Posey, CSantana, the large group of 1B/CI prospects and a handful of pitchers like Martin Perez or hector Rondon (he'll be higher on lists this year than many expect) come in 2nd.

Your question is also a little misleading since you say that you're not looking for guys that will contribute right away but list other guys that I like in Beckham, Matusz, Holland, etc...

I don't need a guy that will contribute right away. I just want the guy that will contribute most (in theory) in 2011.

EDIT: Meant 2011, not 2010.

Brown,Dominic (Superb team - Can wait on him?)
Heyward,Jason (Braves not wanting to rush the best prospect in baseball?)
Jennings,Desm (TB won't call him up early and start the arbitration clock early?)
Montero,Jesus (2010 in limbo as a man without a position?)
Santana,Carlo (Catchers taking longer to develop?)

Complete gamble on guys who won't produce in 2010 but guys like Matsuz, Rondon, Holland, and established guys like Porcello should produce next year. The 5 I have are the best that could not do much at all in 2010 but the question is a crapshoot at best, I just took some uneducated guesses about them and why they may not break out until 2011.

I got Heyward and a pile of cash in a deal a couple days ago. ;-D

I'm still hoping I can get one more big name before our year ends on Dec 2nd.

Good choice because regardless of needs, if you can get Heyward, you get Heyward, no questions asked.
