The Bill James Gold Mine 2010 says the Phillies rank 12th in the Majors in young talent.

“The Phillies are above the midpoint in young pitching, with Hamels, Happ and Madson, near the midpoint in the other two areas, young position players and prospects,” James said. “The top five: Cole Hamels, Ryan Howard, Shane Victorino, Chase Utley and J.A. Happ. (Howard and Utley are not really “young” players, but players of that quality retain value for a long time, and thus remain counted among the young stars.)”
