11 Yonder Alonso........ 1B Ranger's
12 Brett Wallace........ 3B A's
13 Shooter Hunter........ RHP Cards

15 Aaron Hicks........ OF Dodger's
16 Tim Melville........ RHP Brewers
17 Conor Gillaspie........ 3B Bjays

Few things:

1. I dont think Posey is worth #1 overall, or top 5 for that matter. Just my opinion though but I think ESPN is hyping this guy up way to much because they think he will go one.

2. The Bucs are really, really, really, likely to go with Alvarez. Its seems like a forgone conclusion at this point.

3. If the Yankees got Gerrit Cole I would just go insane. Really hope that happens, seems like it could.

Don't forget about signability issues with Alvarez. The Pirates seem to have a history of shying away from the big signees in the draft, so I'd be shocked to see them go with Alvarez.

The Pirates say money won't dictate who they pick this year, but who knows how true that is?
Beckham could go #1, which would make it an easy choice for the Bucs to take Alvarez. The draft is really a crap shoot so who knows? I just had fun making the list.

That was former management. The management said this year that they have worked with Scott Boris and have never had an issue with him or his players being signed. The Pirates are going to take Alvarez. They have no clear cut 3B at this point. Some say Walker down in the minors will be it but I'm not to sure about that.

I will be upset if the Yankees get Cole. I guess he wants a huge signing bonus so there might be a possibility he slips, I would be ecstatic is he fell to 30.
