Here's the culmination of an offseason of research. Adam F., Lincoln, and Brett alone spent over 24 discussing this list.
Though they lack pitching prospects, the Marlins have one the deepest farm systems in all of baseball.
With upside in Aumont and Halman as well as potential regulars in Saunders and Tuiasosopo, this system is in solid shape.

There's a good chance that Justin Upton will be the top hitter in baseball under the age of 25 from 2010 to 2012.
LaPorta, Santana, Weglarz and Mills mean the Indians' future lineup is in good shape. And Huff will likely help the rotation.

The Giants have two potential stars in Madison Bumgarner and Buster Posey. Both players could be in the big leagues in 2010.
With Clayton Kershaw now graduated to the big leagues, the Dodgers no longer have one standout guy.
Where have you gone Mike Rizzo? Aside from its top three prospects, Arizona's farm system is in terrible shape right now.
The Cubs don't have an elite upper-level hitter, but Josh Vitters could become that guy.
St. Louis' minor league system has more depth than you may think.
Though Mat Gamel and Alcides Escobar have some obstacles to overcome, they both could become solid big leaguers.
Between Jason Heyward, Tommy Hanson, and Jordan Schafer, the Braves have one of the best 1-2-3 prospect punches around.
We see a steep dropoff after Travis Snider, Brett Cecil, and David Cooper. Those three, however, are pretty talented.
All 14 players on this list are arguably among the top 200 prospects in all of baseball, the majority of which are top-100 types.
There is some upside here. But we're looking at three '08 draft picks, a SP turned CF, and a potential RP in the Top 5.
Stephen Strasburg, Dustin Ackley, and Grant Green sit atop Lincoln Hamilton's first 2009 draft board.
Led by Jordan Walden, the Angels have some talented pitching prospects on the way.
Just because Strasburg and Darvish aren't signed to MLB contracts doesn't mean they aren't among the top pitchers in the world.
David Price has already made national noise, but Madison Bumgarner and Brett Anderson both have similar potential.
Though they are all under the age of 26, we see Upton, Braun, and Markakis as the top corner outfielders in baseball.

The Marlins and Rangers have some great hitters on the way. The Angels, Astros, Tigers, and D'Backs do not.
Call us crazy, but we're confident that Justin Upton is going to have a better MLB career than Ryan Braun.
With Travis Snider, Jason Heyward, and Matt LaPorta leading the way, corner outfield has some powerful prospects on the rise.
In an effort to create a 2010 Top 10 prospect list, 19 of our community members combined rankings -- editor lists also included.
We see Grady Sizemore as the best all-around center fielder in baseball, with B.J. Upton only slightly behind him.
B.J. Upton's 2008 playoff performance may have been his breakout party, but we expect 2009 to be his breakout season.
Home to some of the best athletes in the game, center field is loaded with elite prospects, such as Cameron Maybin.
David Wright is the best third baseman in baseball, but he isn't far ahead of Evan Longoria.
Evan Longoria exploded on the scene and joined the elite third basemen in the game last season. Who's next?
Brett Sullivan's Dominance Factor statistic is weighted in order to provide a more accurate look at 2008's dominant starters.
