Future Shock: San Francisco Giants Top 11 Prospects

It's not good, but then again, the team also did just win a ring.

The Braves are consistently among the best systems, and are again thanks to the game's most impressive collection of Latin American pitching talent.

Future Shock: Texas Rangers Top 11 Prospects

Kevin Goldstein

One of the best systems in the game has dropped due to a combination of graduations, trades, and disappointments, but there's still plenty of young talent to dream on.

There's no more Adrian Gonzalez in the big leagues, but at least the trade rescued an otherwise moribund system.

A look at the first basemen on this year's Hall of Fame ballot.

Having kicked off this year's JAWS series with the starting pitchers, today we turn our attention to the first basemen, a slate which includes the ballot's best newcomer as well as its most controversial first-timer, and a few holdovers who aren't going anywhere for entirely different reasons.

Prospectus Hit and Run: Class of 2011: Starting Pitchers

16

Jay Jaffe

Bert Blyleven, in his final year of eligibility, makes his last stand for Cooperstown.

It's fair to say that in these quarters, the 2011 Hall of Fame ballot is the most hotly anticipated one in the eight seasons since I began covering the Cooperstown beat for Baseball Prospectus. That's because when the 2010 ballot results were announced back on January 6, Bert Blyleven fell just five votes short of enshrinement, receiving 74.2 percent of the necessary 75 percent. As disappointing as his close-but-no-cigar showing in his 13th year on the ballot might have been, Blyleven's tally represented a significant surge from the 62.7 percent he received the year before. After a long, hard climb from his having receiving less than 20 percent in each of his first three years on the ballot, his election is so close that the pitcher and all of those who have supported him over the years can practically taste it.

The Astros' system is better than last year, though that's not saying much.

No surprise who tops the list, but is there enough talent overall to get the Nationals out of the National League East cellar?
