macthomason (Tuscaloosa, AL): Would Andy Marte still be considered the #1 prospect if (as seems likely) shifted to an outfield corner?

Rany Jazayerli: If Andy Marte played left field last year, then no, he wouldn’t rank #1. On the other hand, he would probably rank no lower than #3, and it’s quite possible that if he *does* switch to a corner outfield spot, his offense might blossom even faster. Bottom line is he’s a monster of a prospect, and gets next to no attention.
