Stewart(lots of potential, i just really like this guy)
Blanton(has done well, and might be in the starting rotation next year)
Mathis(hes a catcher so it would be good to have him)

I agree with Blanton, Stewart, and Mathis. Sleeth won't get enough run support, IMO.

Well, I'd throw Sleeth back, given his struggles in double-A and the fact that I don't like to draft minor league pitchers.

Other than that, I'd have a hard time choosing between Mathis and Kinsler. Both had flukey seasons last year, far from their norms. Mathis was terrible and Kinsler was incredible. I'd probably keep Kinsler and hope for the best.

And Stewart and Blanton are obviously keepers.

Kinsler. Too many high profile catchers have not panned out that I just don't trust C prospects. While Mauer worked out, K. Hill, Buck, J. Huber, JR House, Petrick, etc. haven't. Don't know what it is, but these guys are average players, at best.
