How did our Top Prospects do in 2007?

I thought I would go back and look at how our Top 35 prospects did in 2007.  First, I took my ranking system that was completed last fall and added the new players acquired in the Santana and Garza/Bartlett trades.  Some of you have criticized this system in the past, and each year I have made adjustments taking into consideration some of your comments.  It also must be noted that this system does give a player credit the higher they move in the system, thus, those players playing in the rookie leagues or Low A ball for example, will not score as well as someone in AA or AAA.  Also, please note that in my system pitchers and position players are ranked separately...thus there are two number 1's, two number 2's, etc.  I have also include each pitchers Dominance Ratio (DR=Strikeouts divided by Walks + Hits).  

The raw scores will be somewhat meaningless without having all the information from which they are compiled, they are included however to give an indication of how closely some players were to another while others were clearly significantly different.  My system is not intended to rank prospects, rather, it ranks individual performance during the season taking into consideration each players age/league comparison and level of play.  Kevin Slowey and Scott Baker were included in my rankings as the #1 and #3 pitchers in the system, respectively.  Garrett Guzman was ranked third following Pridie and Gomez.  Finally, do not compare pitcher scores to position player scores as they have no relationship whatsoever.
