    This time a throw a vote for Domingo Tapia, He has the best and most dominant fastball in the Mets system imo.

    I voted Rosario. May be too high but I'm driving this kids bandwagon.

    My son's name is Gavin and he's hell on wheels. Lets see if its time for a #1 pick to start paying dividends.

    Cecchini has to be in the Top 10. I think people are holding too much weight to his performance in Kingsport this year.

    I think some are putting too much weight on the fat that he is a SS. IMO he is a guy that should b ranked anywhere from #8-#12.

    I voted Familia before and he lost, so I guess I'll vote for him again.

    BTW here are some of Tapia's numbers at Savannah.

    2.68 FIP
    8.39 K/9
    2.65 BB/9
    0.17 HR/9


    All those numbers are equal or better than Fulmer, obviously Fulmer had a better ERA mostly based on the fat that he was able to leave more runners stranded.

    While Fulmer is also a year and a half younger than Tapia, Domingo has the single best fastball in the system and hitters just can't lift. His command is very good, but the problem continues to be his secondaries, but he is a big strong guy that has the stamina to stay a starter.

    Yeah have to love Familia's projection if he develops his secondaries.

    Either way with his command and plus fastball he is still at worst potentially a very solid reliever even closer.

    I voted Tapia here based on 4 factors.

    His fastball may be the best in the organization.

    His age leaves time for more development.

    His frame suggests projectibility.

    He has already started to produce tremendous results.

    He's a SS that can actually play the position and projects to hit enough to hold an everyday job. That is valuable, and he's got room for growth physically.

    The only other two guys I would consider are Tapia and maybe Familia for this spot. Familia imo is surely a pen arm because of his lack of command and change-up.

    Tapia produced great numbers but there are concerns with his arm slot for developing a serviceable breaking ball which screams bullpen for him too. Unlike Familia, he has more many more innings to pitch to get this right.

    ...and there is a chance that he might not stick at SS, so what then?

    Is not like he is Ozzie Smith out there, scouts think he will stay there, but is not a given.

    ...another thing about Cecchini is what about if his hitting does not improved much? yeah he is young and can improved but these are not givens he has a long way to go and as of right now many are just over valuing the fact that he could stay at SS in the future. Baseball America ranked him #2 in the Mets top 10(before the Dickey trade). #2? that was too high for Cecchini even before that deal.

    He'll stick at SS. If JJ Hardy can stick there so can Cecchini. His baseball instincts will make his overall ability at SS play up.

    Scouts liked Cecchini's hitting ability coming into the draft, I thought you didn't hold much stock into what players do in their first taste of professional ball? Kingsport is an advanced league for an 18 year old anyway.
