There are a few surprises for me, at least. NO CHRISTIAN VILLANUEVA?!?!? What has Lake done to warrant him moving up from the old rankings. I had never even heard of Hatley before midseason. Why is he ahead of Duane Underwood? Amaya hit incredibly well this season; I think he should be higher. Glad to see we have 5 Top 100s, though, and Szczur can't be that far off.

I don't think that Lake and McNutt should still be that high, thought the shouldnt be completely off, and while Marcus Hatley seems like a good enough reliever, he really shouldn't be above Paniaqua, should be in the top 15.
McNutt's way to high at this point. The fumes of 2010 have have faded, and at this point he's more of a 20-25 guy, Whitenack, though coming off TJS might be a bit high at 12. At this point, he might also be more back of the top 20, or top 21-25.
I also don't quite agree with Marco Hernandez and Torreyes falling out of the top 20 despite fairly weak seasons, although both picked up in the 2nd half, although that could more be viewed more as a result of our systems depth rather than an indictment on them.
Another guy form whom I still have some hope, depsite the fact that he's been largely forgotten is Reggie Golden, though it's understandable that he was taken off the list after his season ending after 7 games.

And Hatley? I suppose he is close to maybe being on the Iowa - Wrigley shuttle next year, but geeze. What's his ceiling, like Blake Parker - maybe? At the expense of Torreyes, Marco Hernandez, Underwood, and Villaneuva? Granted they are further away, but...

Got Villanueva in at 7 now. this may be man on the moon for some of you but just thought I would update the thread.
Seven is about where I'll have him as well. He'll be in the six to ten range, probably closer to six than ten, but beyond that it's tough to say just yet.
