Seriously man. Do a little work yourself first. Narrow this list from 60 down to 15, and you will find peole will be a lot more helpful.

Frankly, all I'm willing to put into this is to let you know which names I recognize off the top of my head. Guys whose names I know, and honestly, I don't remember if I know them for good or bad reasons:
Casto, Kory
Dopirak, Brian
Kottaras, George
Pawelek, Mark
Reynolds, Greg
Sinkbeil, Bret
Wood, Travis
Beato, Pedro
Carrillo, Cesar
Lubanski, Chris
Rogers, Mark (injured fireballer in the brewers system - probably not worth holding onto)
Hu, Chin-Lung
Nageotte, Clint
Banks, Josh
Bowyer, Travis
Guzman, Joel
Liotta, Ray
Martinez-Esteve, Eddy
Alvarez, Abe
Duncan, Eric
Meyer, Dan
Sweeney, Ryan

If I had to guess, I would bet Hu is the most valuable on the list.
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.

1. Greg Reynold(injury risk...potential #3starter)
2. Brett Sinkbeil(good arm....potential middle of rotation guy with you guessed it a good sinker)
3. Ryan Tucker(another good young arm)
4. Sean West(ditto)
5. Chin-Lung Hu(could be a solid middle of the road option at middle infield....great speed....solid hitter....think a young David Eckstein type player)
6. Pedro Beato(a younger somewhat overrated player but a lot of scouts like him)

Both Hu and Beato both played in the minor league futures games this last summer. No great players in this mix but these are in my opinion the best of your list. ;-D

I'll say Carillo if he can bounce back form TJ. West is nice too imo.
