    Parenthetical numbers are pre-season 2012 and 2011 rankings, respectively.

    New draftees at 4, 7, 21, 28, 31, 36, 41, 44, 50, 55, and 59.

    That is a good draft.

    2011's draftees are at 15, 17, 20, 26, 37, 39, 40, 43, 47, 52, 54, 56.

    The 2011 and 2012 drafts have gone a long way to re-stocking the system with talent. 8 of the top 28 prospects have been drafted in the past two years.

    A positional breakdown and prospect movement trends (part 2) will be soon in coming.

    I enjoyed the list (though I don't necessarily agree with it!)

    The list is a great point of referrence regardless of any potential debate on the order.

    I hate forgetting someone. Pedro Florimon is about 35 or so. And there are a bunch of relievers at Fort Myers and Beloit right now that could be added at the bottom for now.

    While people may not like where I put Buxton, that could change after 100 plate appearances. The only player I went high on was Berrios, because I think he is a sleeper pick. I would rather generally be moving these guys UP after they start playing than having to move them down.

    Can't argue with that, other than the absense of players who are at the DSL right now. If you include current draftees, I think you got to include at least a couple of the DSL kids in this list.
