Default What is the top 10 prospects

How do you see our top 10 prospects go after we got Flowers & Lillibridge last night...

my top 10

1 Beckham
2 Poerda
3 Flowers
4 Viciedo
5 Richard
6 Allen
7 Getz
8 Lillibridge
9 Shelby
10 Danks

I believe we are probably rated around 15th now

I would put them like this:

1 Beckham
2 Flowers
3 Poreda
4 Viciedo
5 Allen
6 Getz
7 Morel
8 Lillibridge
9 Shelby
10 Danks

This still isn't a great group, especially in depth, but we've moved from the bottom 2 or 3 to around the middle of the pack.

We also have a few other guys from the 2008 draft that will likely end up hopping in there. Things look a lot better than they did a year ago.

Depending on how Viciedo goes, he could easily end up being at the top of the list, as well.

I think you mean McCulloch. He sucks. Bad year in the minors last year.

There is zero chance Lillibridge is in our top 10. The guy went from top 10 Braves prospect graded as a B before the year to on the outside of the top 25 and now graded lower than a C+. Maybe he bounces back, but hes a poor man Chris Getz at this point.

I am still not overly excited by this group. Its much improved, but we have a relief pitcher as a our top pitching prospect, and no pitching prospect who anyone thinks is a front of the rotation calibur pitcher.

How is it lame? It's not the basic initials like OC or first letter of the first name and first three of the last like A-Row. I personally like it.

Roll with it if it makes ya feel good .

As far as our pitching prospects, hopefully by this time next year Dexter Carter will be in the top 10, with Daniel Hudson hovering around it, and John Ely/Jack Egbert having rebound seasons.
