Postby thedude » Sun Feb 11, 2007 10:59 pm

So far i have read a little about these kids from baseball digest daily, but i am not too fimilar with any of them.


Matt Harvey – RHP – Fitch, Mystic, CT
Rick Porcello – RHP – Seton Hall Prep, Chester, NJ
Jason Heyward – OF/1B – Henry County, McDonough, GA
Jack McGeary – LHP – Roxbury Latin, Newton, MA
Michael Main – RHP/OF – Deland, Deltona, FL
Justin Jackson – SS – T C Roberson, Asheville, NC
Michael Burgess – OF – Hillsborough, Tampa, FL
Neil Ramirez – RHP – Kempsville, Virginia Beach, VA
Greg Peavey – RHP/3B – Hudson’s Bay, Vancouver, WA
Joshua Smoker – LHP – Calhoun, Sugar Valley, GA
Blake Beavan – RHP – Irving, Irving, TX
Madison Bumgarner – LHP – South Caldwell, Lenoir, NC
Tim Alderson – RHP – Horizon, Phoenix, AZ
Ryan Dent – INF – Woodrow Wilson, Long Beach, CA
Josh Vitters – 3B – Cypress, Anaheim, CA

Anyway i figured we could start a discussion of the top prep players for those of us who are allowed to draft high school and college kids.

Lets see.

Michael Main is flat out amazing, as I have played against him. He can throw 98-99 mph and is said to have the best fastball in all of high school. He also can play some stellar OF.

Josh Vitters is said to be the best pure hitters coming out of high school.

Michael Burgess has tons of power, but he has a lot of holes in his swing. That may or may not be his downfall. He does seem to connect a lot more though than the average.

Jason Heyward is someone that I have not heard too much about, but I know that he has some great defense at RF and 1B.

Blake Beavan and Greg Peavey have fastballs that register at 94 mph.

Rick Porcello has a fastball that can hit 97 mph, and has some late movement.

Matt Harvey has a fastball that hits 96 mph, and like Porcello, has some movement.

Madison Bumgarner throws about 94 mph, and is a lefty.

I'd say Vitters and Main are the best. Vitters is the Best Hitting Prospect easily.
Is pushing for President Obama to pass a law requiring all citizens to be Chicago White Sox fans and make October 1st "White Sox Day" where we all dress as our favorite player. It maybe socialist, but I don't care.

Baseball America mostly. I do a lot of research, so I follow HS baseball pretty closely.

I've seen (and played) against Main personally, so I can attest to what they say.

Well it looks like Vitters is going to go pretty high.


while McGeary's comitment to standford and bonus demands are scaring away team.

Anyone have anyother updates on the top highschool prospects?

The Cubs will most likely take Vitters.
