Marrero keeps on falling and falling and falling.

2012, he won't even be on the list, me thinks.

Here's last year's list....

Here is their Nationals Top 10

1. Stephen Strasburg
2. Derek Norris
3. Drew Storen
4. Ian Desmond
5. Danny Espinosa
6. Chris Marrero
7. Jeff Kobernus
8. Justin Maxwell
9. Michael Burgess
10. Destin Hood

Well, there's something to be said about the progress of the organization.

I'll take the '11 list any day, over the '10 list.

Very true. Puke Maxwell.

Kobernus injury prone. Hood was okay but needs lots of improvement.

Burgess not on '11 the list over Marrero. Interesting.

Cole Kimball made the biggest jump from '10 to '11. Went from erratic thrower with big arm to a legit late innings MLB relief prospect.

Eury Perez had a fantastic second half of '10. Hope he continues to succeed in Potomac in '11.

Guys who just missed the list I would say:
1. Michael Burgess - Had a decent '10 showing. Did well in abbreviated AA stint and fared okay in AFL. Will probably start year in AA. Time to put up some power numbers and keep Ks down.
2. Tyler Moore - Monster year in Potomac. Slugging pct through the roof during hot few months. Can he carry over success to AA in 2011?
3. Robbie Ray - Highly regarded prep arm. Will he pitch in Vermont or Hagerstown to start in '11? How he pitches in the Spring will determine this.
4. Rick Hague - High college draft pick who slipped a little after up and down year. Hit very well in Hagerstown but struggled defensively. Likely to start year in Potomac.
5. JP Ramirez - Hit well at times at Hagerstown and showed good power. Will need to continue to improve plate approach and hit more homers. Likely to start in Potomac.

Others: Brad Meyers (Will he ever be healthy?), Destin Hood (Toolsy prospect but has awful plate approach), Tom Milone (Can he defy scouting reports and perform at a high level in the Majors?), Danny Rosenbaum (Flashes of excellence in A and A+, highly polished college Arm and he's a lefty), Steve Lombardozzi (Hits well and plays solid defense. But can he be more than a utility guy?).

For me there's a big drop-off after No 6. Brad Pea**** is in our top 10? Yikes.

i see your point, but i think cole kimball is just figuring things out.  all reports on him are glowing, it sounds like he could be something special.

i'm not as high on eury perez as others on here, but it sounds like he continues to improve.

Pea**** 17 Ks to 3 BB in 12 AFL innings.

148 Ks in 142 IP between A+ and AA last year. Turns 23 in February. This kid has a chance. Not bad for a 41st round pick (draft and follow).

My guess is someone at BA was in love with his fastball and strikeout numbers and threw him in based off of that.  The good news is, if you were to extend the list out to 15 or even 20, it would look leaps and bounds better than those that have come before.

Two guys I really like (have seen both play on multiple occasions) that probably did not deserve to make the list this year, but really should be watched are Danny Rosenbaum and Steve Lombardozzi.  Maybe they do not have the best physical tools in the system, but both of these guys are gamers and have incredible baseball IQ.  Lombardozzi has a fantastic approach at the plate and is very smart when playing balls on defense.  Rosenbaum attacks batters, but also manages to fool a lot of hitters.  Both are guys I can not help but root for.

Who was it that said that Brad Meyers and Tom Milone were top 150 prospects in baseball? More like top 150 in the Nationals crappy system.

Probably PCan.

As for Milone... he's never going to grace a prospect list, neither will Lombardozzi.

But, that doesn't mean they can't turn out to be productive major leaguers.

Who was it that naged when Meyers was exposed to the Rule V draft?
