Some that haven't been mentioned (in no real order):

- K. Davies - Atl
- G. Miller - L.A.
- S. Olsen - Fla
- G. Floyd - Phi.
- Y. Petit - NYM
- M. Hinickley - D.C.
- Z. Duke - Pit
- A. Guzman - Chi.
- A. Reyes - Stl
- T. Stauffer - S.D.
- H. Bailey, Cin. & M. Rogers, Mil. - both real young but are the best young pitching prospects from the last draft (not taking into account college SP's)

That's pretty much all the notable SP prospects in the NL, left off a few cause they will more then likely pitch in relief.

Ich, Hybrid, I expected better of you. I think you're the only person at the cafe with the same or more MiLB knowledge than I. Stauffer? They make good stuffing, but he's nothing more than a #4 pitcher in the majors. Not good enough for a fantasy rotation. Other than that the list looks pretty good. I'm not sold on Davies, Duke, or Hinckley, but I definitely think they have serious potential.

BTW, let's keep Homer Bailey as our little secret and pinky swear to never utter his name again until he becomes a household name. Mmmm stuff and "Greinke-like" poise.

Also if you're going to give Greg Miller some love, you might as well including Jonathon Broxton and most certainly Chuck Tiffany. Merkin Valdez too.
It's easy, fun, and 100% safe!

lol, I never said I like Stauffer. But he is in the NL and should be in the rotation fairly soon, and afterall that is what he asked for. As for the other 3, I'm not sold on them either, just trying to give the guy a variety of names to look at.

I like Greg Miller a lot more then the guys you named even with the injury. Valdez is one of those guys I think will just end up being a RP or closer. Not sold on either Tiffany or Broxton for various reasons and they weren't high in the minors so I didn't see that big of a need to add them.

Hope that clears up everything :-b

Oh and yeah Homer can be our secret ;-7

Wow, I searched the entire Minor League forum, and Germano's name came up a total of one time! This guy was amazing in AAA, in the PCL, and he's only 22! Why is he being overlooked? To me, he looks like one of the best pitchers in the minors. He'll also be pitching in Petco when he gets called up.
