The best young core in baseball?


So im totally hijacking this from MLB Trade Rumors, but i thought it was a great discussion. The question: Which team has the best young core in baseball. Im guessing young core includes all prospects and players with less than 3 or 4 years of ML experience. Sound good?

Here are some candidates:

Braves: You guys know em; Hanson, Medlen, McCann, Heyward, Freeman, Schafer, Jurrjens, C. Johnson, Esco and Jeff Francoeur (JUST KIDDING.)

Dodgers: Chad Billingsley, Jonathan Broxton, Andre Ethier, Matt Kemp, James Loney, Clayton KershawRussell Martin

Rays: Matt Garza, Scott Kazmir, Evan Longoria, Dioner Navarro, David Price, BJ Upton

Dbacks: Justin UptonStephen Drew, Mark Reynolds, Jarrod Parker, Chris Young, Max Scherzer, Chris Schnider

Red Sox: Dan Bard, Jacoby Ellsbury, Jon Lester, Jed Lowrie, Justin Masterson, Dustin Pedroia

And there are a few more teams such as the Rangers, Rockies and Marlins with some not to shabby youngsters as well.

I gotta go with the Dodgers in first by a pretty good margin. That team is stacked and will be the next 5 years. 2nd goes to a tie between the Red Sox and Rays. And i gotta like our Braves at 3rd. If our big 3 at Myrtle Beach really turn it on the rest of the season, maybe we slide into that 2nd place slot.

What do you guys think? Which team has the best young core of players?
