    - Top 3 pitchers are nearly interchangeable, Shooter could easily hold the top spot and may see the majors this season
4. Beamer McCallum 20, 1B Chicago- Season 41 1st Overall Pick
    - Top hitting prospect in Capra, dominated the minors last season, future MVP candidate
5. Albert Espinoza 23, C Iowa City- Season 40 International $14 Million

Hardball Dynasty'sJose Almonte
Jose Almonte
Years Active: -2 to 11
Years with North Stars: 0-11
Claim to fame: 1,496 consecutive games played (Capra record)
Awards: All-Star (1, 4), Silver Slugger (4)

Almonte was an on-base machine, with 7 seasons of .400 OBP or better. That was also his career mark and he had 7 100-walk seasons. He also scored 92 or more runs each of the first 5 seasons of Capra, and hit 38 doubles in season 4. A forearm nerve injury ended his record games-played streak, particularly impressive considering he was a catcher.

Wilson had a long career and finished it with 3 straight seasons hitting over .300 with the club. His .322/.381/.547 slash line at age 34 was impressive.
