-Yes use the number 2 overall pick on Jose Altuve and don't think twice about it.
-It is entirely possible that Scooter Gennett did a Daniel Murphy as far as tapping into impressive power midway through his career but be careful how much you are willing to pay to find out if 3017 was legit.
-Yoan Moncada has all the potential in the world but his so far losing battle to the strikeout is holding him back.
-Love Dee Gordon this season and the fact he gains outfield eligibility is an added bonus.  Early third round seems good to me.
-Overall this is an aging position (Pedroia, Cano, Kinsler, Phillips) with not much in the way of sleepers outside of Moncada and Drury.
-Speaking of Murphy, the injuries are beginning to pile up as he moves toward his mid-30's.  This feels like a declining stock.

  1. Not much love for Whit Merrifield?? A full season of starting and you're looking at 20HRs, 40SBs and 100 runs...I'd even put him in the top 5!
