Domonic Brown is the definite one for me. I don't know if he'll start the year in the majors (I think he has a chance to get the start over Ibanez out of spring training), but he's talented and he's ready to contribute.

The 4th is a little trickier. Matzek may have the most upside, but he appears to be pretty far away and had huge control issues this past season. Britton probably doesn't have elite upside, but I think he's the safest pick to turn into a solid starter and he's fairly close to getting an opportunity in Baltimore. I generally avoid New York prospects because I personally find they're almost always rated higher than they should be, so that eliminates Brackman and Holt for me. And Jordan Danks had a pretty poor season, and I never bought the hype on him anyway. So, I guess it's Maztek and Britton for me, depending on how much you want to gamble.

jimenez is the real deal, and i understand the intrigue of prospects, but really how many pan out?

I wouldn't deal a young ACE for a slew of "potential".

Hey i know the minors somewhat, probably no where near you or some others, but you know what Ubaldo brings, you dont know how some of these other guys will be at the pro level.

I wouldn't deal Jimenez for those prospects unless my hand was forced via league rules or such.
