Help me choose the best ONE of this list!

Postby dcskater619 » Mon Jan 15, 2007 7:06 pm

My last minor league pick is coming up (12 teams, 8 minor leaguers each) and I have to decide between some good players..My current minor league roster consists of: Delmon Young, Phillip Hughes, Tim Lincecum, Ryan Braun, Angel Villalona, Ian Stewart, and Sean Gallagher.. Here is what i have to choose from (best available):

Wes Bankston 1B
John Danks SP
Franklin Morales SP
Eric Campbell 3B
Nolan Reimold OF
Chris Volstad SP
Elvis Andrus SS
Anthony Swarzak SP
Eric Patterson 2B
Phillip Humber SP
Yunel Escobar SS
Sean Rogriguez SS
Bryan LaHair 1B
Eric Hurley SP
Troy Patton SP
Ryan Sweeney OF
Dexter Fowler OF
Gio Gonzalez SP
Glen Perkins SP
Brandon Morrow SP
Trevor Crowe 2B
Brad Snyder OF
Kyle Drabek SP
Wade Davis SP
Ricky Romero SP
Joe Koshansky 1B
Sean West SP

Is there any clear cut, cant miss prospect from this list? There are quite a few I really like, with Bankston looking like the clear best available in my eyes. I'm just wondering what everyone else thinks. Thanks!

some good guys there but I think I'm going to pick Danks. He's a lefty that was 21 pitching in AAA. He just got traded to the White Sox and hasa real shot at the #5 spot in the rotation. He's a little wild but he's really advanced and gets Ks.

Sean Rodriguez might be a solid choice with your last pick!

Wes Bankston doesn't even look like he will be an average big leaguer. And you'll be sorry if you go with John Danks or Sean Rodriguez.

It's between Franklin Morales, Eric Hurley, Jeff Niemann, and Dexter Fowler for me.

Niemann is not even on his list.

Almost half the guys on your list are better than Bankston.

I dont see any cant-miss guys. For roto, my top 3 would be Sweeney, Crowe and Fowler. Then Andrus, Reimold, Patton, Danks, Volstad, Hurley. Definitely would not take a Rockies pitcher like Morales too early, if at all, in a roto league.

Ooops, I meant Humber.

P.S. Why have so many people missed the memo that humidors work? If you aren't going to take a Rockies pitcher, you better have second thoughts about Reds, Royals, and Diamondbacks pitchers, too. Coors isn't an outlier anymore, it's just on the upper end -- HUGE difference.

Sweeney is one of the most overrated prospects in the minors. I don't think he will even become an average big leaguer.
