I think there's only 8 definite top prospects anyway (the 6 I listed plus Maybin and Kershaw) and then 9-25 is basically interchangeable so he could fit anywhere in that range. The 6 I listed are the group that are the safest blend of potential and proven production. Kershaw issues alot of walks and Maybin is still more tools than numbers at this point.

Age aside, I think Fuku's stats in Japan are more impressive than, say, Rasmus' numbers in the minors. I agree he's not a potential top 25 fantasy player ever, and maybe Rasmus is, but if you're looking for production over a 4 year span, I'd take Fukudome in the top 5 or 6.

IMO his numbers will be at best similar to a prime JD Drew. Solid OBP & slugging, but only 20-25 homers with less than 100 rbis.
