Good list. I don't know that you could really do wrong with any of them.

I would rank pitchers as:
Bailey
Lincecum
Gallardo
Hochevar
Elbert
Miller

Hitters as:
Bruce
McCutchen
Longoria
Martinez
Tabata
Brignac

But again, I think they are all going to be pretty good major leaguers, if not All Stars.

Yeah all 12 guys are in my top 30 prospects. But these were the 12 best prospects that weren't on any team in my dynasty league, and I was just trying to get peoples judgement on them for when the draft comes around.

I think Gallardo is a top 5 pitching prospect easily. Maybe even third behind Bailey and Hughes.

While it's hard to find any flaws with Jay Bruce, the guys ahead of him, Martinez, Tabata, McCutchen and him are all talented five tool outfielders that are very young and very good. This is a very solid list of prospects with the only real break in ranking, IMO, coming between Bruce and Longoria and Longoria and Miller. Otherwise, the guys above Longoria are top 20 prospects and some top 10. Comparing Bruce, Maybin and McCutchen is real easy since they are similar in age and played (at least some) in the same league this year. I've seen them all play quite a bit and what really separates them at the plate is that Bruce is much more, and too, aggressive. That leads to misses, mis-hit balls and frustration. He has a tendancy, that I haven't seen in the other two, to allow emotions to affect his plate appearances. That's something that is fairly easy to correct. Delmon Young had the same problem initially but Tampa was able to correct the problem and he's doing pretty well now with not being overly aggressive and he is not easily frustrated with mistakes he makes.

The quality of prospects right now is very low because the 2006 draft class was weak and the 2006 rookie class was abnormally strong. What's more is that a higher percentage of the talent is at lower levels and that an abnormally high number of those players are legitimate five tool players. I do think that Gallardo has the least amount of developing to do before he's major league ready out of that list and that Bruce has second (maybe third) most to learn before he's ready.

How much better do you think McCutchen is than Rasmus, Koby, or anyone else? I'm personally really high on Rasmus and I think he has all the tools to be a star, but right now Rasmus is probably in the mid 30's in prospects while McCutchen is top 15.

I'd tend to agree with this.

I thought about ranking your guys, but my website will have its top 25 up next week ;-) . Most of your guys are in it...I'll post a link when I put it up.

If you need something ASAP, I have my top 10 on the site's homepage.
