A very impressive system, even before the acquisition of Marte and Shoppach from Boston.

Some of the ratings above will be controversial, particularly Adam Miller at Grade B-. Baseball America still rates him as the top pitching prospect in the system and one of the best in the game. This is true if he is healthy. I had horrible reports about him last summer, and while he did OK in the Arizona Fall League, I want additional proof that he is fully recovered from his elbow trouble. We will keep close track of Miller as the season progresses.

Mike Aubrey, if his back is OK, would move up several notches. I'm not a big Fausto Carmona fan.
