As a Cubs fan, I’m glad to see Starlin Castro ranked so high, but also a little dissapointed that Josh Vitters is number 30. It’s not that I disagree with the rank, but that back in 2007 and 2008, Josh was supposed to be the next Ryan Howard the way everyone was talking. I was really excited that the Cubs had the number 3 overall pick and was hoping to they’d get someone good with it. You never know though, he might still pan out. I guess it’s time to start getting excited about Starlin Castro now..

So how does your teams top prospects rank? Are you surprised with the rankings at all?


  1. Carlos Santana at #3? The guy is like 60 years old!! 🙂

  2. Hahah hey its Carlos, anythings possible for him to do…
