4,5, and 7 may have a big impact. Delmon Young will be great-but when?

good post, but im sure you would have better feedback and would do more service by reposting your list in the minors forum. But otherwise decent list. The only disagreement i have is wood being listed so high. I know he just had a huge season but he is not proven over time, and no one expected/projected this from him. So until he proves that last season was the real deal I dont think he deserves top 5 or maybe even top 10 status. I mean if were going by one season then where is sean gallagher on the list. He had a huge season, just fizzeled at the end and finished with a sub 3 era. and hes only 19. So to sum it all up, dont put too much faith in wood yet, over his whole career hes struck out 314 times and walked 114 times. So its all or nothing with him. Hardly deserving of top 5 status. Butler would be a better choice, better power projections and a much better overall hitter. Just my 2 cents.

From everything I've heard so far Wood will be at the top three of just about everyone's prospect list. Good list...I might have Anthony Reyes listed higher but prospects are a gamble anyway.

This is a good list considering you did it from memory.

I would add to it

Yes, but in 2007 or 2008. Great prospect to have in your keeper/dynasty leagues.
