Well I think it's pretty agreeable who the top 5 prospects in baseball are right now

Delmon Young, Alex Gordon, Phil Hughes, Homer Bailey, and I think most people think Brandon Wood is a top 5 prospect beyond that I think it's pretty much open for debate. I don't see Justin Upton as a top 10 prospect like MiLB.com did when they did their list. He hasnt proved anything deserving of such high praise. . As well I've seen lists where Delmon is #1 or Gordon is #1 the other 3 are pretty much flip of a coin as to who is 3-5. Thats the way I see it.

I meant it more like who are your top prospects based on what they could do not guys who are just proven minor league studs. I meant more like high ceiling guys that may not have done much yet or that most people havent heard about yet either.

Perhaps some young guys that aren't household names yet?

Jay Bruce OF CIN
Fernando Martinez OF NYM

Or do you need deeper than that? Both of the above players have high ceilings but are unproven about A ball. Is that what you were looking for?

The best place to find under the radar prospects is the 2006 draft.

Guys like: Lars Anderson, Brett Anderson, and Daniel Bard.
