    Who's your teams best prospects?

    Give me your favorite club and tell me who your best pitching and fielding prospects are, and when your team projects them being called up full time.

    For example i'm obviously a Red Sox fan, our 2 top prospects are Pitcher Clay Buckholz who was recently promoted to the AAA Pawtuckett Red Sox from AA Portland Sea Dogs, he's pitched fantasticly throughout his AA career and has only had one start at the AAA level. He's projected to be ready maybe by mid next season or if things continue to prgress maybe a 4th or 5th starter at the start of 08'.

    Our best fielding prospect is Jacoby Ellsbury, OF. Jacoby has played in Boston already this year for approx. 1 week in early July and showed signs of already being ready to be an everyday big leaguer. For those who aren't familiar with him, he's been compaired to Grady Sizemore and Johnny Damon, phenomainal speed, good OBP and his defense is very solid, his arm is average, but he makes up for it by catching balls that most would have to pick up and throw. Many Red Sox fans are calling for him to be brought back up to the Sox now, but the organization is making sure he gets plenty of playing time before he is very likely called back up by the end of August.

    Both Buckholz and Ellsbury are being heavily sought after by nearly every club that's trying to obtain prospects. Let's hear about your prospects.....Thanks everyone!

    lind litsch r mlb ready...wen u look at lind hes prolly a 20-25 homer and 80-90 rbis (or more depending on the lineup spot) and hits over 300...litsch is a control pitcher who throws alot of sinkers and relys heavily on his defence

    we also have ricky romero who for some reason has a blog on milb.com and projects to be a 3 starter or worse...hes a lefty

    other than that we have some B prospects and this year we drafted Brett Cecil who i think will be in our pen in 2 years minimum and 3 SSs who all project to play in other positions and are all better than solid...and a catcher who should be a good hitter and has a strong arm

    To clarify:

    FIELDING PROSPECTS
    Adam Lind (LF/DH)- Has been in the big leagues this year and was a call-up last year- projects to have a decent power bat with a relatively high average. Not much speed, mediocre defence. I personally think Garret Anderson- not tonnes of homers but good RBIs, average.

    Curtis Thigpen (C)- Athletic catcher, could be moved to other positions around the diamond to settle (1B, 2B). Projects to be a good hitter with solid defense. Just called up recently.

    Travis Snider (LF/RF/1B)- Drafted out of high-school last year, projects to be a great hitter. He is a big boy at 6'0", 245 pounds. I always think of him as a Matt Holliday type- good average and good power- could hit 35-40 homers in hit prime, bat .320. Still in single-A , but should have an easy time getting through the minors.

    notables- JP Arencibia(Power hitting catcher, average D, shades of Piazza), Eric Eiland (Drafted this year, projects as a possible 5-tool CF)

    PITCHING

    Jesse Litsch (SP)- Currently our 5th starter, deserves to be maybe third. As McJoe said "litsch is a control pitcher who throws alot of sinkers and relys heavily on his defence". In his MLB debut, he threw 8.2 innings of 4 hit, 1 run ball. With one strikeout. Thats how he pitches. Not that he will be this good, but I personally think of him as a Roy Halladay type- good control, gets hitters to beat themselves.

    Rickey Romero (SP)- Was our first pick a few years back- again, as McJoe said: "projects to be a 3 starter or worse...hes a lefty" is currently somewhat crapping the bed in the minors, 0-3 with a 5.36 ERA and a 2.01 WHIP. Opponents hit .312 off him.

    Brett Cecil (RP)- Drafted this year, projects to be a closer down the line. Lefty. Currently has a 1.45 ERA with 22 strikeouts, 3 walks in 18 innings down in short-season single A ball.

    Hitting- Fernando Martinez

    Pitching- Deolis Guerra, Philip Humber, Kevin Mulvey

    I didn't include Pelfrey, Gomez and Milledge because they have too much major league experience to classify as prospects.

    I would 'guess' Chris Parmelee and Jeff Manship, but there are plenty to choose from. Plouffe is climbing up the organizational ladder fast, and we always have arms. Morlan could be the arm.
