2007 Top 10 Prospects

Postby Aces Wild » Tue Feb 21, 2006 5:28 pm

Anyone wanna try and shoot out a top 10 list for 2007 prospects? I really dont have much of an idea who will be up there next year.

1. Justin Upton, ss, Diamondbacks
Probably not a shortstop but could be next Ken Griffey Jr.
2. Brandon Wood, ss, Angels
Forcing his way atop Los Angeles' collection of shortstop prospects
3. Ian Stewart, 3b, Rockies
An elite hitter in Coors Field is very enticing
4. Alex Gordon, 3b, Royals
A better hitter than Billy Butler and actually can play third base, too
5. Lastings Milledge, of, Mets
Will New York have traded one of the minors' top five-tool talents by then?
6. Hanley Ramirez, ss, Red Sox
Has yet to put up stats to match his prodigious tools
7. Chad Billingsley, rhp, Dodgers
Has better chance to get 2006 look after Paul DePodesta's firing
8. Joel Guzman, of, Dodgers
Keeps reminding scouts of Juan Gonzalez, could be on trading block
9. Troy Tulowitzki, ss, Rockies
Better than Bobby Crosby and gets his stats enhanced by altitude
10. Howie Kendrick, 2b, Angels
Pitchers still haven't figured out a way to get him out



Whole Article

The article lists the top 20 for 2007.

We'll see some of these guys this year. I actually heard today that Scoica (sp?) says great things about Kendrick and he never compliments rookies. He might actually win the job.

The above list is the top guys who will establish themselves in 2007 not be the top 10 prospects. But here is what Jim Callis said in a recent ESPN.com interview:


mike (Columbus): With all of top prospects who are expected to graduate to the majors this year, what will your top 10 look like for 2007.

SportsNation Jim Callis: I'll assume a lot of guys lose their prospect status this year, and go with:



1. Justin Upton

2. Ian Stewart

3. Jon Lester

4. Andy LaRoche

5. Billy Butler

6. Troy Tulowitzki

7. Jarrod Saltalamacchia

8. Daric Barton

9. Felix Pie

10. Carlos Gonzales


A little different.

Scocia is the Manager not an SP, so that gives more credit to kendrick. this kid can definately play but Scocia does prefer vets and kennedy is there now. but if kendrick plays the way he has they have no choice but to make room for him

He was questioning whether his spelling was correct, not whether he was an SP. ;-) :-b
