Add Scott Green from Kentucky to the pitchers list.
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.

how does Alvarez compare to other college hitters that were top draft picks (i.e. gordon, braun) .. it seems like he's gonna go top 3 this year

As far as college #s go, he compares very well.....but so do alot of the hitters I listed above...on #'s alone. Its hard to say unless you've seen them play before. This is where all the scouting blogs of those who have seen them play come in handy more than looking at #'s.

Pat Venditte i would love to see this guy make the big leagues as a lefty/righty specialist. I think he could become very valuable to a team i wonder though if a team would tell him to choose one or the other and work out the mechanics on one side instead of 2.

That would be a shame. I'm very interested to see how he would be used in the majors, whether in relief or as a starter. It could certainly become more interesting if a game is on the line and lineups can't be dictated by which arm the pitcher's going to be throwing with.

Nate Freiman, Richie Sexson part duex ;-D

I wouldn't mind the Rays snagging him in the 2nd round or beyond. Isn't a first round talent but has plenty of projection left in his tall frame.
