I think Honorable mention is way too low for Huston Street on that list.

Nope, still looking for Prior-type money last I heard.

Personally I thought that was hysterical when I read it.

I understand that he has electric stuff and pitched very well last year. But I still think relievers should be kept towards the bottom of the list.

Did you guys also notice that there were ZERO Flubbie prospects in the top 50? Methinks there are people with pitchforks and torches headed over to BP headquarters as we speak. (Notice no teal)

Yeah, I noticed that, too. Angel Guzman is their highest-rated prospect. I also noticed the Yankees have a pretty high prospect in Eric Duncan, 3B. I guess we won't be seeing him in pinstripes any time soon. Can you say "trade bait"?

Why in the world is Eric Duncan rated that highly? Shouldn't you actually have to play well, and play above A-ball to be rated that high? I don't get it? East Coast bias coming through or what?

Blasphemers! Everybody knows that Hendry is the best GM in baseball, while KW traded every good Sox prospect for Robbie Alomar!


For what it's worth, John Sickels opines that the cubs have zero "A" grade prospects. He ranks Guzman fourth in their system with a "B-" grade.

The whole Jared Weaver situation makes me sick. What are the chances of him becoming a solid major-league player anyways? It's no different than gambling...

Did Stephen Drew end up signing with the D-Backs? And I thought Eric Duncan got traded?

No, Drew hasn't signed yet. He's a Borass client and he's holding out for a Prior-sized contract. Eric Duncan was not a part of the Randy Johnson trade and he's still a member of the Yankees farm system.
