Top 50 Prospects – Player Pool

This week I sent out the first draft of the Top 50 to a group of people for initial review.  The list itself will go through significant revisions between now and when it is released this spring.  What has been narrowed down is the main player pool I am working with.  There is a lot of names here to discuss, feel free to debate overall and within the positional groupings.

    Matt, there is more quality talent on your list than I would have imagined. It looks like we have good prospects coming up at SS (Crawford), 3B (Franco), CF (Quinn), LHP (Biddle & Morgan), RHP (Nola & Ogando), 2B (Pullin & Valetin) and RF (Dugan & Pujols). The Phillies need someone to break out in their Catching, 1B and LF prospects to assert themselves as future MLB starters. Thanks for the informative article.
