Buchholz
Rasmus
Maybin
Chamberlain

In that order, but I have them at 3-4-5-6 respectively in my rankings so they're as close as they come. Buchholz is special though. If any prospect has the chance to be a front of the rotation starter he does.

Yeah, a lot of guys tend to stay away from the oftentimes overrated prospect pitchers, and I tend to agree with that logic. It can be a crapshoot. In my minor league draft last year I took Lincecum and Pelfrey. :-D !+)

I'd take Rasmus since him and Buchholz are basically at around a tossup (I'd rate Buchholz higher on a prospect list though) and when in doubt, take the hitter.

1. Maybin
2. Rasmus
3. Chamberlain
4. Buchholz

Maybin is still the most talented player out of the bunch and has the most upside. Rasmus also looks like a potential 30-30 guy at some point in the future. He also has good plate discipline for a player his age. I think both Chamberlain and Buchholz are basically a tossup at this point. Both have #1 potential but neither has pitched enough and both have had shoulder problems in the past. I will always take a couple of high end five tool hitters over high end pitchers because so many factors can derail a pitcher from year to year. But with that being said I can see why some would rank the pitchers above the hitters in this group. You can not really go wrong with any of these guys listed above.

I'd go:
1) Maybin
2) Buchholz
3) Rasmus
4) Chamberlain


Maybin is star. He really should spend most of this year in the minors to refine his game, but could start the as the Marlins CFer.
Usually i try to avoid pitchers, but in the case of Clay, i would make the exception. The kid is a legit 3 pitch stud.
Rasmus is great, but in my mind he is a step behind fellow youngsters Justin Upton and Maybin.
Chamberlain is very good pitcher, but these three are slightly ahead of him.
"I do not think baseball of today is any better than it was 30 years ago... I still think Radbourne is the greatest of the pitchers." John Sullivan 1914-Old athletes never change.

I don't think anyone is standing in his way. He'll be in the Marlins outfield opening day.

Maybin and Rasmus will have more of an impact at current date while Buckholz and Chamberlain will be pitching in the AL East which could eat them up faster than the NL will to the young OF's.

Maybin -- Buchholz --Joba -- Rasmus

You could interchange them in pretty much any order though.
