He asked for the next big prospect. Some of the guys being listed are already considered big time prospects. Like McCutchen who is already considered a top 15 prospect. And Jay Bruce who is considered a top 10 prospect.

I think he wanted to know who would be the Gordons, Youngs, etc in a year or two. McCutchen and Bruce are the people in that category.

It is interesting that you are using Adenhart's HS Tommy John surgery as a plus. I am not sure its such a good idea to invest a lot into a player who already has already needed such a major surgery.

I don't much about the guy so I guess that may all just serve as evidence of how good you think he is.

Guys like Kershaw, Adenhart, and Bruce are already top 20-25 prospects at a minimum on most lists.

If you're looking for a guy currently outside the top 25 on every list who should be ranking considerably higher next year, watch Clay Buchholz. 4 great pitches including a mid-90's fastball, and exceptional control to go with them. He's in the 40-60 range on a lot of lists I've seen this year, but expect him to be in the top 20 next year, or maybe by midseason.

He is kinda at the point that Phillip Hughes was last year at this time. Considered a top 50 prospect, but not given the credit he deserved. I don't think Buchholz will be the top pitching prospect in baseball next year, but he will make a huge jump in the rankings (barring injury).

I would think so, since he isn't on the team's top 10 for BA. The only people who would know about him are the ones that have done some reasonable research. I like the kid a lot though.
