EDIT - BA was in the BA Top 100 two consecutive seasons, as well, but I am confident that by the time he reaches Chicago*, Hawkins will have surpassed his pedigree.
* assuming he doesn't get traded
BA was #51 in '06 and #37 in '05 so you would be correct. Can't believe he was so highly guarded. There was not even a stint where he hit in the ML.
Crede was #94 in '02, #36 in '01 and #96 in '00

Flowers got busted of PEDs shortly before the Sox acquired him.
