I'd be more optimistic than not about Gordon. Hasn't been overwhelmed and is coming off one of the best NCAA seasons in recent memory: .411/.519/.804 with 28 HR (in the SEC!). For a shortstop that's pretty fantastic. 54/30 BB/K ratio. Yikes.
Fields was good in college, but never THAT good.
College stats are so meaningless with the metal bat.
I think Beckham's future will be at 2nd. At best he's a solid everyday 2nd. But not an all star.
