Astros put four on Top 100 list

Tonight MLB.com unveiled its Top 100 Prospect List for 2013. The Astros had four players on said list:

#27: Jon Singleton
#30: Carlos Correa
#57: George Springer
#89: Jarred Cosart

Interestingly enough, if we look back to the 2012 MLB.com Top 100 Prospect List, the Astros had 

#25: Jon Singleton
#34: Carlos Correa
#48: George Springer
#76: Jarred Cosart
#77: Delino DeShields, Jr. 

Comparing the two, Correa and Springer advanced their rankings, while Singleton and Cosart dropped, and DeShields dropped off the list entirely. 

In 2011, MLB.com only listed 50 top prospects, and the Astros didn't place anybody on the list. Only Jon Singleton was ranked at all, and he was #32. Matt Dominguez, acquired in the Carlos Lee trade (which I still have a hard time believing ACTUALLY HAPPENED), was #35. Both were, of course, in the Phillies' and Marlins' systems at the time.

So...yay!

I'd be real interested in hearing the author of that list explain their reasoning on DDJ. Almost certainly has to be an entirely different individual from the one who compiled the 2012 list.
