Working on the Padres

The Padres farm system has struck me as underrated the last couple of years. The '09 draft added a bunch of athletic upside to the system, and combining that with the polished guys they already have makes this system extremely interesting.

It's also hard to cut this down to 40 players. I've found over 50 worth writing about but that many simply won't fit in the book. Here is the preliminary list...but there are others who could move on or off it. Make the case for anyone you like who isn't here.
