That's a good point. Although I'm often reluctant to rank relievers as top prospects due to the limited value they can bring to a team, it is fairly common for a reliever to come up and have a few successful seasons before fading into obscurity, whereas a position player is a lot more likely to be a complete hit-or-miss. I guess what I'm saying is that I probably put less emphasis on ceiling than a lot of other people do, which might explain why I have Juan Duran at #9 and Devin Lohman at #7.
