The first four will be universally agreed upon. And considering that of those four, 3 are pitchers, I would be going with Jackson. Elbert has yet to flash any REL skill and injuries seem to be something he cannot get over. His outlook now seems to be in the bullpen, where he *could* be a dominant closer, but LA has tons of those already. I think 2009 has him in LA's bullpen as a middle reliever, and he stays there progressing up to an 8th inning role in 2010. Austin Jackson will most likely be the starting CF by mid 2009 for the Yankees absent a trade (which is somewhat likely).

1. Hughes
2. Morales
3. F.Martinez
4. Cueto
5. A.Jackson or D.Guerra

The top four are easy, but a case could be made for Jackson, Guerra, or even Elbert. I do think Elbert is the riskiest of those three because of his injury history which is why I would rather have Jackson or Guerra. Guerra also pitched in the Futures Game last summer which should tell you that most scouts believe he has a very good upside.

This is pretty easy to me. Both of the last two guys are products of over-hype, but still good enough gambles to keep.
