    Prospects

    1) Matt Wieters, C, Grade A: Best prospect in baseball. Mutant cross between Mauer and Piazza.
    2) Josh Vitters
    3) Madison Bumgarner 
    2) Chris Tillman, RHP, Grade B+: Want to see sharper command, but I’m very impressed overall, especially given his age.
    3) Brian Matusz, LHP, Grade B+: Not David Price, but should advance quickly due to sharp command of solid stuff.
    4) Jake Arrieta, RHP, Grade B+: Very high ceiling, command still an issue at times, but can dominate.
    5) Brandon Erbe, RHP, Grade B: Made progress after difficult ’07 season. Double-A transition critical.
    6) Nolan Reimold, OF, Grade B-: A bit old for a prospect now, but power bat should carry forward.
    7) Zach Britton, LHP, Grade B-: Love the groundballs this guy gets, young, good stuff, a sleeper.
    8) Brandon Snyder, 1B, Grade B-: Horrible glove, but bat took a big step forward last year.
    9) David Hernandez, RHP, Grade B-: I still think people are underrating this guy. Needs to lower walks.
    10) Troy Patton, LHP, Grade C+: If health reports are accurate, he should rebound. Useful pitcher but not likely a star.
    11) Kam "The Almighty" Mickolio, RHP, Grade C+: I am Mickolio. I need control for my fastball. Waahhooo…arrruuddicacacaa
    12) Bill Rowell, 3B, Grade C+: I will cut him slack due to youth, but at some point he needs to hit. Bad reports about makeup are troublesome.
    13) Ryan Adams, 2B, Grade C+: Interesting bat, raw, needs better discipline.
    14) Xavier Avery, OF, Grade C+: Very fast, very young, raw, won’t move fast.
    15) Oliver Drake, RHP, Grade C+: For some reason, this guy stands out as a sleeper to me.
    16) Brad Bergesen, RHP, Grade C+: Polished strike-thrower type. For some reason I like him. Maybe a Grade C?
    17) Pedro Beato, RHP, Grade C: Velocity down, mechanics a mess, reportedly did well in instructional league.
    18) Caleb Joseph, C, Grade C: Good glove, power bat, but plate discipline a question.
    19) Lou Montanez, OF, Grade C: Too old for higher grade, could rank higher on this list if you want immediate impact.
    20) L.J. Hoes, 2B, Grade C: Fast, gets on base, athletic, a long way away.

    Others include Colin Allen, Matt Angle, Jose Barajas, Tim Bascom, Jesse Beal, Jason Berken, Bobby Bundy, Tony Butler, Mike Costanzo, Tyler Henson, Kyle Hudson, Bob McCrory, Greg Miclat, Nathan Moreau, Wilfrido Perez, Felix Romero, Chorye Spoone, and Richard Zagone are also included and should be considered interchangeable with the Grade Cs above depending on what you want to emphasize.

    Prospects.

     Michael Taylor, OF, Grade B: Made huge progress refining his tools. Want to see Double-A numbers.

     J.A. Happ, LHP, Grade B-: Made big progress in second try in Triple-A. Still see him as Mark Redman type.

    Jose Bonilla- promising but a long way off
    6) Dominic Brown, OF, Grade B-: Tools guy with developing skills, improved discipline.
    7) Zach Collier, OF, Grade B-: Grade is speculative, but I like his ceiling a lot. Will need time.

    9) Joe Savery, LHP, Grade C+: I held onto him as a Grade B for too long this year, components don’t support it.

    10) Lou Marson, C, Grade C+: Good plate discipline and defense, but batting average at Reading could be flukey.

    11) Kyle Drabek, RHP, Grade C+: Could rank much higher if command is back after Tommy John. Will know more by mid-season 2009. Performance has not matched hype but still young.

    13) Drew Naylor, RHP, Grade C+: Sleeper Australian pitcher should be tracked.

    14) Mike Stutes, RHP, Grade C+: Much better as a pro than he was at Oregon State.

    15) Vance Worley, RHP, Grade C+: Very impressive pro debut.

    16) Antonio Bastardo, LHP, Grade C+: I’ve overrated him in the past, but still see potential here.

    17) Anthony Gose, OF, Grade C+: Willing to be a little patient here due to tools, but high risk.

    18) Chance Chapman, RHP, Grade C: Old for the level, but good numbers this year and I saw him in college, has a nice slider.

    19) Anthony Hewitt, OF, Grade C: Quite frankly, Anthony Hewitt sucks as a baseball player right now. I will cut him some slack due to his tools and youth, but I am very skeptical about his bat.

    20) Jeremy Slayden, OF, Grade C: The exact opposite of Hewitt, Slayden has mediocre tools but good baseball skills. Main problem is age-relative-to-league.

     

    Others in the book are Quintin Berry, Andrew Carpenter, Sergio Escalona (an interesting LOOGY type), Freddy Galvis, Edgar Garcia, Harold Garcia, Brad Harman, Jason Jaramillo, Travis Mattair, Trevor May, B.J. Rosenberg, Julian Sampson, Mike Schwimer, Colby Shreve, and Sebastian Valle.
