from the top 30 last year the top 10 in no particular order to have an impact in the Pros and fantasy rosters
David Price- next year
Mike Moustakas- 2010
Matt Weiters- mid-2009
Matt Laporta- Maybe late this year
Jason Heyward-2010
Rick Porcello-2010
Ross Detwiller-2009
Jarrod Parker- maybe next year
JP Arenciba i think will surprise a lot of people
Casey Weathers

then i would say watch Bumgarner, Alderson, Beaven, Main

I think Baumgarner should be on that list. I'd probably take him over Detwiler long term. The Giants seem to have a good recipe for developing homegrown arms.

for some reason i get the feeling that he is going to become a very consistent number 3 SP, Detwiller that is. I think Bumgarner has more potential long term but i would take Detwiller if i wanted the safer player

Still amazes me that Heyward fell to the 14th pick when most scouts had him as the #2 hitter in the entire draft. :-?

Heyward has been incredible. It's too bad he's going to anchor Atlanta's lineup once Chipper retires. :-C

Brackman has yet to do anything because of his injury but when this guy gets back to being healthy he could be one of the top prospects from this draft. He should have gone earlier, teams are just way to afraid to spend money.
