Some observations and the individual breakdown after the jump.


  • I am apparently the only person who likes Todd Redmond as a prospect. Team USA performance people.
  • Julio Teheran almost snuck into second place ahead of Freeman.
  • I left off Edgar Osuna, who finished 17th, since he's now a member of the Braves-Central (aka the Royals).
  • I think there was some serious lobbying for Robinson Lopez and Andy Otero, both of whom snuck into the top-25. But not enough love for Caleb Brewer, who actually think more highly of.
  • No one outside of CB, Matt, and myself liked Matt Kennelly.
  • 2010 draftees RSF and Mycal Jones barely missed the top-25, while Hale and Minor made the list.
  • Pitching dominated the list, including 9 left-handed starting pitchers (10 if you count Osuna).
  • Here is a link to last year's (2009) results.

Here is the full list. Click on it to enlarge. Sorry if it's still small, but I had to make it that way to fit it all on the print screen.
