KLaw's mid-year top 50 prospects

35: Pomeranz Analysis: Looks like his delivery is a little cleaner than it was when Cleveland drafted him, although he's still going to have to work to repeat it enough to have average fastball command. His three-pitch mix makes him death to lefties and solid against righties as well. Preseason Ranking: 60 49: Kipnis Analysis: He's a Kelly Johnson-type player but a better pure hitter than Johnson has been. Preseason Ranking: 56 (link: $)

Indians Ink Top 100 Indians Prospects

Online, they are doing a 'countdown' from 100 to 1. I've got the print version in my hands. Here's the top 10: 1. Matt LaPorta 2. Carlos Santana (Ned Bavasi is one of my favorite GMs) 3. Adam Miller 4. Wes Hodges 5. Scott Lewis 6. Trevor Crowe 7. Jordan Brown (Really? A prospect?) 8. David Huff 9. Tony Sipp 10. Beau Mills Other 'notables' include De La Cruz at 12, Weglarz at 13, Rondon at 14, Valbuena at 15, Chisenhall at 24, Lofgren at 28, Goedert at 33, and Cirilo Cumberbatch at 63. T.J. McFarland is Mr. Irrelevant at 100. There's a story on LaPorta, but just a general Strength/Weakness overview of each player that's pretty short on stats. Each player also has a one to two-line 2009 projection.
