Cardinals have only three on the list, and one of them was signed today.

Isn't Acuna past the rookie threshold? Wow, Acuna has 4 cousins and one uncle who've played in MLB. I had no idea all those Escobars were related. Or are they using a broad definition of "cousin"?

Hou with 2 in the top 10 is probably pretty happy.

Red Sox fans: Hope you are cool with what you've got right now, because there is very, very little coming to the bigs anytime soon, and not much in the farm system to trade at the deadline.

The only Boston prospect on the list is an honorable mention who is out for the year: Jason Groome.

That said, the Red Sox have graduated an awful lot of talent in the last several years (Betts, Bradley, Benintendi, Bogaerts, Devers, Vazquez, Swihart, ERod, Lin etc.) and used other assets to get big talent (Kopech and Moncada for Sale; Espinoza for Pomeranz; Margot and Guerra for Kimbrel; etc.) The cupboard probably should be bare right now...

FanGraphs editorial meeting:

"Let's rank a bunch of prospects. Maybe, say, 130."

"Nah, that's not enough. Let's really be thorough."

"How about 132?"

"Whoah, whoah. Dial it back a little."
