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.
Well let me just ask you this Doug, how much weight do you give ceiling? How little weight do you give proximity to the majors? Do you try to give them equal billing? Do you try not to give ceiling way too much weight? Where do you draw the line and why?
