It’s a little unfortunate for both Kingham and McPherson not to be rated higher, but a testament to what’s available, as noted by Lee Young.

If he starts at AAA in ’12 does he project to be first in the ‘wave’ of pitching prospects to hit the MLB rotation full time?

1 Question: When you say number 3 starter … does that mean number 3 starter for the Pirates, or number 3 starter for any ML team?  Or to clarify it further … would that mean number 3 starter compared to what the Pirates have now, or some future scenario?

The 11-50 rankings and scouting reports will be in the Prospect Guide. Dickerson didn’t make the top 10.

…Where would Alex Dickerson rank?  Does he have any chance of being legit?  What kind of time table would it be for him?

I remember the days when guys like Kingham and McPh were in our top 5.
