In your opinion, does Borchering project to go in the 1st rd or 1st Supplemental? It's early, but he's on my list of hopefuls for the O's 2nd rd pick.

Yeah, I think when all is said and done he will go in the Supplemental. With a good Spring he could be swiped towards the end of the 1st round if a team really likes his bat. He has an outstanding arm and I think he is solid enough to stay at 3B, long term.

Davidson is tops in both defense and hitting and power, yet he doesn't make Pappas's top 10. Does this mean that 3B is relatively weak this year or you have a higher opinion of him?

I have a higher opinion of him. I like his bat more that Tate's, though Tate is still in the current overall Top 10 for me. To be honest, Keith Law is the only other "draft guy" I have seen with Davidson in the Top 10. That doesn't mean much, other than it's obvious that reasonable people can have differing views on rankings when you are talking about a lot of talent that is somewhat comparable (compared to last year's draft where there was a more distinct cut-off from the "elite" crop).
