Very well put. Pretty much every prospect list I've seen, which take into account position scarcity, has him at #2 on their lists, behind Felix and well ahead of Weeks. Since they are real-life lists, you could bump Young up even further due to his steals. I'm sure Weeks will get drafted earlier than Young next year, but based on what Young's done in his minor league career, 20/20 seems quite possible right off the bat.
In all seriousness, I agree with both of you. Delmon has th capability to be one heck of a player (as does Weeks, I suppose). However, don't be suprised if it is not instantaneous.
