BEST ML PROSPECTS FOR 2004

Postby Just Admit It Pete » Tue Feb 10, 2004 3:29 pm

Im in a 5 x 5 keeper league and we are about to hold our supplemental FA / minor league draft. I would love input on who you guys think the next priors are coming out of the minor league system and who I should draft to hold. Maybe list a top 5 here. Please give me prospects for this year or next year that I should grab and hold. Guys like Wainwright or ZAch G. Your rankings of the top 5 with commentary would be very helpful.

Thanks

If you want to list more than 5 feel free- but i want the studs not the duds.

it eould be impossible to list just the STUDS and not the DUDS because all those listed are still prospects, which means they could turn out either way, and most of the time, its the wrong way. But the players most likely to become studs are probably Greinke, Mauer, and Wagner. Wagner has got heat, Greinke has been compared to Maddux and has good control (key to turning from a good minor leaguer to good major leaguer) and Mauer, the job is his and hes got the tools.

I would say those are the top 5 prospects this year, there are some other guys who you can look towards for 2005 also if you want.



1. Prince Fielder 1B
2. Josh Barfield 2B
3. Dallas McPherson - 3B
4. Jason Stokes - 1B
5. Greg Miller - P

I looked at fielder but does he have a realistic shot at the biggs this year or next?- Already have stokes locked up I think he will be a beast, but even he is still 1 or 2 years away.

Where is Delmon Young on this list? Because He will be better than anyone that has been mentioned.... I would rank Delmon Young the best prospect in all of Minor League baseball, but he is not gonna make an impact until '05... But keep your eyes open!

Two Years away for Delmon Young. But you can also look at Rickie Weeks.

What's with all of the Blue Jay offspring (Fielder and Barfield).

Some good Jays prospects

Alexis Rios OF (2005-2006)
Dustin McGowan SP (2004-2005)
Jayson Werth OF (2004-2005)

Otherwise, there is not much surprise with the 2004 prospects
Khalil Greene SS SD - should start
Bobby Crosby SS Oak - should start
Joe Mauer c min
Adam LaRoche 1b atl
Justin Morneau 1b/dh min
Jason Bay of pit
Brandon Claussen SP cin
Jesse Crain SP/RP min

the first 3 or 4 will probably be drafted in the deeper leagues
