He's got loads of potential at the plate, and I've seen/heard great things about his defense.

I might be crazy, but I'm also extremely high on Chris Young down in Kannapolis. He might have the highest ceiling of all these guys. But again, his age makes it hard to project his future potential.
Only really 3 months of real game action, too. A lot of guys on my high school team have played against Sweeney. They don't seem surprised he's this hyped.
