At first glance I was not sure how this farm system would come out. There were a lot of players who put up big numbers either due to age comparative to league or being in a hitter friendly environment, or both.
But the Rockies have some good upside in the middle infield and a lot of depth in the outfield mixed in with some good arms but no real projected ace pitcher in the mix at this point.
Below are my top 16 prospects with 2012 opening day age, position, and comments on each player. Below the top 16 is a small list of additional notable names. Enjoy.

There is no need to bore you with multiple paragraphs that you will not read or maybe skim over at best. Everyone wants to see the list, whether they will agree with it or not. One note is that I did not include anyone that does not qualify as a rookie, meaning anyone over 130 at-bats, over 50 innings pitched, or more than 45 days on the active roster will not make my list. Hope you enjoy it, critique it, and then tell me how awesome I am.
I kid, but seriously, without further ado here is the list:
