation, but it seems like CK would be a bigger improvement in the BP.

    Wait a second - I thought FanGraphs was the "be-all, end-all" source for prospects...well, them and Keith Law.

    There you go, thinking again.

    It never works out for you.
