9. Randall Delgado, RHP

11. Kris Medlen, RHP
Just Missed: John Gilmore, 3B; Craig Kimbrell, RHP; Jeff Locke, LHP
A lot of great prospects up there. It's nice to see we have two five-star guys, and there's Randall Delgado again.
The real kicker is what Goldstein says in his summary:
The Braves have a solid core of young talent, but for the most part it's not going to help this team get any better in 2009. The Braves are a solid long-term play, but a trade of top prospects for Jake Peavy would be a mistake, simply guaranteeing a solid run at mediocrity, as opposed to having the patience to wait out a possible return to National League East glory at the beginning of the next decade.
It's no wonder Mr. Goldstein is a friend of the blog.
