    The comment about lack of depth after the top 15 made me laugh. What system clearly has more depth than the White Sox?

    Low-level guys in specific other systems get a ratings boost simply because they play for a writer's favorite team. For the same reason, Rutherford and Cease probably dropped simply because they were traded from extremely popular clubs to a team with no fans. It's a joke, which is why I focus more on tiers, waves, and determining who ISN'T a legit prospect.

    Highly doubt more than 3 other systems have that kind of depth.

    List doesn't even include the guys who should get 45+ grades for the first time this year (Zavala, Sosa, Hamilton, etc.).

    Tatis at #9. Sad. Worst deal eva. Bigly.
    Indeed, Rutherford went from 36 at mid-season to not rated, and Cease went from 83 to not rated. If they hadn't been traded, they'd still both be top 100. Robert dropped from 45 to 58, even though guys in front of him graduated.

    Where's Handar when you need him?
