I don't think FMart has been discussed enough. I don't like his ranking. He's been hurt almost every year in the minors (injury-prone). His plate discipline is so-so. If you dismiss his one spectacular month last year you have to go back to 2006 to find a decent season. He doesn't steal bases. he has a very high GB rate (making it difficult to hit a lot HR's). Do you know who he reminds me of? Delmon Young.

I'm not sure if Ethan Martin belongs in top 50 over some other guys, like hudson montgomery stewart etc...

I would take that bet in a heartbeat. Heyward is the top prospect and nobody needs to justify ranking him their, especially when the context is fantasy baseball. I don't know who you consider "experts" but well over 10% of them will have Heyward #1.

Keith Law and Jonathan Mayo came out with their lists today and both have Heyward #1.

Thanks for the news. I posted both of their top 50 lists in the 1st post of this thread.

I swear I logged on today just to eat crow by pointing this out. I admit I was very wrong.
