REDO: Rangers' All Decade (2000-2009) Top 10 Prospects, #1




BA just completed the NL Top 10 and now are doing the All Decade top 10 for each team. They ranked the players from their top 10 lists to compile an All Decade Top 10.  It appears their All Decade lists are meant to rank top 10 prospects that have gone on to have careers in the majors.  In other words, this isn't a list of the most highly touted prospects regardless of whether they made it majors.... of all the Top 10 lists, these are the ones that have turned out the best.

 

I thought it would be fun to do a community one before they get to the Rangers, which will be a while, of course, and since we're all thinking about current prospects, it seems like a good time to consider all decade prospects (2000-2009). It doesn't matter that a prospect is in another organization. For example, Ricky Nolasco is a top 10 All Decade prospect for the Cubs (3) and Marlins (8). Also, again, these are prospects who have actually done things in the majors. So, for example, Strasburg isn't in the Nats top 10 all decade prospects.

 

In the comments, well comment, but also add folks you think need to be added to the list AND tell me who should comprise a list of Best and Worst draft pick. The picked player must have signed a contract with the Rangers.

 

Here is all of the BA Rangers' top 10 prospect lists.

 

A couple of notes....

Andrus is #9 on the Braves All Decade Top 10.  Adrian Gonzalez is #4 on the Marlins.  Nelson Cruz is #9 on the Brewers.  Chris Young is #2 on the Pirates and #4 on the Nationals.

Travis Hafner and Nelson Cruz were never ranked in the Rangers Top 10 lists.

Best draft pick list, so far:

Teixeira
Danks
Kinsler
Pena
Blalock
Hafner

Worst draft pick list, so far:

Meyer
Mayberry
Heard

 

The poll has 25 of the players from the 10 BA Rangers Top 10s of the decade that have done something in the majors.
