    Minor League Top Prospects

    In another thread someone brought up the question of if you had 5 picks of the entire Minor Leagues, who would you take for the future of your baseball team. I thought it might be a fun little topic to start on its on and see who some of you guys would take, in order if you had 10 picks, 5 pitchers and 5 position players, who would they be and in what order?

    Positional players
    1. Delmon Young - OF
    2. Brandon Wood - SS/2B
    3. Justin Upton - OF
    4. Jay Bruce - OF
    5. Cameron Maybin - OF

    Pitchers
    1. Homer Bailey
    2. Philip Hughes
    3. Matt Garza
    4. Yovani Gollardo
    5. Kyle Drabek

    Now I know I took a big leap of faith with Drabek, but after seeing him pitch, he has absolutely disgusting stuff, he has the pedigree and I just like what he brings to the table. He hasnt been overly impressive like some other pitchers drafted this year, but thats ok. I like his upside.

    I didn't go for the highest ceiling guys (ie. Upton, Young, Maybin), I chose players that have good ceilings and have proven themselves.

    Arms:
    1) Bailey
    2) Hughes
    3) Garza
    4) Hirsh
    5) Hochevar

    Bats:
    1) Wood
    2) Gordon
    3) Longoria
    4) Bruce
    5) Maybin

    No Young b/c he might end up killing an ump one day.

    No Butler b/c he might be a DH.

    No Upton(s) b/c Justin isn't doing much and BJ has attitude probs and fielding issues. Though I might have a 'tude if I was still in the minors and I was him.

    Bruce over Maybin...Cincy pride, baby.

    Tabata got some votes, but I have a hard time believing he's that young.

    Adenhart has injury questions.


    Not that I wouldn't mind having those guys, just giving some color on my decisions.
