First I'd like to thank Brick for doing the community prospect list. This isn't really connected, and I don't want him thinking I'm stepping on his toes, so I wanted to get that out of the way. With that done, I wanted to post my top 10 prospects list.
The WAR is a combination of ceiling and production exhibited thus far. Rundown:
Price - Obvious. Great everything, should dominate.
Beckham - Physical tools are there, no production yet, but I'm not concerned.
Davis - I see him comparing to Dustin McGowan. I'm concerned about his performance this year.
Hellickson - Scott Baker deux.
Jennings - Injuries are concerning. Physical tools are there, production as well.
Talbot - My love.
Brignac - In the end, I'm unsure of how much offense translates over. Banking on his defense being in the +5 range.
Perez - Good defense, unsure of his bat.
McGee/Niemann - It's hard to be a really, really good reliever. I think both have chances of being around Howell's 2008 level.
It's hard to judge the younger players, so I tried avoiding guys like Matt Moore. Thoughts?
