Um yeah, that's just what happens with prospects. Even the very top ones fail pretty routinely. You're aware getting 3 good careers out of 7 is actually an insanely high success rate, right?

Here's the BA Top 10 Prospects for 2000:

1) Rick Ankiel, St. Louis
2) Pat Burrell, Philadelphia
3) Corey Patterson, Cubs
4) Vernon Wells, Toronto
5) Nick Johnson, Yankees
6) Ruben Mateo, Texas
7) Sean Burroughs, San Diego
8) Rafeal Furcal, Atlanta
9) Ryan Anderson, Seattle
10) John Patterson, Arizona

1 decent player out of the Top 10. 3 of them I can't even remember.
