Ummm, Alan Horne, anyone? What about Jesus Montero, can he get a little love? I dunno about you, but really like Brandon Laird – I think he’s a major sleeper, but 10th? Nah.

Categories : Minors
  • E-ROC

    #8 Chase Wright and #9 Jeff Marquez? UGH!

  • Ben K.

    Did they pull those names out of thin air?

  • Alex

    laird: 45 games, 6 walks? ugh.

  • scott

    Ok time to trade Chase Wright apparently his value is high. Who knew?

  • Count Zero

    Chase and Laird are really, really stretching it.

  • Bo

    chase wright ahead of horne?

  • Al the Man

    This guy Brandon Laird looks like a beast. Alan Horne is the biggest shocker not on this list. Chase Wright??? You think we can show this to the Twins and get Santana? haha

  • Nefarious Jackson

    Chase Wright? Laird? Brackman having played zero pro ball? No Horne is a joke, and I would have put Jario Heredia & Abe Almonte ahead of Wright & Laird(taking into account age, tools, ceilings, etc)

  • Nefarious Jackson

    And Montero no lower than 7

  • H-Man

    yeah that top ten was definitely a joke…. Humberto Sanchez cannot still be ranked that high after his injury, and brackman doesn’t figure to pitch competitively for another year…

  • Pablo Zevallos

    This ranking is pretty bad, 7-9.
