Where is Bronk?? I guess he's 1 year too old.. but if they were going to make a cut off they should have made it 25.
I'm back. Sorta.

Ahh... I missed it up top in the original post. Now it makes sense.

But seriously though. Coco Crisp over Hafner? Come on. :-t

Yeah, there's a few things I disagree with.

Corey Patterson just gets flat out fooled too often to be a top 10 hitter on any list except perhaps "top 10 CF on the Chicago Cubs." He's dangerous, but just has no concept of the strike zone. Everybody and their mothers know that he's going to get high heat with 2 strikes, yet he still swings and misses.

Justin Morneau, Jason Bay, and Joe Mauer should all be up a few spots, perhaps moving up at the expense of Patterson and Rollins.

Sean Burroughs and Clint Barmes? No, I don't think so. Rating Barmes this high is basing it on a small sample size. And Burroughs? The explanation by his picture on those rankings do nothing but criticize him. So why is he a top 20 young hitter?

Terrible list... Did I miss it or where is David Wright? I guess Chavez is a bit too old since Marcus seems to be the oldest on the list. And Aramis? Reyes? Vernon Wells? Uribe? Utley? Terrible list to say the least. :-t

Totally agree with Yoda. David Wright is going to be a stud. How old is Soriano?? Brad Wilkerson?? Bobby Crosby I would take at this point over Barmes. I still think Milton Bradley could be a superstud.

Isn't that always the case though?


Yeah, I guess. It's jus stupid to create any list that make claims towards production and then to mix names like Nick Johnson and Coco Crisp with that of Albert Pujols. Call the list best prospects or up and comers. :-D
