Top Ten Prospects Right Now?

You've got to be insane not to take Prince Fielder. Best hitter in the minors, IMO, by a country mile.

What about the Royals hitter that had like 30 HR's in the minors so far? I'm surprised he didn't get called up after the Beltran trade.

I think that you have to put Marte on the list somewhere. He's got great potential and is the braves top prospect at the position that they most desperately need, 3B.
Seeing as the Braves have won 12 division titles in a row, does that mean that soon they are going to have to start making columns as well???

You mean Calvin Pickering...he isnt so young and Sweeney and Harvey are blocking his path to KC...I think Pick may be in a new uni by 7/31 though

I think the top 3 are Fielder, Young, Weeks. Really, like all 3 about the same. Young might have the highest upside in minors. Fielder at this point probably is the best hitting propect. Weeks has value for his position.

my list... by highest ceiling

1 - upton - all star potential short stop
2 - fielder - lotsa power
3 - young - lotsa power and good contact
4 - jackson - great stuff
5 - wright - solid fielder and hits for power/avg
6 - cain - 19 year old with 3 pitches.. tops 94-95
7 - hernandez - 18 year old with two stud pitches
8 - Marte - braves know their farm
9 - Santana - 3 pitch guy with a heater
10 - Jeff Francis - I know he's 23 but this guy is dominating AA ball (11-1) with complete command of three good pitches

Others: Kazmir, Kotchman, Morneau, Hamels, Floyd, Crain, McPherson, Weeks(?), Kinsler, Guzman

A lot has happened though this year, to go by a top 100 prospect list from the beginning of the year isn't that good. It's a good point to start from, but players stock have gone up and down since then.

Cain has a good fastball and curve but I don't think you can say his change up is right up there. I've heard nothing so far to claim he has 3 plus pitches, his change up is not that good yet.
