I assume this is based on fantasy and not actual value...

1. Alverez
2. TBeckham
3. Smoak
4. Alonso
5. Posey
6. Hicks
8. Wallace
9. Perry
10. GBeckham

With Smoak and Alonso at 3 & 4, what is it about Hosmer that you don't like?

I'll say ...

1. Pedro Alvarez - Most interesting talent w/ top potential
2. Justin Smoak - Seriously, in Texas? ... that is all
3. Gordon Beckham - Great pop and home park for a middle INF, and could move off to 2B for more value
4. Eric Hosmer - Have to wait, but has an amazing power bat
5. Yonder Alonso - solid across the board in a great park
6. Brian Matusz - Pretty safe top end SP option, but doesn't have #1 potential
7. Buster Posey - Not sold on his bat, but since he is a catcher I'll give this spot
8. Tim Beckham - Not sold on his bat either, and will likely take a while
9. Brett Wallace - Just not a big fan

I'm not sure I trust the Royals to develop him properly and I think Smoak and Alonso are more polished and will move more quickly.
