I've been saying, writing and tweeting about spring training statistics being pretty much meaningless, which is why you won't see many notable changes in my Top 100 when it comes to established but currently struggling vets such as Ryan Braun or Roy Halladay. The games don't matter. When they do, the top players will perform like it.

However, that doesn't mean I haven't made any rankings changes, because I have, for various reasons. Injuries have, of course, played a role for some (Chase Utley, for example), as well as potential adjustments to lineup or role. Plus, I'm always willing to learn new facts and information that could alter my opinions, and in some cases have done so.
