  Notes:
    I'm moving Francisco Liriano from Grade C+ to Grade B based on recent positive health and velocity reports.    
    The rating of Jason Kubel at Grade A- might be controversial due to his severe knee injury. He would be a pure Grade A if healthy, but it is possible that he should be downgraded to B+ or even Grade B due to the severity of the injury. I want more information before doing that, however.
    I'm no longer counting Joe Mauer as a prospect, since I think his performance level has been established.
    Watch for Adam Harben. I think he is a major, major sleeper.
    Boof Bonser and Travis Boyer look overrated at B-. Both are probably closer to C+, but right now I will leave them where they are and take responsibility if the book grades turn out to be too aggressive. Per reader input, I have altered the list to include Terry Tiffee since he is closer to the Show.
