this is tough because most aren't huge hitting prospects, and alot of them wind-up @ 1B or OF :

1. Brian McCann - good enough defense, nice power, so-so avg
2. Jarrod Saltalamachia - good power, better avg, good enough behind the plate.. i think i like him a little better then McCann but oh well..
3. Jeff Clement - just signed with the mariners.. could be the best hope for c's
4. Neil Walker - maybe the other best hope. still too early to tell
5. Ryan Garko - nice hitter, not the best.. might not stay at c
6. Josh Willingham
7. George Kottaras
8. Ryan Doumit
9. Chris Snyder
10. Juan Apodaca
11. Orlando Mercado - pit has good c's
12. Kelly Shoppach
13. Russell Martin

p.s. Mathis is terrible

Thin position. Take a stab on McCann now if you can because you'll be waiting a few years until a good one comes along.
Saltalamacchia is only in High A and I agree Mathis is dying a slow death.

Maybe Jeff Clement, but I don't know much about him.

With the Padres catching state after this season, Kottaras would be a solid investment.

McCann
Montero Arizona (I realize he was old for his level, but he tore the cover off the ball. How he is not even in someone's Top 13 is beyond me.)
Kottaras
Clement
Mathis
Walker
Shoppach (If this guy gets a chance, he might be the best hitter of the bunch.)

1 - 2 is definitely McCann of the Braves, then Russ Martin of the Dodgers. After that you could make a case for a lot of guys. Although out of those guys, I'd say Jeff Clement will definitely be up there near the top after some minor league work.

Its a toss up to me. Its most probable that neither one of them will do much of anything in the big leagues. Any one of the 2-4 on my list could be swapped depending on my mood.

Mccann without a doubt number one.
From there I like Martin, Huber, then Shoppach.
After that, Doumit.
