since the team came to town, zimmerman was never really down in the minors long enough to be a prospect ... but i liked lannan for a while as he shot up through the system. balester and zimmermann, too, but now they are in the bigs.
as for now, i've been a pretty big fan of desmond, marrero, norris and hood the last couple years. i remember watching boomer whiting in college, thinking holy hell how fast is this white dude?
i've adopted a.j. morris and taylor jordan as prospects to keep an eye on over the next few years. and eric arnesen has impressed me this year.
of course we all love stephen strasburg.
