That’s the second source I’ve seen that ranks Johnson ahead of Elijah (Once in a Generation) Green.  I think I’ll chill and see how these 17/18 year olds do in their senior seasons.

Should probably be looking at college outfielders anyway.  😉

It makes me wonder if that's on purpose just to generate discussion and clicks.

The article puts some weight on Green’s “swing and miss” issues that have already even discussed here. In any case I’d expect half these kids will drop off this list by draft day. What they do next year on the field will probably matter about ten times more than what they’ve done up to now.

Greene reminds me of Bo Jackson. I think you have to take him over a guy that might be a 2B.

Looking at that list Chase DeLauter is the name that jumps out at me. 

Would it shock you if DeLauter is in the conversation for first overall?
-- @Nucklecurve

James Madison outfielder Chase DeLauter ranked sixth on our new college Top 20 prospects list for next year's Draft but he definitely could factor in the discussion for the top pick (which belongs to the Diamondbacks as of now). There's no clear frontrunner to go No. 1 overall and he has a lot to offer.

DeLauter is a physical athlete with a 6-foot-4, 235-pound frame, well above-average left-handed raw power, solid speed and arm strength. He also has one of the most disciplined approaches among the best prospects in the 2022 Draft. After hitting .386/.508/.723 in 26 games during the spring, he switched to wood bats this summer and topped the Cape Cod League in slugging (.589) while tying for the home run lead (nine in 34 games).

The highest picks in Dukes history are left-handers Brian McNichol (1995) and Dan Meyer (2002), who both went 34th overall en route to reaching the big leagues. DeLauter should surpass both of them and become the first James Madison first-rounder ever next spring.

I think some jumped the gun in anointing Green as the 1st pick - though he certainly could end up being it.  I particularly want to see how 3 of the pitchers - Lesko, Porter, and Ferris - do before the draft.  Or is the feeling that the O's won't take a HS pitcher first no matter what?

Long way from the draft. Johnson may not stick at SS, but the bat is special. Green can show amazing athleticism, but he is not Bo Jackson. A lot of swing and miss with Green, but we’ll see. Drew Jones might end up on the top of the heap. No weaknesses in his game.

I'm no expert, but I think Jones is a better prospect than Green.  Have you ever seen a more effortless looking short power swing - coming from a guy who's maybe 180 lbs?  His father might have become an all-time great if he had stayed in better shape.

    • And there was no three second rule in basketball. And soccer goalies could waste time dribbling like a basketball player after picking up a back pass from a field player. And…
    • According to the source I used, he was a RHP from Newport HS (WA).
    • I guess you’re too young to remember when the goalposts were at the front of the end zone.  Or when a jump shot from 24 feet was only worth 2 points.    
    • Imposter syndrome basically means you don't feel like you belong.
    • We should probably sign a catcher huh?
    • Part of the reason why we've seen the slashing style play go away is the astroturf fields from cookie cutter stadiums and domes are all gone. The Cardinals, Astros and Royals among other teams took advantage of their home field's playing surface. That meant hitters put the ball in play to take advantage of the bounciness of astroturf, and stealing more bases because the turf gave runners an advantage. Plus you saw teams valuing speed and athleticism over bigger players that swung for the fences. I liked seeing a mix in the styles of play between different franchises, whereas today pretty much all teams play the same style swinging for the fences.  
    • Even though the 60'6" has remained the same since 1893, the distance between the average of pitchers' release points and home plate has decreased because pitchers have gotten, on average, taller and longer-limbed. And the decrease over the past, say, 50 years has been significant. (For the same reason, there's also been an effective increase in the height of the mound.) I've seen some estimates, but I can't recall them right now. Nonetheless, I think it's more likely that the effort to produce the same effect will be made by increasing the number of pitches thrown by a pitcher, for example by limiting the number of pitchers used in a game or the number of pitchers on the 26-man roster. Other sports have been much more willing to change basic rules to improve the game: pro football has moved the goalposts, changed the extra-point and kickoff rules, added overtime, and protected quarterbacks and receivers. Basketball introduced the 3-point field goal, widened the lanes and banned zone defenses. Leagues in other sports haven't held their rules as sacrosanct as MLB. It's not practical for them to change the size of their standardized playing surfaces. There have been some suggestions to raise the baskets, and there's been some experimentation with that. At least some of those showed a drop in outside shooting accuracy and an increase in rebounding and the proportion of scoring by big guys -- not the desired effect.
