Jesus Montero is on the list too. LOL if he's on PED you certainly can't tell. Or perhaps he's so bad, he needs them to be a mediocre hitter. You'd think if a guy could walk on water or turn water to wine that he could hit a curveball.
Why so harsh? He just played his first full season in the majors and is only 23 years old. Give it time, dude.
Yeah, I think Montero will be a pretty serviceable ball player. I don't think he'll live up to the top prospect hype, but nonetheless, still a perennial 20-25 HR's a year, .260 AVG guy. He'll have a role for somebody in this league, unless he is implicated (haven't read the story).

re: MLB: ONE WEEK!
ESPN's Keith Law has the list of the 100 Top Prospects out now...
GIANTS have two right-handed starting pitching prospects in that Top 100: Kyle Crick at #76 and Clayton Blackburn at #79.
Oh hell yeah.
Chris Stratton is pretty damned good down on the farm, too.
Joe Panik and Gary Brown are our two best position player prospects, and Heath Hembree has the velocity if he can fully develop the control to be a quality Major League set-up man or possibly future closer.
