Interesting how different they are from the BP one:
46. SierraJuly 7, 2017 at 11:53 am #26910
I think they are definitely missing the boat on Sierra and Bader. They are top 100 guys.
I think Dakota Hudson should be #56b right there with Flaherty. Those two are the future.July 7, 2017 at 11:54 am #26911
For reference, Delvin Perez was on the Baseball America list in the offseason just six months ago at #86
He was #79 on the BP list and #91 on the MLB list.
Now it seems like they are punishing him for not playing until short-season ball. That’s standard for a typical HS draft pick.July 7, 2017 at 12:29 pm #26917vegasjimParticipantPaid - Annual
So you have 6 different names making these 2 lists with 3 other guys: Hudson, Bader, and Perez who probably can and will show up in other lists. 9 guys with top 100 consideration is a deep group.July 7, 2017 at 12:42 pm #26921CariocaCardinalParticipantPaid - Monthly
Not standard for a first rounder or a top 100 prospect.July 10, 2017 at 3:47 pm #27247Derek ShoreParticipantPaid - Annual
Nice couple nuggets from BA on Sierra and Flaherty in today’s Top 100 chat:
John Manuel: We definitely talked Magneuris Sierra in our top 100 meeting. I think the question again was the impact; how much power is this guy going to have? He might wind up being a guy we were light on, because he can really run, can really defend and is showing bat-to-ball skills. He’s the kind of athlete that the game is trending toward, all-around guys. I hope that trend continues.
J.J. Cooper on Flaherty: His stuff has gotten a lot better. In the past, scouts have been concerned about the quality of his fastball, but he’s gotten stronger and has steadily added velocity, which has made everything play up. He’s a good mid-rotation starting prospect.His stuff keeps getting better. What was once a below-average fastball is now at least average to above-average.September 11, 2017 at 10:01 am #32742
Baseball America is announcing its season all-star teams by level. Surprisingly, no Cardinals at Triple-A, Double-A or high-A. I didn’t see links to the others yet.September 12, 2017 at 8:58 am #32801
Scott Hurst and Evan Mendoza made the SS-A team.September 12, 2017 at 8:59 am #32802
Cards were shut out from the Rookie level team.September 12, 2017 at 9:01 am #32803
Cards also have no reps on Class-A team.September 12, 2017 at 9:03 am #32804
C Ivan Herrera is the Cardinals’ lone rep on BA’s DSL All-Star Team.September 12, 2017 at 9:35 am #32809
That makes me laugh.September 12, 2017 at 9:56 am #32811bccranParticipant
Will be interesting to see the Top 20 prospects per league lists.September 13, 2017 at 12:33 pm #32896
I saw this elsewhere and wanted to share:
Here’s where the Cardinals have ranked in WAR from rookie players since 2010:

Re : baseball america
I stopped taking the league by league ones seriously when memphis couldnt get anyone in a league they dominated with a very young team.
Ba just refuses to rate cardinals well and pretty much has for yearsSeptember 13, 2017 at 2:40 pm #32907CariocaCardinalParticipantPaid - Monthly
I couldn’t find BA’s criteria. At times it appeared they took the guy with the best stats but there were times that they clearly didn’t.
Several Cards prospects split time between leagues thus probably not qualifying for consideration in either league. (Helsley, Flaherty, and O’Reilly specifically come to mind).September 16, 2017 at 7:37 am #33123
BA posted each team’s top 10 draft bonuses paid over time. Not only do the Cards have the lowest top bonus, their highest ones were years ago. A lot of misses among this group. An interesting comparison piece.
