There will be diff opinions obviousl, but after the research I've done I'd rank them:
-Homer Bailey --huge ceiling. Top of line Ace stuff
-P Hughes -- Ace stuff. Close to Bailey IMO (some say best pitcher in minors)
-Garza-Great stuff at a good AGE...He'll be on the Minn staff next year--and do well IMO.
Gallardo--Huge leap this year! Bext prospect Brewers have...looks like he's dominating in AA after OWNING A. I think he'll get a call in Sept and be in the rotation in 07.
Billingsly--everyone says he has ACE, great stuff but something tells me he was overrated a bit. Always had command issues and never really put up great numbers in minors. Me personally, after what I've seen, I'd rather have the above prospects....I know some will disagree....
don't know much about other 2....but James looks solid.
