Newberg's top 72 prospects

Editor note: formatting corrected.

The Newberg has posted his top 72 prospects to the mailing list, which I thought would make for a good LSB discussion. Dirkatron will be saddened to find Marcus Lemon barely clinging to prospect status at 62. I was a little surprised to find Skole missing the top 10 at 11, but Jamey is evidently bullish on David Perez at 9. Given that Perez hasn't even appeared stateside, that's a very intriguing decision. I can't wait to see Perez in action this spring. I like Christian Villanueva getting the top 20 love but I'm not sure I agree with him being ranked ahead of Mike Olt. Regardless, I think this could be a breakout year for hitting prospects in this organization when you look at those two, Beltre, Profar, and a few others.

In any event, the top 72 should make a nice basis for discussion. I'll also add this- Jamey's list went to print before Barret Loux was signed. Where would you slot Loux on this list?
