I think anybody who is taking this topic that seriously probably isn't worth the time. Obviously the definition of a prospect involves and arbitrary drawing of the line. If you use HF criteria, that includes Josi but not Faulk. If you use Calder eligibility, then somebody like Kyle Palmieri isn't a prospect either. Everybody should accept that limitation before bothering with such a discussion.
That's why these kinds of topics are pointless fodder and are kind of more suited to the Polls board than here. In the unlikely event an interesting discussion emerges, it will be swallowed up by homerism-laden bickering.

Still, you're drawing an arbitrary line which will exclude some players. By next week, that would exclude Jeff Petry, for example, while including somebody like Jamie McBain.
