Not sure if this is a fan site or not but they are predicting Jarred Kelenic, a lefty hitting High school OF from Wisconsin

And here is a BBA article about him:

You know I really feel like Peter Alonso is a better prospect than Dom Smith. He just seems more of an all around hitter than Smith. Though he really needs to clean up those errors he made at 1b this year.

I'm wondering if Phill Evans is eligible?
Not that I'm voting for him at #1.
But I do think he could be in the top 10 at this point.
Might even make my top 5.

I went with Peterson

He comes into the system with a pretty high floor

And I think he has a higher ceiling than most people give him credit for

did BA do a top 20 for the appy league yet?

I'm wondering where Vientos lands on that list

I'm torn between him and Gimenez for 2nd pick

Evans is eligible and has now been nominated. He will replace the winner of this poll (presumably Gimenez).

We're essentially right back where we were after 2010.

Awesome. Good job all around.

It's really not the same thing. The 2010 team had no young tallent on the roster and several bad contracts like Johan, Bay, Ollie, K-Rod

The 2017 team has young talent in Conforto, Rosario, Thor, Dom, maybe Nimmo, deGrom locked up for a few years and really just 2 bad contracts, Wright & Cespedes, and if Cespedes would stay healthy, his contract isn't so bad.

Well hey now hindsight!!

23 yr old 1st rounder Ike Davis was at 1B.
24 year old Lucas Duda made his debut in September.
How about those 27 year olds at SS and 3B? Think they were decent.
Believe we had a pair of 20 year olds ranked (I think) 1 and 2 in the system debut late that season in Tejada and Fernando.
Seem to remember most liking 23 year old Josh Thole setting himself up for a long run behind the plate (certainly looked better prepared at that time than 27 year old TdA does now).

Average age of the 2010 team was 28.3. Average age of the 2017 team was 29.0.

Don't forget Reese Havens, Cesar Puello and Wilmer Flores :lol:

Ike - yes.
Wright - he was a little bit older but yes.
Reyes - no. He was a year away from free agency. (shoulda been traded).
Duda wasn't considered a prospect until 2011. Some fans might have liked him but he wasn't a great prospect.
Nobody had Josh Thole ranked high - I remember cause I liked him, but as a prospect he was never even Kevin Plawecki.
But I'll give you Fernando.

I respect trying to undo any revisionism, that's always a good approach. I'm also not going to go into details cause it would get long and drawn out, but I think this team is in better shape than 2010. 2010 had more aging talent, like Dickey's break out year & Beltran and they'd drafted Matt Harvey, so . . . maybe, but I still think 2017 there's a lot more upside than 2010 and I think 2018 will be a much stronger season (knock on wood - stay healthy) than 2011 was. I think 2018 will have a lot more talent on the roster than 2011 did.

You forgot the most debated kid that season, the 20 year old Mejia who was either going to be King Felix or Mo Rivera :twisted: :twisted:
