Was listed as #2 OF, but is #3 overall behind Angels OF Mike Trout & Rays P Jeremy Hellickson. I have a feeling we see the kid in DC this year. Bad news is he's the only Nats prospect in Top 50

KC has 6? Damn.
They have one of the most ridiculously stacked farm systems in a long time. Even crazier is that most of their really great prospects are close to the majors.They could actually field a good team within the next 3 years. It's about damn time.The same can't be said of the Pirates and Orioles.
Or, unfortunately the Nats, whose farm system is average, at best.
Better than being the worst by a large margin which is what it was prior to Rizzo coming on board.
This. I looked through that media guide book, or whatever it was, and they showed the top 10 prospects for each year since being here... 05 and 06 looked soooo crappy.
Dayton Moore will trade them all away for Wil Nieves and Ryan Langerhans.
Why is Chapman still a prospect? MLB Network is showing the countdown btw, it's nice to see a little film on some of these kids.
He still qualifies as a rookie. BTW, Mayo doesn't think he'll cut it as a starter.
I LOVE where KC is going. They've got Tampa Bay like upside. I'll be very interested to watch as guys like Moustakas, Collins, and Montgomery start trickling in to the majors next season, followed in 2012 by a massive wave of prospects like Colon, Hosmer, and their army of starters. I'll also keep a close eye on Alcides "It looks like I was highly overrated by ESPN" Escobar.
I'm not enamored at all with KC. Even the best of prospects often run into problems. Matt Weiters, for example, was supposed to Buster Posey before anyone had ever heard of Buster Posey. KC will do well if over half of their high end prospects pan out. If 4 out of the 6 prospects they have on this list become good major leaguers, that's a decent ratio. That leaves them almost halfway towards fielding a major league lineup. And they've lost how many games over past several years?I'll pass on the 'KC model.'
