And #60 according to the article on mlb.com is Norris (Derek not Chuck).  3 in the top 60 is above average.

Nice to see Storen above Crow, not so nice to see Smoak in the top 10

Does some have an article about why a corner OF is the top prospect in baseball? Unless he hits like a juiced up Bonds, how is it justified?

He hit 28 HR's last year. Yay?

I'm very happy to see Carlos Santanna doing well as he shifts from legendary axe man to catcher.

The right to negotiate with Crow.

We drafted Aaron Crow when Smoak was still on the board, much to the consternation of a number of the folks here.  Ultimately we drafted Drew Storen with the compensation pick we got for failing to sign Crow.

Why are Alcides Escobar and Neftali Feliz on this list? They've made it to the majors, so shouldn't they cease to be prospects?

45 days active excluding September, 130 ABs, or 45 (50?) IP.  Feliz did not get the innings (31) or the time (64 including September).  Escobar wasn't called up until mid August, IIRC, and had 125 ABs.
