I didn't say that, I said I expect Maybin to be absent in the top two spots, possibly even 5. Where do you see him ranked right now?
Right now, I'd probably rank him right around 5th or 6th.......but given his track record, and his skill set, I don't think i'd ever say it's impossible for him to jump 3 or 4 spots over the last couple months.
Also, in terms of the initial question of top prospects/call ups for 09, I think both Price and La Porta could find themselves with starting spots next year, if they don't both get a shot at some point this year.
Of course the same could be said for both Maybin and Rasmus......but I think both will be call ups next season, as opposed to starting the season with their respective clubs.
