Since a number of these guys won't likely make the top 100, at least not for awhile, I think it might be interesting to see who the kings and princes of the not-yet elite are; maybe quite a few of these will sneak on in the latter half of a top 100. Generally, I find these guys more fascinating to rank and talk about than the super hyped dudes. So, I'm taking the top performers from my previous post and putting them together with other guys of a similar stripe, to see who you all think is the most likely to make the leap to eliteness & sexiness next year. If nothing else, this might be a fun sub-category to explore in terms of who should get pushed into the Community Prospect polling.
Who else should be included in the discussion?
Who is most likely to become the super sexy breakout pitching prospect of 08?
