Alvarez is tops for sure. I'd personally take Smoak ahead of Moustakas at the moment because I'm a big fan of taking the lower risk players. Moustakas top level of competition is 40 some at-bats in rookie ball. I'll take Smoak's college experience suggesting a lower risk over Moustakas potential (saying nothing about Smoak's potential).

thanks for the response...

What is Smoak's status? Drafted (signed)? signing next season?

Definitely Alvarez over Moustakas because their ceiling is basically the same but Alvarez will be up at least a year earlier. I'd probably give Moustakas the nod over Smoak right now because Moose has more potential and plays a premium position (for now).

yeah, same here. Ive seen Alvarez play in person on more than one occasion and he is really something. Guy can flat out hit.
Is pushing for President Obama to pass a law requiring all citizens to be Chicago White Sox fans and make October 1st "White Sox Day" where we all dress as our favorite player. It maybe socialist, but I don't care.

Totally agree, which is why I am praying the Rays take Alvarez number 1
