What I saw in HS when the Mets first looked at him...some nasty stuff.

I think voting for Kay in this range is fair. You didn't need pro samples to know Conforto was one of our best prospects when we drafted him. We didn't see much of Peterson and picked him #2. Dunn is #6 purely on draft reports.

From draft reports, Kay sounds like he could be a fairly fast riser. No reason to object to him being here even if I voted Guillorme.

Well in addition, advanced college samples are more useful than low level rookie ball pro samples anyway. Alonso and Guillorme are really the only ones we've voted onto the list yet who have even played A+ or higher.

A few played in the SAL, but neither Gimenez or Lindsay were dominant there, and while Szapucki was, he only made 6 starts there. And they're already on the list. The guys who have played at higher levels just don't seem to have great ceilings. Your choices there now are guys like Cecchini, Nido, Oswalt, and Bashlor.
