    I went with Cecchini as well. I did not like the pick when they made it, because I think a first round pick should have the potential to be a star, and safe picks come after round 1, but that being said, he is still projected to be an everyday shortstop. Even if he is not a star, a starting middle infielder is nothing to sneeze at.

    It's either Fulmer or Montero here.

    Voted Fulmer, but tough choice between him and Familia

    Mateo because of his stuff and the fact that he is closer to the major leagues than Fulmer but it was a hard decision.

    3 years ago many players on this list (Fulmer, Cecchini, Mateo, Montero, Tapia) would have been ranked 1-3. The fact that they will be in the 7-11 range speaks volume for how much our system has improved.

    I went with Fulmer. I was thrilled when they drafted him last year. I could have went with Montero, Mateo, or Cecchini but Fulmer's still very young and was very good in a full season league last year.

    Time to vote for the 3rd best arm from Oklahoma in 2011 draft. Whats not to like about him! ALL FRIGGIN BUSINESS!

    Niese, Wheeler, Harvey, Fulmer, and the guy from Toronto! The only argument in 2015 will be order of ability!

    I went with Fulmer here but I could have easily voted for Montero. I just think Fulmer has the potential to be a little better.

    Familia has the best stuff and is closer to MLB.

    Mateo is an RP. He was wild in the K-zone. Hitters in the NYP couldn't hit him, but he'll get hit at higher levels. He didn't maintain velocity deep into games and his last 5-6 games he struggled to reach 95 mph after touching 98 earlier.

    People obsess too much over being super athletic/"toolsy"...Jeter doesn't really have 1 tool that stands out and look at him.
    I can't force that video out of my mind of him hitting in game action where he looked awful. His swing was hideous and I don't think he had a solidly hit ball, foul or not, in the video. Every one of his swings looked like what Frank Thomas looked like when he got badly fooled on a pitch (where he didn't clear his hips), except Cecchini has 5-10 HR power and isn't arguably one of the top 10 pure hitters of all time.

    His swing doesn't look that bad at all. This doesn't qualify as hard contact?

    He looks unbalanced a lot. He's short to the ball but his bat doesn't really seem that quick but I agree his swing isn't as bad as he's making it out to be.
