House of Shlain: Organizational Top-10 Lists: AL

This article is part of our House of Shlain series.

"Ships that pass in the night and speak each other in passing, only a signal shown and a distant voice in the darkness; So on the ocean of life, we pass and speak one another, only a look and a voice, then darkness again and a silence." - Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Prospect lists can be a lot of fun. I enjoy reading and writing them as much as the next guy, but too much of a good thing is still too much of a thing. Today I've organized top 10 lists for each of the 15 American League teams and I'll be doing the same for the National League later this week as well, but I'd be remiss if I didn't express a little bit of caution with these lists. Enjoy them all you want this week because things are going to change. Even since I last ranked 200 prospects just two weeks ago my opinions and rankings have changed a bit as I noticed myself contradicting that list with some rankings here (Mason Williams over Gary Sanchez for one). That doesn't make the two-week old list a bad list, it just means something changed (be it the prospect's stock or my opinion). Prospect lists are a snapshot, a moment in time. Two ships passing in the night.
