Initial Top 100 SP Rankings

Ray posted his Top 100 SP Rankings here and I wanted to offer my rankings as well as we head into the new year. I'm aggressive on a few guys and might consider reigning in the rankings of guys like Sale, Verlander, and Hamels but for now I'm comfortable with where they stand. Feel free to off your thoughts on the comments below or reach out on Twitter (@BrianCreagh)
