      I'd say a couple of those guys aren't prospects anymore... None the less, fun pole.
      WAR? Prove it!

        Long term projection, or biggest impact type of thing? Because I am pretty sure Ian Kennedy will not become as Kernshaw, but Ian Kenney is definitly closer.

          Yes? Are you so sure?? I'm not fun. Maybe you are?

            I picked the BoSox kids. They had better prove to be absolute studs considering the Sox chose them over Johan.

              Where are you getting this list from? Longoria and Bruce would have been my first two choices no matter what, but the absence of Matt Wieters, David Price, Travis Snider, Andrew McCutchen, among others, is confusing. And why Kennedy but not Hughes? Why Soto and Adenhart at all?

                  Were you expecting any? Martinez is their best, and he's generally considered a fringe-top 20 guy.

                      The other pitchers listed are in a different league than Kennedy though. IMO, he has the potential to be a nice mid-rotation guy, but almost no shot to be a top of the rotation guy with his stuff. The other guys listed, along with guys like Price, Porcello etc. all have to stuff to be a #1 or 2, if they reach their full potential.

                      That said, I'll take Longoria and Kershaw, with Bruce in a very close 3rd.

                        Oh. That explains it. Still, Kennedy isn't close to the rest of the guys in this group.

                          Prospect is a defined word, and all these players are defined as one.

                            I chose only 15... that's why others aren't on the list. It's only my choise.
                            Ok, Wieters is 11th, Price is 20th,, Snider is 37th, McCutchen is 36th... on official BPL.
                            Ian Kennedy is 6th on the BPL for Spring 2008. Hughes isn't prospect anymore.

                            Soto? I think he is going to have an excellent season. Is he prospect!?
                            I think, yes. He's too much underestimated, IMO.
                            #77 Geovany Soto -- Chicago Cubs
                            (MLB) 18G .389, 6(2B), 3HR, 36RBI, 5BB, 14K
                            (AAA) 110G, .353, 31(2B), 3(3B), 26HR, 109RBI, 53BB, 94K

                            Adenhart? Maybe he didn't deserve a room. Ok.

                              yes, it's a little bit surprise. But the first Mets on the official list is Fer.Martinez on 27th place!!
