Jim Callis names 2 Giants among top 10 NL Prospects

From the recent ask BA....

http://www.baseballamerica.com/today/prospects/ask-ba/2009/267429.html

 

1. Pedro Alvarez, 3b, Pirates
Spring injury, summer holdout overshadow his devastating hitting ability.
2. Madison Bumgarner, lhp, Giants
Showed much more polish than expected in first full season, led minors with 1.46 ERA.
3. Colby Rasmus, of, Cardinals
The best player developed by St. Louis since Albert Pujols is ready for the majors at 22.
4. Buster Posey, c, Giants
Has the tools to become the NL's version of Joe Mauer.
5. Tommy Hanson, rhp, Braves
Displayed four plus pitches at times while blowing away Arizona Fall League hitters.
6. Logan Morrison, 1b, Marlins
The best hitter in the minors who hasn't received the hype he deserves.
7. Jason Heyward, of, Braves
It's still unfathomable how he lasted 14 picks in the 2007 draft.
8. Dexter Fowler, of, Rockies
Colorado has done a fine job of developing the once-raw Fowler.
9. Cameron Maybin, of, Marlins
Strikeouts are still a concern, but there's a lot of Andre Dawson in him.
10. Mike Stanton, of, Marlins
Hit 39 homers in first full season after turning down a shot to play two sports at USC.

 

I personally think Hanson could probably be rated a bit higher, Even possibly #3. and push the Buster down to #5. But maybe that's just me. I think we would all be pleased if Posey became the NL version of Mauer, who as stands looks like a perennial MVP candidate. Pretty scary to think of how good the Marlins might be if they actually spent money. They already have plenty of talent in the majors and have much more on the way. Kinda depressing when you think about it. Poor Hanley.
