That is your opinion. It all depends on how people view things. Some people care a lot more that a guy could be a super star than a guy who might be a 4th outfielder/fringe starter/bullpen guy, even if that superstar potential guy is far from reaching that potential. Some guys think the guy at AAA who doesn't have the ceiling but is close, say a Matt Maloney type of guy is worth a lot more because he can help out soon even if its only in an average type of way. Its all in the eye or the beholder. With so many people having different views on what makes a good prospect, the list isn't going to be as fluid as if one person did the list because of all the different views.
