i think some guys like matt cain, billinglsey, ect are overhyped due to good #'s in A, but they walk alot or theres just something im not sure about so i left em off.. and guys like clint everts and greg miller i left off b/c of injury i guess..

this is just me, but I wouldn't put Capellan in the top 20 or 30. I would take Cain in the top 20 though and maybe Billingsly as well, though probably around 25. I also wouldn't put Ian Kinsler, Dopirak, McCarthy, Maine or Blanton in the top 40 either and Barfield is questionable. I do agree with Barton and Adam Miller that high though. I also agree that McPherson should be in the 20's.

I was looking at prospects at work today, so this list is off top of my head. Anyone called up after August 1 is on my list....kind of in my order of preference.

BJ Upton
Delmon Young...future stud
Jeremy Reed...K/BB ratio amazing.
Scott Kazmir
Dallas McPherson...I don't like him, but he'll have trade value
Rickie Weeks
Prince Fielder
Felix Hernandez...young, great stuff
Andy Marte...injuries have slowed him a bit
Gavin Floyd...may help this year
Ian Stewart
Jeremy Hermida?
Joel Guzman
Jose Lopez....young and overlooked
Adam Miller
Greg Miller/Cole Hamels....same guy to me. Great stuff, big injuries.
Jesse Crain
Jeff Francoeur
Jason Kubel....I'll wait a year for this guy
Kendry Morales
Justin Upton...high school, but supposedly better than his brother

nobody seems to talk about lastings milledge for the mets, but i think he's probably around 20 or 25 as well. he's not far behind the other high school stud hitting prospects from 2003...delmon and ian stewart, who i think are both top 5.

I definitely like Ian Stewart and should probably put him in my top 20 instead of Justin Upton, since he is still in high school. Lastings Milledge has nice potential also and would make a list of my top 50 prospects.
