I could have sworn Mauer went that year too.

In fact, I could've sworn he went first in the year Prior went second.
Yes, I was, uh... I was thinking about ordering the tape, the videotape... about the college girls and the... the wild... the wildness. They're going wild or something? Somebody told me... about going wild.

These aren't players drafted in 2002 but a list of the best prospects back in 2002.

They kind of screwed up on Betemit. Just goes to show you how quickly things change.

Most of them have made it to the majors. Wilson Betemit, once named "the best prospect of the organization", just plain sucks though and I'm not sure he's gonna turn it around either.....

Byrd hit over .300 his rookie year, with 10+ homers, some SBs. Then hit .230 for 2 months or so while platooning and was sent to the minors.

Obviously, Crawford is still better, but it's a list of best prospects, not a list of how they've done in the majors. Because judging Byrd on 2+ months of platooning isn't really fair.

Yea, I guess I was thinking about it the wrong way. I was just suprised to see Crawford ranked at 40 by the way his career has panned out.
