I'd put them in this order over the long term: Williams, Claussen, Foppert, Ainsworth.

Foppert's DL'd this year.

Williams and Ainsworth are the only ones IMO that could have value this year. Eventually I believe that if Foppert makes a good recovery from his injury he will be the best of the bunch.

There will come a day when Barry Bonds leaves baseball, and everything about the game will be the better for it.

Are you guys serious? Ainsworth is the best of the bunch, by far. Second is Williams, then Claussen and Foppert both don't have the greatest prospects.

Williams is much younger than Ainsworth and already out-pitching him in the majors.

Foppert is 3 years younger, too, and pitched just as well as Ainsworth in the minors. If he recovers, he has a much higher ceiling than Ainsworth at this point.

Claussen pitched just as well as Kurt in the minors and is a year younger.

I don't see how Ainsworth is better by far. Nothing in his minor league numbers would say that.

Ya I agree. For some reason people are really high on Ainsworth for this year. Personally I'm not a big fan.

the guy has proven he can do it in the majors. it was a mistake for me to say he's WAY better, you're right, williams is right on par with him. but he's CERTAINLY not at the bottom of the pack, as many of you implied.
