Wow.


You forgot one of their better prospects, Carlos Gonzalez. Could easily be the best of the bunch, he's a got a full five-tool set.

At least they have one of the best pitchers in baseball with Webb. Though their pitching strengths do begin and end with Webb. They could afford to add a little depth in that department.

Webb is very young still and is already an ace. Scherzer and Nippert could become solid #2-3 pitchers. Owings and Anderson are pretty good prospects.

Their young hitters are so good that they overshadow the pitchers in the system.

Nippert is a longshot to become a #2 or 3. I like Owings better than Nippert, though I think both will eventually (or could eventually) become the #4 and 5 in 'Zona.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't Scherzer still unsigned? If and when they do sign him, I'd assume he'll become their #1 pitching prospect and could eventually become a solid #2-3 guy, but still, it would be a few years before he even cracks a Big League rotation.

Another good arm they have is Brett Anderson. I'm pretty sure he was a high schooler from the '06 class, but he has good command and pretty good stuff. Again, could become a nice #2-3 guy, though he is still a ways away and anything could happen.

Average depth in the pitching department, though most of them are still no where near contributing.

Brett Anderson is probably their best pitching prospect. Nippert seemed like a good prospect before this last season, but his star has fallen some. Owings could devolp into a middle of the rotation starter but isn't their yet. For the next couple of years Webb is the only guy i would trust with the ball in the playoffs.

I'm a bit scared of Jason Hirsh right now that he's a Rockie 8-o . I was going to target him after trying half a year to get Rich Hill without success(even though he sucked for a long period of time). Hirsh would be my next one who find at least some success, not sure anymore now that he's a Rockie. Especially since I have no idea how Coors will play this year(and beyond) :-o

Personally I think they should left him in the pen where his stuff is better utilized. Hennessey or Correia will be fine as their #5
