Norris dropped a lot.I expect Espinosa to outperform a lot on that list, too. He looks like he has pretty low bust potential at this point, while there will be a fair number of busts among those ranked ahead of him.
Even if you're right and Espinosa has a terrible year and is solid in 2012, that won't make him a bust. Espinosa will at least be an ML contributor as a solid glove at MI. There are lots of light hitting SS and 2B. There are players on that list ranked above #65 or whatever who will never see the majors.
Ramos also - he'll be a backup catcher at worst. He falls in that same category of maybe not having a super-high ceiling, but lower bust potential.
Really? I think Espinosa could bust out fairly easily with the hamate injury.When you have as big of a swing as he does... and your power is drained, you could be looking at a .200/.290/.330 line that gets him sent back to AAA.2012 should be a good year for him, though.

8 royals by my count. wow.
If all of them pan out - damn.
I wonder why they're so negative about Norris and Ramos. They're both sitting at a slot where guys have about a 25% chance of succeeding in the bigs. http://www.wnff.net/index.php/topic,21348.0.html
Aaron Crow was ranked number 40 last year. I wonder how many of the Top Prospects haven't played more than a handful of professional games.
This. It seems like the high first rounders always are listed the next year. Heck, I think Colton Willems was in the top 100 after he was drafted, and I know Marrero was for at least a couple of years.
Sort of a chicken-egg deal going on, though. How many guys are hanging around the bottom of the Top 100 because they have the first round tag?
