I'll take a stab at this, could move anyone up 1 or down 1 IMO

Villalona - high risk and a long way away, but high reward
Anderson - put up some nice numbers last season in A ball
Guerra - who knows, but he's a high ceiling guy
Lowrie - a good offensive MI that is close to the MLB, blocked in Boston though

Are these guys ceilings significantly better than what you can get on the waiver wire
Brandon Jones - decent bat, but won't be good in any category
Hu - regarded as a defense first SS

I agree with these rankings.

Villalona and Anderson are the best 2 imo. Both have a lot of power potential. Villalona has more upside, but Anderson has a better chance of reaching his ceiling.

Angel Villalona- but he is a long ways away a lot could happen between now and then, i would expect anything from him until about 2010 or 2011
Lars Anderson- put up some nice numbers i wouldn't be surprised if he gets some late year at bats with a role next year
Jed Lowrie- some rank him very high some aren't as high i think he will be alright though, Lugo is locked up for 3 more years i believe but i bet lowrie contributes before that
Delois Guerra- still a little ways away but i like him a lot

Chin-Lung Hu SS dodgers

Hu is very good prospect, but fantasy wise he falls to the bottom of this group.
