Who are the best prospects in baseball (at each position)?
Young qualifies as 26 or under:
Provide a lineup of hitters plus three starting pitchers, and 2 relievers (can be middle, setup, closer, etc.) Here's me example:
Catcher: Rusell Martin
First Base: Prince Fielder
Second Base: Robinson Cano
Third Base: Miguel Cabrera (over David Wright
Shortstop: Jose Reyes (over Hardy and Hanley Ramirez)
Left Field: Carl Crawford
Center Field: Grady Sizemore
Right Field: Delmon Young
Starting Pitcher: Felix Hernandez
Starting Pitcher: Justin Verlander
Starting Pitcher: Cole Hamels
Relief Pitcher: Francisco Rodriguez
Relief Pitcher: Chad Billingsey (because he's been pitching mostly in relief this year)
Good point, I forgot about Jenks.
And actually prospect doesn't have to be a minor leaguer-every year SI.com does a list of baseball's top 50 prospects-and they don't even have to be young

Well prospect means a guy who isn't in the majors or isn't permanently in the majors. The guys you mentioned are proven major leaguers. A prospect is a guy like Justin Upton or Andy LaRoche. A guy like Jarrod Saltalamacchia is an example of a prospect. He is unproven and isn't a fixture right now because there a still talks of him being sent back down. He is still a prospect.

I do not see a single prospect on the list. Most of the players you have listed have been playing in the bigs for three or so years.
Hint: Prospects means AAA/AA players. Not Carl Crawford who has been a full time base stealer since 2003.

interior the overdue 70s, the Giants traded shortstop Chris Speier to the Expos for shortstop Tim Foli - a thoroughly pointless, ridiculous and pointless commerce (grew to become out to be lots greater effective for the Expos). playstation - suited one via James there - I forgot approximately that one and the humorous element grow to be each physique concept the Padres have been given the in basic terms right deal on the time.
