Need some quick help with ranking a few pitchers and hitters

Postby PedroFan45 » Mon Dec 03, 2007 10:27 am

I have a pick coming up soon in a minor league draft in a dynasty league. Below are the available players, how would you rank them based mostly on potential?

Josh Vitters
Jarrod Parker
Justin Masterson
Pedro Alvarez
Beau Mills
Chris Marerro
Elvis Andrus
Matt LaPorta
Adam Miller

If you don't start your list with Pedro Alvarez, it will be a mistake. He will be an absolute monster in the big leagues somewhat like Alex Gordon will be soon.

I would say:
Alvarez
Marrero
Mills
LaPorta (what will he play defensively?)
Vitters
Parker (electric young arm)
Miller (worried about injuries)
Andrus
Masterson

Sorry, I don't know much about college players, so Alvarez could be at the top or bottom for all I know. :-B

first may i suggest staying away from the pitchers...Only GOD knows and he could change his mind.
Vitters looks like he has the most potential fresh out of highschool 3rd player picked last june.laporta is your most polished hitter university of florida talk has him at 3b and braun moving to left.
Mills has power but had lousey year in A ball might take awhile.

alot are down on vitters, i am myself but not totaly i'm waiting to see what he does this year.

right now i'm dead set on Marerro reaching his massive potential he reminds me somewhat of Snider. i think both will be .300 30+ players, Laporta reminds me of Burrell only i dont see him following the same path he has .280 40+ potential.

Good info guys, thanks for the help. I ended up going with Marerro and Alvarez will probably be around for my next pick
