Ill do Turnbull is nobody else wants to.
Thanks, RD.  Turnbull is one who may have less coverage, so it'd be great if we had him written up here.

Great!  If you can pull in a few links to evaluations of him, post up some of his college statistics, etc... that makes for a strong start to a thread.  Look at the Milone thread for a good one, or anyof the ones started by Linty.

Updated first post on this thread.  Nice job, Imref!

Still looking for Meyer, Goodwin, and Komatsu.  Also Danny Rosenbaum, Micheal Taylor, and Josh Smoker.

RD added Turnbull.  Still looking for Meyer and Goodwin among the draft choices, Rosenbaum and Smoker among long time system guys, Michael Taylor for a rising prospect, and Eric Komatsu for recent trade depth.  Let's get'em started!

As for Cutter, I bumped old FTP threads for new stats if no one has posted in a while. Except Cutter.

Is he still in the organization? Ha. Only kidding... But he's quickly playing his way out of a job.

Off the top of my head, if Goodwin is 10,you have Ray, Lombo, Taylor, Keyes, Solis, Milone, and Moore before Komatsu. Id probably include guys like Turnbull and Skole before Komatsu as well, knowing that they project better. I think Walter ranks higher than Komatsu, based on the new additions. Komatsu's upside is as a top reserve. Not the type of thing you rank very highly on prospect rankings.
Based on RD's list, we need more threads!   I've lined out the ones that are already started, and bolded the ones that are still needed.

I guess he's become my project.  I started his FTP thread and posted a response to your point about the Harper / EK outfield.  What was fun about putting that thread together (and I took most of last night to do it) was trying to integrate the various write ups about him.

He has pitched more than 100 innings in the majors.  He is no longer rookie eligible, so therefore is no longer a prospect.  Sort of similar to Bally at the start of the year and StAAAAmen.  No reason not to start a  dedicated thread or resurrect an old thread about him (search Shairon Martis and see if there is one).

We probably could use one on Patrick Lehman because he is going to the AFL.  

There is a thread started on Alex Meyer, but it lacks a lot of the basics about him.  Either use that or start a fresh thread.  The Rafael Martin thread could use some bio and scouting, too.

Also, I think a thread is in the works for Michael Taylor Kevin Keyes by JMU.

There is an article on MASN saying that a high A pitcher of the Nats last year has been hitting triple digits with his fastball in Venezuela this winter.  Says he will probably start in AA next year.

Thanks for bringing this up, I had thought I had already wrapped up my two threads.  I have some stuff for the Keyes thread, but it is still a little light.  Its a work in progress...

ZDK / SF - Do you feel like pulling his B-R stat line, the link to the MASN article, and anything else to start a thread for Nelo?  Did anyone see him at Potomac?

Wilmer Difo looks like a good guy to keep an eye on.  He is a 19 year old SS who turns 20 in April.  Last year he had 31 steals in 233 ABs while only being caught 11 times.  Thats a 74% success rate and that's pretty good for such a young guy.  What strikes me most is his strikeout to walk ratio.  Last year he had 37 walks and 28 steals.  That is very impressive because it seems like every latin american kid comes up and doesn't know what a walk is.  I like this guy.
