With CBSSports.com's Pete Prisco set to drop his list of the top-100 players, we thought it'd be appropriate also to grade the top-10 front offices. You know, the people who actually put those top players in position to perform all the wondeful feats Prisco is writing about.
The top five or six are relatively easy to predict (and you can shift the order around a bit and not be incorrect), but there are some front offices in this year's list that would have been nowhere near it last season. Which is why we continue to give the newcomers a healthy dose of skepticism and why we give extra credit to those franchises that are continuously near the top of the standings every season.
After all, it's not just the players and the coaches that make a team successful. It's the scouts, the player personnel evaluators, the general managers and the owners. That's why we recognize the top-10 front offices here.
