BA came out with their top ten list for the Padres and put Barfield at #1, Greene at #2, and Stauffer at #4.

Thoughts?

Wow .. thats a huge jump for Barfield ... he was 7th last season ...
I'm not complaining here ... please understand :-)

Just about the time that Loretta deal is up Jesse will be ready. :-)

Stauffer, he is at least two years away. If he dominates in the minors this season, he might get a September call up. Two years ... '06 ... grab him in '05 for keeper leagues ...

Greene ... well he is here now ... He will be batting 8th. Wait till you all get a look at his batting stance, for those who haven't seen him. He looks like he is not even paying attn, but his bat is fast "Whack" He would be a solid late round pick this season, but I am not expecting huge things from him this year .... From a fantasy perspective anyways... 10-13 hrs ... 50-60 rbis ... 280.ba .

A HUGE jump for Barfield.

I watched him play a few times last year at Single-A and he was impressive. You could litterly see the pitcher scared at the mound. His numbers were amazing. But, like i mentioned in the last post about prospects, his strikeout numbers are HORRID with a capital HORRID. But that is what double-a and triple-a will teach him. If i remember correctly, Mobile, and the entire southern league is a hitters paradise so his numbers could get even MORE inflated, which is awesome. Plan on him hitting for the Padres in 2006.

Stauffer scares the hell out of me. Ranking him #4 is a blow to #5-10. He pitched zero innings in the minor leagues and his shoulder is hurt. Granted he pitched awesome during college, and most pitchers drafted out of college don't play one inning in the minors after they get drafted, most of them aren't hurt either.

However, i am grateful he mentioned his hurt arm during negations and signed for a measley 750,000 when he could have gotten a lot more.

Greene, this kid will hit .330 next year. I just hope when he falters, and i'm sure he will just like Nady and Burroughs did, that the padres don't lose faith and dump him in AAA. Let him learn his lumps and bruises the hard way.

One more thing, next year this list will be ever better. The Padres have the #1 pick in next June's draft.
