Pretty good post, but I think you placed too much emphasis on players close to the majors than actual big league ceiling, since you gave a rather long period (seven years) For example, some players you missed:

C Neil Walker (possible .300-30 HR guy), C Jeff Mathis (I like them both better than McCann and the rest)
1B James Loney...all the tools, been hurt by many injuries and underproduction
2B/SS/OF Stephen Drew...all the tools to hit.
SS Chris Nelson
3B Alex Gordon...he's actually close to the majors
3B Eric Duncan
OF Cameron Maybin...possible Griffey ceiling.
OF Lastings Milledge
SP Phil Hughes
SP Chad Billingsley
SP Jeff Niemann
SP Adam Miller
SP Homer Bailey
SP Cole Hamels
Don't forget RP Jairo Garcia, either.

Prior, if healthy, will blow away Peavy. As much as I like Peavy...

why is reyes on that list? and that high? the kid can hardly hit a lick. he's got an OBP less than .300. sure he can run (when he's not hurt...), but that's about it. i mean, it's like he's scott podsednik light. i'll take BJ upton and rickie weeks before him every time.

Well, the kid is only 22. He has to make some adjustments obviously but to assume that he won't ever improve is sorta unrealistic. But I agree I'd take Weeks before him but not Upton. Upton will need a position switch and not sure what that would do to him.

How about this guy?

If Rocco Baldelli and Jason Kubel stay healthy, they will be great OF for years to come.

I agree with Warrick95 in that you're overlooking some higher ceiling guys. Pitchers like Hamels, Miller, Bailey, and I'll add Mark Rogers all have all star ceilings. I also really like Alex Gordon and Jeff Mathis.

Oh, and it may be some bias, but I like Fielder more than Kotchman and possibly Barton. I'm undecided with Barton. Watching Fielder play for his 12 games up got me real excited for him to be in Milwaukee to stay.
