Yeah, I think it should be Erbe, but from Tony's comments I dunno. He said there was one guy we'd be surprised at how low he was. I mean, I think most people had Erbe higher than 9, but would 9 be shocking? I feel like a shocker would be him outside the Top 10.

All that aside, I'm going with Erbe.

This one is tough - IMO - given Tony's less-than-flattering remarks on Erbe and DHernandez. It would be difficult for me to believe that a guy like Britton, who failed for the second consecutive year to make his league top 20, would make up so much ground on Erbe in one year. One must like Britton's BAA and his ground-ball ratios, but one would also like to see the Ks a bit higher. I think Adams has no chance here.

I must say that I really like Patton here, but maybe Tony knows something about the re-hab we don't. Patton was a former BA Top 100 and, if he is going to come back healthy, then it's my opinon that Patton should be close to Spoone.

If there's going to be a statement with this list, it could be here with Hoes - a local product who is showing the best plate discipline from an Os drafted HS player in years. If the Os project Hoes to be a plus, everyday player at 2B, then he beats out a lot of other prospects, doesn't he? I'm very uncomfortable with this selection, but I will put my 7-1 record on the line with our third round pick this year - Hoes.
