Although this system doesn't look much better than the Astros on the surface, there are a lot of guys at the lower levels who got Grade Cs but who look like very promising guys to me, we just need to see more from them at higher levels. This includes guys like Michael Anton, Douglas Brandt, Barret Browning, Clay Fuller, Andrew Romine, and Trevor Reckling, all of them Grade C but with intriguing potential.

Of course, full statistics and reports on over 1,000 other players will be in the 2008 Baseball Prospect Book, now available for pre-order. Ships the first Monday in February!
