    Your Top 10?

    With the graduations of Jay Bruce, Evan Longoria, Joba Chamberlain, Clayton Kershaw, Clay Buccholz, Franklin Morales, and Homer Bailey from (BA's) top 10 list, what do you think the top 10 prospects list will look like going into next season. I understand that the AFL and other things will happen to possibly adjust the list over the offseason but mine has to be:

    1) BAL Matt Wieters C
    Ranked 12th by BA last year and hadn't even played a game yet
    Hit .355/.454/.600 in High A/AA (wowza)

    2) TBR David Price SP
    Ranked 10th by BA last year after also not playing a game in 2007
    109 IP, 109 K, 2.30 ERA, 1.13 WHIP

    3) FLA Cameron Maybin OF
    Ranked 6th by BA last year
    Spent the whole year in AA after being rushed to the majors in 2007
    Hit .277/.375/.456
    The numbers may be down a bit from last year, and the K rate needs to come down, but his talent is undeniable.

    4) CLE Matt LaPorta OF

    5) SFG Madison Bumgarner SP (Think he's too high? Suck it, his numbers were ridiculous)

    6) TOR Travis Snider OF

    7) DET Rick Porcello SP

    8) STL Colby Rasmus OF (Struggled at the beginning of the year, but he's legit)

    9) KCR Mike Moustakas 3B (BIG power)

    10) ATL Jason Heyward OF

    Thoughts?

    1. Matt Wieters
    2. David Price
    3. Jason Heyward
    4. Colby Rasmus
    5. Rick Porcello
    6. Cameron Maybin
    7. Travis Snider
    8. Matt LaPorta
    9. Mike Moustakas
    10. Neftali Feliz

    Not completely sure on Feliz at 10, I definitely like a pitcher there whether it's him, Bumgarner, Tillman or Cahill, I'm not sure it really matters that much as they're all looking great. Personally I think Wieters/Price/Heyward is going to be the consensus 1-2-3 with most publications, and rightly so, they look like the cream to me.

    Honourable mentions going those aforementioned pitchers, Dexter Fowler, Andrew McCutchen and Austin Jackson.

    I'm sure my list'll change once I remembers players who have escaped my immediate memory but that's mine as of now.

    here is a top of my head list


    1. David Price - future number 1-2 pitcher
    2. Matt Wieters (should be 1a and 1b)
    3. Cameron Maybin - call up numbers were sick
    4. Neftali Feliz - Amazing player, will be best prospect in baseball by end of next year
    5. Mike Moustakas - very nice player going forward
    6. Matt LaPorta - solid player and good potentials
    7. Rick Porcello - stud written all over him, but k rate is sorta strange for his stuff
    8. Jason Heyward - amazing tools, screw you atlanta I dont wanna see him for a decade
    9. Posey - best catcher in the minors
    10. Logan Morrison - .351/.414/.536 in the Pitcher FSL league is sick


    Texas is the best system in the minors, Feliz, Perez, holland, Harrison, Kiker, Hurley with a few good catchers toolsy players like Mayberry and andrus, Jesus man they are sick


    Honorable mention to Mike Stanton whom at 18 just hit about 40 jacks showing up really Heyward just Heyward has better tools overall

    I don't agree with Feliz that high and I'm still laughing at the huge homerism in putting Morrison that high.

    Sickels alls him one of the elite prospects. His potential and numbers are fine for it and between him or the Bosox Anderson for the top 1st baseman prospect in the minors (smoak needs to do more to get up there also but will). But the FSL is the hardest league for hitters in the minor leagues those numbers are disgusting.

    (a midseason write up to consider about morrison)

    For Feliz up to you, but he will be the best pitching prospect around soon as Price will be in the bigs next year anyways.

    I think you are high on Rasmus btw, I just cant see him being up there that high his numbers this year werent that impressive really. I love Bumgarner and Alderson though (believe it was alderson is his name) but I have seen so many pitchers like Bumgarner burn out way down there to put him into the top 10 yet. If he does it next year will be interesting.

    Off the top of my head:

    1. Matt Wieters, C
    2. David Price, LHP
    3. Rick Porcello, RHP
    4. Colby Rasmus, OF
    5. Travis Snider, OF
    6. Mike Moustakas, 3B
    7. Jason Heyward, OF
    8. Cameron Maybin, OF
    9. Trevor Cahill, RHP
    10. Lars Anderson, 1B

    Rasmus had something of a down year, but he started slow.

    April: .210/.306/.371
    May: .218/.314/.317
    June: .333/.441/.535
    July: (injured) .208/.208/.250, 24 PA

    I've personally got more faith in Rasmus than I do in Maybin- Maybin struck out in 32% of his AB this year and has struck out in 30% of his AB in his career. Rasmus, 23%. So while Rasmus strikes out his fair share, I think Maybin's K% is much more of a red flag.

    maybins ks are alarming but rasmus is hitting in the pcl which is a paradise for hitters which is why I find his numbers a little strange personally. Those parks there are made for hitters traditionally


    9. Trevor Cahill, RHP

    i forgot about him heck of an arm

    They were strange because he started terribly slow (unlucky April) and then got injured. Had he not gotten injured his numbers would have looked much, much nicer.

    Rasmus has always been a bit too streaky for my taste, but I like his chances of being a top-tier CF more than Maybin.

    This seems like a really solid list. Snider might be too high and Heyward might be too low.

    Snider is #3 on Sickel's new list and he doesn't even have Heyward in the top 10

    1-Matt Wieters, C, Baltimore Orioles
    2-David Price, LHP, Tampa Bay Rays
    3-Travis Snider, OF, Toronto Blue Jays
    4-Colby Rasmus, OF, St. Louis Cardinals
    5-Lars Anderson, 1B, Boston Red Sox
    6-Pedro Alvarez, 3B, Pittsburgh Pirates
    7-Neftali Feliz, RHP, Texas Rangers
    8-Brett Wallace, 3B, St. Louis Cardinals
    9-Cameron Maybin, OF, Florida Marlins
    10-Matt LaPorta, 1B-OF, Cleveland Indians
    Wallace and Alvarez seem too high to me on this particular list however.

    I'm pretty sure that's the list he did for 2009 fantasy baseball purposes, hence the weird rankings, he doesn't usually do a top 100 list.
