Mike Minor at $5 on 2nd year (his contract decision is 2014)
Gerritt Cole (4 years @ $5 with long-term option)

or

Billy Hamilton (4 years @ $5 with long term option)

Gerritt Cole. I am still not convinced that Hamilton will hit when he gets to the majors but I will say it is getting harder not to believe the more he moves up. Gerritt Cole has ace like stuff and while he is a few years away, his upside is a lot higher than Hamilton.

I think I'd go for Hamilton here. Cole is a great prospect, but he carries his own risk - his performance has been somewhat erratic and he hasn't quite lived up to his dominating stuff. I do think he'll turn into a great pitcher, but the thing about Hamilton is that - while he does carry risk - he has the potential to simply dominate a category, by himself, in a way that we haven't seen since Vince Coleman.

I take MInor and Cole, not sure Hamilton will be for real. Best case is Michael Bourn for me.

I'd go with Hamilton. Cole looks to have electric stuff but he Is a pitcher. Hamilton's ceiling is sky high. I look at it this way, there are a lot of young pitchers with electric stuff. How many guys have the potential to steal a hundred bases in a season?

If Hamilton were carrying SS eligibility it would be him easily. But as an OF'er it makes it harder. I would go with the power arm in Cole.
