Out of the list you gave, these are the ones that really stand out in my mind:

Joe Blanton is a real keeper, and a great prospect.

Sean Burnett is a great young pitcher for Pitt.

Gavin Floyd is solid, maybe the best on your list.

Zack Greinke, some say is the next Maddux. Not a flamethrower, but has uncanny control with outstanding maturity.

Angel Guzman, some say the Cubs best young prospect, but don't know when he's going to crack that solid rotation.

Bobby Jenks, if he can "grow up" some, and get his head on straight, could be untouchable with a 100 mph fastball and great curve.

Ervin Santana is a great young prospect for the Angels, some say very comparable to Edwin Jackson.

If I had to put them in some order it would be:
1. Zack Greinke
2. Gavin Floyd
3. Joe Blanton
4. Ervin Santana
5. Sean Burnett
6. Angel Guzman
7. Bobby Jenks
8. Andy Sisco
9. Chad Gaudin
10. Jeremy Griffiths
11. the rest

thank you very much for your list and input......it gives me some security that I'm not the only one that thinks of those certain prospects.....all I can go by is what I have read and statistics.....only if I had the great benefit of actually seeing some of these guys in action.

As seldom as the phrase 'closer of the future' turns out to be true, somebody like Jesse Crain is worth considering as well...

Jered Weaver is another guy who seems to be doing decent in his senior year of college. Also, Cole Hamels. I will have to do some more research but I might be able to come up with a few more.
