I don't know who runs GROTA, but they have a list as well: http://www.goatriders.org/taxonomy/term/155
Scout.com has a Top 20 list, but the only way is to be a member (or google and view cached - if this breaks any rules, feel free to delete). There were some intriguing nuggets of information in the scout.com list.
Baseball America came out with their list today. What I like was that this was done by Callis. In the past, I think they've had Rogers do it before. For those that don't know, BA is heavily based upon discussions with front office personnel for each team. So, along with their typical tools oriented slant, this can be somewhat viewed as a snapshot of sorts of how the team's leadership may feel at the moment, along with the writer's opinions mixed in.
I can buy the top 10 list. No big issues there. I like the fact that they had Castro (they messed up Starlin's last name) that highly ranked. I think something's that noticeable and disappointing is that, in terms of best pitches, Lambert and Cashner should both end up as pen arms.
As noted, I find the projected lineup ideas somewhat unnecessary, as the chances of us building a team/filling our holes just from internal options seems slim. As noted, I find it unlikely Colvin will be our starting OF in 2012. With Bradley locked in, he won't get RF in 2011 (besides the fact that he lacks a top RF arm.) If he gets back on track and is good, he'll most likely be a trade asset, IMO, to fill in our holes in 2009 and 2010.
I don't really buy Harden resigned to a long term deal after 2009, but I guess if the Ricketts (hopefully, or whoever is the new owner) infuse money, maybe. I tend to think that the Cubs will give Samardzija a rotation look in 2010 at least. I don't buy Cashner as a rotation option.
Interesting list, though. And with this, the major organizations/websites (Sickels/BP/BA) that put out Cubs offseason lists are largely done, I think, unless I am missing one.
