Nah, as a college kid I'd rather not spend $28 on an annual book about prospects. He does post previews on his blog that layout what a player profile looks like. It's very in depth.

Opinions...*******s...stink

Sickels is far from an insider. Most of the guys he is evaluating are players he has NEVER SEEN.

"He, like the other Sox prospects, has a chance at being decent utility player. But he will definitely have the finest set of sideburns on the AA Birmingham team, bar-none."

Well a lot of these prospect-rating writers cut players off after a certain number of ABs in the Majors, so since Lillibridge was with Atlanta much of the year, Sickels may not consider him a prospect using his criteria.

He lists Lillibridge in the Others section, so I guess he just has him outside the top 20.

This is a revised list from Baseball America print edition (issue #0902 - January 12-25, 2009)

1. Gordon Beckham, SS - The #8 overall pick in the 2008 draft out of Georgia led NCAA Division I with 28 homers last spring that concluded with an appearance in the College World Series.
2. Dayan Viciedo, 3B - The Cuban defector compares to the Giants' first baseman Angel Villalona as a power prospect, but with better defense.
3. Aaron Poreda, LHP - The power lefty's strong Arizona fall league performance could help him make the big league staff.
4. Tyler Flowers, C - Freed from being stuck behind Brian McCann, Flowers topped the AFL with 12 homers but his catching skills are suspect.
5. Clayton Richards, LHP - Many White Sox fans were hoping the lefthander would get a postseason start in place of Vasquez.
6. Brandon Allen, 1B - He showed off impressive power by homering twice off David Price in his first Double-A game.
7. Jordan Danks, OF - John's little brother is best athlete in the White Sox system.
8. Brent Lillibridge, SS - With 2008 rookie star Alexei Ramirez moving to shortstop, Lillibridge will get a chance to compete for the second-base job.
9. Chris Getz, 2B/SS/OF - Speaking of second base competitions, Getz is in the mix as well, though he must recover from a broken wrist.
10. John Shelby, OF - The son of the former big leaguer had 15 homers and 33 steals last year.
