I was looking at Chacin. Among some other pitchers I was thinking Hellickson, Feliz, Matusz, Stanton and Wallace.

Brett Cecil. In the same draft as Price he hasn't progressed to AAA quicker.

Is Cecil going to stay a closer??? I havent read anything about him since Maryland, but I know he was a closer there...has he already been made into a starter???

Do you value him higher than Chacin, Feliz, Hellickson, etc.

Villalona plays 1B, not 3B anymore.


I value him more than most people would. Ranking-wise they are all around the same spot. Cecil will probably reach MLB before those three though.

I like Chacin better than all of those guys. My next choice would be Feliz.

I would've taken Freddie Freeman, he's already considered a top 5 1B prospect at the age of 18 and he's the 1B of the future for the Braves.
