    Also the Dodgers top prospects have been pitchers for the past 5 years, and this is the most hitter leaning system they've had in 10+. So I have no idea what that post even means.

    Yeah given that they gave their two highest ceiling SPs to Boston (Lee looks like a 3 at best). I like Pederson and Seager, so as you said it's probably the best hitting system theyve had since around the Kemp days. Not sure about the exact last time they had serious hitting; that you would know better than me.

    Loney/Kemp/Martin were all top 50 guys in their day.

    This is fantastic, whoever shared this is a legend.

    The best Top 100 list is the "Top Prospect Alert" one. A very fair and well judged list.

    The guy claims in the first paragraph that he's not a scout and didn't watch a minor league game. Anyone can look at stats and decide who's good. There's much better sites.

    MLB.com's Prospect lists

    http://mlb.mlb.com/news/article.jsp?...s_mlb&c_id=mlb

    Top 10 Prospects by Position
    • Right-handed pitchers
    • Jan. 22 - Left-handed pitchers
    • Jan. 23 - Catchers
    • Jan. 24 - Shortstops
    • Jan. 25 - Third Basemen
    • Jan. 26 - Second basemen
    • Jan. 27 - First basemen
    • Jan. 28 - Outfielders
    • Jan. 29 - Top 100 Prospects


    1. Dylan Bundy, Orioles: After being chosen fourth overall in 2011, Bundy may end up being the best player to come from his Draft class. He has moved incredibly fast through the Minors, pitched in the Futures Game and even made it to the Majors in his first full year in pro ball. Bundy has three plus pitches in his fastball, curveball and cutter, and he is able to command each one extremely well with very smooth mechanics. Bundy’s changeup has also improved a great deal since he entered pro ball, and it has the chance to be another plus pitch. Bundy has the upside to top a rotation and he should have many Orioles fans very excited.

    2. Taijuan Walker, Mariners: Walker looks like one of the biggest steals of the 2010 Draft after being picked 43rd overall and signing for $800,000. He has a plus fastball that stays in the mid to upper 90s throughout games to go along with a plus curveball and an improving changeup. The 2012 Futures Gamer faded a bit in the second half of last season, but he still has all the tools to be a top-of-the-rotation type of starter.

    3. Jose Fernandez, Marlins: After defecting from Cuba, Fernandez was taken 14th overall in 2011 by the Marlins and signed for $2 million. Fernandez looks like a steal for Miami, as he had a great first full year in pro ball in 2012. Between low Class A and advanced Class A, Fernandez held batters to an average under .200, struck out more than a batter per inning and had an ERA under 2.00 while also attending the Futures Game. Fernandez has good stuff that includes a plus fastball and slider, both of which he commands well. If he keeps developing, Fernandez has the chance to be a top-of-the-rotation starter for the Marlins.

    4. Zack Wheeler, Mets: After being picked sixth overall by the Giants in 2009 and signing for $3.3 million, Wheeler was traded to the Mets for Carlos Beltran in ‘11. Wheeler split time between Double-A and Triple-A last season, pitching well at both levels while generating a lot of strikeouts. Wheeler’s fastball and curveball are both considered plus, and he complements them with a slider and changeup. Wheeler has made the trade with the Giants look like a coup for the Mets, as he has all the tools to become a frontline starter.

    5. Gerrit Cole, Pirates: After being picked first overall by the Pirates in 2011 and collecting the largest signing bonus in MLB history, Cole moved quickly through the Minors, including a brief stint in Triple-A during the playoffs in 2012. Cole has a plus fastball that reaches triple digits on occasion and also has a plus changeup and slider. The 2012 Futures Gamer does get into trouble when he elevates his fastball but he has the frame and the stuff to be a frontline, workhorse starter for the Pirates.

    6. Jameson Taillon, Pirates: After being picked second overall by the Pirates in 2010, Taillon signed for $6.5 million. The Pirates kept a strict innings limit on him in ‘11 but allowed him to pitch over 140 innings last season as he made it to Double-A. Taillon has a plus fastball, an improving changeup and a very good breaking ball that might be his best pitch. Taillon has the chance to form a scary rotation in Pittsburgh, along with Cole, in the near future.

    7. Trevor Bauer, Indians: After being picked third overall in 2011, Bauer signed early and sped through the Minors. The UCLA product made his big league debut last season, though he struggled in his brief Major League stint as he had trouble finding the strike zone. Arizona sent him to Cleveland as part of the Shin-Soo Choo-Didi Gregorius, three-team trade. With his pure stuff, a change of scenery might be all Bauer needs to fulfill his potential as a front-of-the-rotation starter.

    8. Archie Bradley, D-backs: Bradley signed for $5 million after being taken seventh overall by the D-backs in 2011 as the “other” high school right-hander from Oklahoma after Bundy. Bradley spent his entire first full season in the Midwest League and pitched well, showing off his plus fastball, plus curve and an improving changeup. The only knock on Bradley is a high walk rate, but that is not uncommon for a pitcher of his age. A quarterback in high school, Bradley has the frame and the stuff to be a workhorse, top-of-the-rotation starter in the future.

    9. Shelby Miller, Cardinals: Miller was taken in the first round of the 2009 First-Year Player Draft by the Cardinals and signed for $2.875 million. Miller then moved relatively quickly through the Cardinals’ system, reaching Triple-A in ’12, when he had an up and down season -- starting poorly, but adjusting and finishing strong, which led to his Major League debut. When Miller is right, he has a plus fastball and complements it well with improved breaking and offspeed stuff. He still has the ceiling of a frontline starter at the big league level.

    10. Noah Syndergaard, Mets: Syndergaard was taken in the sandwich round in 2010 by the Blue Jays out of the Texas high school ranks. His full-season debut in 2012 was a big success, and he was named to the Midwest League All-Star team. Syndergaard was sent to the Mets in the R.A. Dickey trade and could end up being the best player in the deal, though it may take more time for him to develop. The big right-hander has a ton of arm strength to go along with three pitches that could be at above-average when all is said and done.
    started today with best RHP prospects.

    I'll take Miller above Bauer, Bradley, and Taillon no question, no homer

    I do like Fernandez quite a bit though.

    I think between Taillon it's close. I'll take Miller though because he's MLB ready.

    That's the separation for me from he and Taillion.

    I think he's better than Bauer and Bradley though.

    Miller I think will have a decent season, league average rates for his first season in the rotation (assuming he is given the opportunity).

    Syndergard
    That's just out of that group.

    I'd take Carlos Martinez and Julio Teheran over Syndergard. Martinez might be as high as 6 for me. Really like him.

    Who else named Martinez would be close? He'd be in mine as well most likely.
