1. Schafer-the starting CF by 2009 in Atl
2. Towles-the starting catcher for Hou this coming year
3. Elbert-best arm you have....a health risk however
4. DelosSantos-another good young arm...was in the 2007 futures game
This is where it gets tougher
5. Mayberry Jr.-good power hitting prospect....still has no concept of the strike zone
6. Walker-safe pick at 3B.....not a lot of upside though....maybe 20-25 hr potential
7. D.Young-LAD will not give him much of a shot....good numbers in AAA, but every hitter for LAD has great numbers in that league
8. Flip a coin......Harrison could break out or Stubbs could take another step forward

Hoey does have a shot at closing, but I think they will give Fernando Cabrera the first chance followed by a group of two or three other prior to Hoey

The top two are fairly safe, low risk picks but the rest all have a long ways to go. Good luck!

1. Schafer
Good prospect, Will be a starter soon
2. Towles
Is starting now
3. Walker
Pretty decent prospect, Top 40-50 range
4. Elbert
Was a high quality prospect, bounceback potential if nothing else
5. Faustino de los Santos
Good arm, better than what else is left
6. Revere
I want to give him a full season, has some pretty good tools
7. Hoey
He does have a chance at closing if he has a tremendous Spring.
8. Stubbs
Best upside of the rest.

OF Jordan Schafer - best spec in the braves org
SP Fautino de los Santos - best spec in the white sox organization ala BP
3B Neil Walker - not a huge fan, but i'll give into concensus
SP Matt Harrison - think he's under-rated
C J.R. Towles - nice immediate impact
SP Scott Elbert - If he recovers he's a top 10 or 20 spec, love the upside.
OF Drew Stubbs - the best of the rest.
OF Ben Revere - best spec in the twins org ala BP

These guys just miss to me.
Hooey, just doesn't have the upside to me to compete with the rest of these guys.
Mayberry, JR - I don't think he has the tools to compensate for the K/BB rate.
