It's really sad that most of the top 5 are guys that have no shot at truly making a difference at the big league level. Let's hope Wade and Heck can fix that.

Good observation. I thought a similar thing when I was picking the five. Usually, there are prospects doing well in a given week. For some reason this week, except for Ori, all the top performers were journeymen. For the record, Trinidad at Corpus and Parraz at Salem were next in line.
