I think Paul Goldschmidt should be a major factor in there. Goldschmidt is 25. I would put him 1st for 2013 ahead of Freeman.
Like others have said, he's way above these guys so it's pointless to include him.
Yes, Goldschmidt is going ahead of all these other guys in drafts, so I didn't consider him. The one concern with Goldschmidt are his splits versus lefties and righties. Thus far at the major league level, he has a .996 OPS against and a .796 OPS against. I don't have his minor league splits to know if he was better against lefties down there as well or if this is just a fluke. It could easily be, as it is only with 670 at bats and he could easily improve against righties as he gets more experience. Even if he doesn't, an OPS of around .800 versus righties isn't bad and not a platoon-worthy.
