WOW! Three five-star prospects! That's more than I've seen (though I'll have to check what he's given other teams), but Goldstein doesn't give the five stars to just anyone.

I love the inclusion of Robinson Lopez in the top-10, KG always surprises us with someone. About Lopez, KG says:  "Yet another talented Latin arm, Lopez signed for just $110,000 in late 2008, but he looked to be worth far more than that in his pro debut."

His sleeper pick is Benino Pruneda. I keep waiting for Pruneda to bust out, maybe this will be the year.
