Basically a similar opinion to many on this site: "Impact talent? Not really. Depth? You betcha." Four-Star Prospects 1. Brett Jackson, OF 2. Trey McNutt, RHP 3. Chris Archer, RHP Three-Star Prospects 4. Josh Vitters, 3B 5. Hak-Ju Lee, SS 6. Chris Carpenter, RHP 7. Hayden Simpson, RHP 8. Reggie Golden, OF 9. Jay Jackson, RHP 10. Robinson Lopez, RHP 11. Brandon Guyer, OF Another interesting note is that he has Marquez Smith as our 13th best prospect. Probably somebody we shouldn't have exposed to the Rule 5 draft.

God bless Ron Santo.
