Haha I don't know if you're joking, but if you're not I'll save the extra post and say Dunn is a Reds outfielder who was called up at mid-season last year and absolutely exploded.

From TSN Fantasy Source:
The question is not whether Dunn will be a good major leaguer, it's how good he will be. He hit 32 homers in 350 minor league at-bats last season, and the production was just as good at the major league level. Combine his "Mark McGwire-like" power with his ability to hit .300 and steal 15 bases a season, and you have yourself a bona fide fantasy stud.

I agree, up until the Twins thing. I don't think they were a fluke per se, BUT, I don't think that they will do as good as they did. They WILL be number two, but just out of defualt, really.

well there is no doubt in my mind they will be # 2, but last years start wont happen again, they dont have lawton, and as you saw last year, when they traded him, they went downhill. he was a speedster, they who may have been the key to most of those wins

All the future White Sox...

12. Joe Borchard, OF, Chicago White Sox
Best bet to go Adam Dunn in 2002.

Patience will determine how he truly turns out to be. Spend more time with Frank in ST!

30. Joe Crede, 3B, Chicago White Sox
Should grab everyday job soon and keep it.

Notice almost all scouts have him high on their prospect lists... except the Sox... darn.

31. Corwin Malone, LHP, Chicago White Sox
Needs more polish, lots of potential

We need more capable LHP in the bigs

36. Jon Rauch, RHP, Chicago White Sox
Closer to David Cone than Randy Johnson.

David Cone has a 3.44 career ERA... I will take that.

55. Tim Hummel, 2B, Chicago White Sox
Ray Durham's replacement in 2003

Poor man's Jeff Kent?

Scouting your neighbors...

4. Mark Prior, RHP, Chicago Cubs
Might be better than Beckett

Sometimes, you may get lucky when you suck...

16. Juan Cruz, RHP, Chicago Cubs
Concern about health, not talent

He pitched two horrible games against the Barons last year. Expect the same in the bigs!

23. Hee Seop Choi, 1B, Chicago Cubs
Don't get down on this guy, he's good

Make or break year after a down, injury filled season.

37. Bobby Hill, 2B, Chicago Cubs
The best leadoff prospect around

Boras' boy.

80. Carlos Zambrano, RHP, Chicago Cubs
Next we'll find out Zambrano is 28. Still has good fastball

95. Nic Jackson, OF, Chicago Cubs
Patience will determine if he's Bob Abreu or Juan Encarnacion

He played A ball last season even though he was drafted out of college.

its amazing to see that Hee Seop Choi guy ranked so highly. ive been hearing he was coming up since 3 years ago, and he hasnt made one appearance as far as i can remember, and i think he did pretty bad in st last year or the year before.

He will end up being a Don Baylor casualty.

The first game against the Barons, Cruz shouldn't have been in. The previous start, he was drilled in his right wrist with a batted ball. I don't think he made it out of the 2nd inning against B'ham. Regardless, 2 bad starts doesn't matter. His stuff is to die for, mid 90's fastball with nasty movement, filthy 83-85 slider, and the best changeup in the Cubs system. 3 plus pitches=frontline starter, see Jon Rauch.

Choi's fine. His numbers prior to the injury are frightening, .306-43-165 in his previous 750 at-bats. 80 raw scale power (20-80 scouting scale). When healthy, he'll hit, I'm not worried, I see him as a legit minor league player of the year candidate.

As for Nic Jackson, he played out the season as a 21 year-old, which is the median for high A-ball. He was drafted after his junior year at Richmond...he missed half the year with a wrist injury. He was named by the Florida State League's coaches as the most exciting player in the league, ahead of some guys named Blalock, Morneau, and Beckett.

3 years ago? He was signed during the 99 season, so it'd be a tad much expecting him to join the club out of a South Korean high school... When healthy, one of the best hitting prospects in all of baseball. Enormous power, decent plate discipline, short level swing.

i wasn't too sure, that was just what i thought, i knew i was probably wrong, i mean come on, how often do us sox fans follow cubs baseball, especially their farm system. i dont even like reading what cubs fans have to say, its just too bothersome

I hope not, the wrist injury may be a blessing in disguise. If the Cubs fail to reach the playoffs, MacPhail has no choice but to fire Fatboyslim, and the youngsters will play.

sack Baylor

I think this list is good, Mark Prior is a little high there but hey no list is perfect. I was really dissapointed with the Baseball Prospectus list this year the last couple years I think it was pretty excellent.

I live in DSM and get to catch the Iowa Cubs all the time and Choi could be good. He was hurt pretty much all year and when health only had a couple games that hit the ball well. This year will be intereting to watch since he should finally be healthy. He was bigger in person that I thought he would be.

He'll be good, but never as good as Konerko.

ill probably be watching some young cub prospects playing this spring, or next fall, the lansing lugnuts are an A team for the cubs, and well, id rather go to their games than our schools, since we suck, and there arent any seats at our baseball field
