KLaw ranks Freeman behind first base prospects Eric Hosmer, Brandon Belt, and Anthony Rizzo.

Franklin had a solid 2010 season where he went 23-65-25-.283-.354-.486.
So, one can assume that Harper has 80 power and could be in KLaw's top 5 prospects in 2011. Later in the chat, KLaw stated that there is a 25% chance that Harper gets a cup of coffee in September 2011. He also sees Harper starting out at High-A Potomac for the Nationals.
More after the jump:
Wow. Those are very solid "conservative" peak numbers for Belt. I have the 2nd pick in the UBA minor league draft next spring, and am leaning toward taking either Belt or Cardinals third base prospect Zach Cox.
Speaking of Cox:
Very interesting that the Cardinals were considering bringing him up this past season. Curious if he makes the Cardinals opening day roster in 2011.
Grandal or Mesoraco as the reds catcher of the future?
Both have big bats, so it will be interesting to see how the Reds handle the catcher situation in the next year or two. I am curious why the Reds would want to re-sign Ramon Hernandez with these two guys lurking.

^&^(* the Giants. We got 4 rings to their none. 1989. That's how the Bay Area market works
Well, I'm reasonably certain you didn't post this from the A's stadium, unless you are actually an empty seat.
Gotta love Klaw's humor. Some people don't get him sometimes, but he usually has a few zingers in every chat.

"Belt, Rizzo, Freeman for the Big Four 1b prospects." If still eligible, where would Logan Morrison slot in this group?
Behind Hosmer, ahead of Belt. I admit I might be the president of Morrison's fan club, though.
At least he is honest about his allegiance to Morrison, but interesting nonetheless, as some question Morrison's power as well.
