Based on what parameters?

Some of those guys are going to be in the majors at lot sooner than others.

Are you looking for their respective value in 2 years, 5 years, 10 years?

I'd say:

Bailey
Dukes
Bruce
Maybin
Tabata
Stewart

Bailey and Dukes are closest to the majors and more projectable, Bailey gets the nod because he's not a douchebag, and because the Reds could be pretty good in a couple years (already pretty young - and have two solid starters, and in addition to Bailey, they'll have Bruce and Votto in the next 3-5 years)

After that, it's about long term potential, and Bruce is far and away outproducing Tabata and Maybin, and even though he's got something like 15 homers, he's got like 35 doubles, so he could easily have 20sh homers at 19, which is in the Andruw Jones / Alex Rodriguez territory.

Tabata is 17, and won't be playing in the majors until about 2010, so it's just waaaay to far away to assigning value to him.

Stewart has had about one full year of productive baseball in his career, and has been really bad outside that. He's not shown power, the ability to hit for average, or very good plate discipline. While the scouts love(d) him, and they obviously know more than I'll ever know, so you can't completely discount him, he's gotta start showing something soon

Then I would go with Bruce or Maybin. They are both still young and a few years away, but they have high potential. Bruce should probably have the most power of the two, but Maybin will be very solid as well.

Out of those guys I like Maybin future the best. His power and speed combo to me is just going to be outstanding.

Go with Bruce, then, but why can't you make room for both?
Chris Iannetta was born on Krypton and transported to Earth as an infant and saves the universe when he's not getting on base every plate appearance.
