I'd just like to here some differing opinions and why you rank them this way.

Brett Anderson
Justin Smoak
DHolland
BWallace.

Thx in advance

ok.

Wallace
Smoak
Anderson
Holland


Wallace cuz I believe he'll to the starting 3b by the end of the season. He's a bad-bodied freak.

Smoak is one who coulda been listed ahead of Wallace for very much the same reason. Just depends on your preference. Long term. I am guessing Smoak to be better.

Anderson is next cuz he has a starting job inthe bigs. He'll get plenty of time to establish himself with Oakland since they aren't a win now team.

Holland is last cuz they are bringing him into the bully to start. I think he'll start soon, but he's really been rushed to this point and it's a questionable move. I do have him on my team so I am really hoping i am wrong.

Here's where I rank them in my list:

18 - Justin Smoak. 1B Tex. Great fantasy hitting prospect. Projects for both average and power. ETA late 2010.
22- Brett Anderson. P Oak. Great control pitcher, but limited ceiling. I don't think he will ever be a fantasy number 1 or 2, but could be a solid contributor to a staff. ETA now.
30 - Brett Wallace. 3B StL. Not great power potential (I think more 25 hr than 35), but high average and OBP guy. Some think he might have to move to 1B, but with Pujols, there is no room for him there. ETA late 2009.
36 - Derek Holland. P Tex. Kinda came out of no where last year, but was incredible. He was drafted in the 25th round, so may not have the pedigree of the other guys. I tend to shy away from young pitchers in hitter's parks. ETA late 2009 (I think he gets sent back down and comes back up later).
In my fridge: Founders Kentucky Breakfast Stout (KBS), Central Waters Peruvian Morning, Bell's Batch 10,000, Dale's Pale Ale, Capital Brewery Amber, New Glarus Moon Man, and Guinness.

If we are rating now, this is the way I would have it too.

If we are looking 3 years down the road I'd go...
Smoak
Wallace
Holland (He's got better raw stuff and a higher ceiling than Anderson)
Anderson

Agreed...although I might take Anderson over Holland based on the home parks. Smoak and Wallace are the top 2 because both will be very good fantasy hitters, especially Smoak because he'll hit more HRs.
