Halos Heaven's Top Angels Prospects

I'm eager to hear what the broader prospect-following community has to say about these rankings, which I compiled over at Halos Heaven. I calculated the +/- bat and runs saved numbers myself using the run context of each league, and Sean Smith, creator of TotalZone, was kind enough to provide me with the numbers I used for the +/- glove. Interviews with John Sickels, Alex Eisenberg, and Andy Seiler were also part of the series.

Remember, this isn't just a list - if you click through for each of the players, you'll find individual player profiles, histories, links to video and arguments for the more controversial rankings.
