Closest to Majors: Maybin. Wasnt really close until the trade. But should be able to start opening day in 08 for the Tigers.

Highest Celing: Maybin. Not even close.

However, Rasmus is a pretty safe prospect.
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.

Hermida hit .340 in the 2nd half of last year and .290+ overall with 18 homers after he appeared healthy and strong for the first time in the show.

it wouldnt surprise me at all if he blows up like he did post allstar.

As to Maybin v. Rasmus, I'll go against the grain and say Rasmus. I wasn't super excited about what Maybin did in A ball last year (A is the only place he got more than 50 ABs - 20 AB in AA, 49 AB in MLB). I think you could argue there are about 6 different hitters who had better (or at least equivalent) statistical seasons in A ball, including Christopher Marrero, Carlos Triunfel, Austin Jackson, Kyle Blanks and Jose Tabata.

Rasmus, OTOH, tore AA the hell up. Justin Upton is probably the only guy who clearly did better in AA last year. I guess you could argue Longoria's time in AA was on Rasmus' level (even though Longoria was a year older), and also argue that Bruce's limited AB (66) outshone Rasmus, but we're talking about consensus top five prospects here.

And if you're worried about playing time, it's not like Jim Edmunds is 29, or even 35, anymore. Plus, it's not like the young guys, Ankiel and Duncan, have the talent to block Rasmus. Frankly, I think RAsmus starts in AAA in gets a mid-season callup (right around Edmunds first back injury).
In my fridge: Founders Kentucky Breakfast Stout (KBS), Central Waters Peruvian Morning, Bell's Batch 10,000, Dale's Pale Ale, Capital Brewery Amber, New Glarus Moon Man, and Guinness.

Rasmus is way better than Maybin. Way way better. The areas where Maybin is better than Rasmus (speed and plate discipline), Rasmus is still extremely good. The areas where Rasmus is better than Maybin (power, strikeouts, line drives) Maybin is quite putrid.

Rasmus is as flawless an offensive prospect as there in the minors right now.
