Rangers All Decade (2000-2009) Top 10, #2





Mark Teixeira is the top prospect of the decade for the Rangers. Congratulations to him. I'm sure he is ecstatic about receiving this honor.

A recap on the background for this top 10... 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 prospects on the Top 10 lists, these are the ones that have turned out the best. For example, Joey Votto is ahead of Jay Bruce on the Reds list, and Chris Young is ahead of Brad Wilkerson on the Nats list. If you wish to emulate BAs approach, whatever that is, go ahead. Vote in any way you wish, but it would be good to hear some of your rationale.

All of BAs Ranger top 10 lists.

I've added Justin Smoak and Travis Hafner. Justin, of course, has yet to play in the majors, and so probably wouldn't be on the list for BA. Hafner was never on a Rangers' top 10 list, and I'm interested to see if he -- or any other non top 10s I've forgotten about (list them if you think of any) -- was better than BA was willing to give them credit for in our collective memory.
