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.
Why would you knock Wood down, but keep upton who hasn't played anything outside of highschool? Not even a top 10 player? Where will you find his power at shortstop? come on.
I would bump Wood to #2, drop Upton to #7 and tell Young to hurry up and play in the Majors so we can see if you can live up to the hype.
