Minors Draft Pick #5: Help Quick! WHIR

Postby rmande09 » Thu Jan 22, 2009 11:18 am

We're in the process of doing the Minor League Draft, and I have the fifth pick. Players available are all the players who were drafted in the 2008 Draft and SIGNED (no Crow) and International Signings over the past year. Here's who has been taken thus far:

1. Justin Smoak
2. Pedro Alvarez
3. Yonder Alonso
4. Eric Hosmer
5. . . .

No surprises really. My pick is basically down to Posey, Matusz, G. Beckham, or [INSERT NAME HERE]. I've also sent e-mail's to two GM's, offering the pick for their (1)Rick Porcello and (2)Mike Stanton. Haven't hear back from them yet, but we'll see.

Anyway, what would you suggest? Stanton, Porcello, Posey, Matusz, Beckham, or another? Please rank them, at least a few of them, because if I can't pull off a trade for Porcello or Stanton, I'll need to go to my next option, and I bet most will say Porcello/Stanton.

FWIW, I'm not really interested in Posey. I have C. Santana on my Minors, Joe Mauer and Jeff Clement on my Majors (and I have them for another 3 years), and Posey just doesn't do it for me. My preference actually falls with Beckham, but I feel like it's awfully early to take him. Thanks for any help!

I would be most interested in Porcello or Wallace.
