Intriguing question.

At this point I would break it down as:

C - Hankins
1B - Rogowski
2B - Gray
SS - Gonzalez
3B - Schnurstein
OF - Anderson
OF - Sweeney
OF - Young

SP - Diaz
SP - Munoz
SP - McCarthy
SP - Haigwood
SP - Rodriguez

There are a lot of close races in there, as Nanita could be the top SS and Fields could be the best 3B. Honel and Wing of course would be in there if they weren't injured. One thing for sure, we're very weak at catcher and second base.

C - Donny Lucy

2B - Antoin Gray

All the others are good suggestions. Has Michael Spidale fallen off a bit?

He's still playing reasonably well, but he's just no where in the vicinity of guys like Anderson, Young, or Sweeney in terms of talent. The improving play of Brice will move him further down the list as well...

Post A keystone question

I've heard the school of thought that you don't worry about second base because as long as you're developing guys who can play shortstop, most of them can slide over to second. Any thoughts?

No Gio Gonzalez?

Is that just because he is so young or has only proved his stuff against low level prospects so far?

For sure. It's pretty hard to bump a guy pitching at rookie ball ahead of guys in A/AA/AAA. Stats in rookie ball are IMO almost impossible to project. The ballparks are puny and not well kept, and there are a lot of scrubs playing everyday. I prefer to look at a guy's pure talent when they are in Bristol or Great Falls.

He's definitely a prospect, but it is early. I think there are some real decent arms in this years draft crop, but it will take a bit more time to see who shakes out. Gio is one to keep on the radar for sure though.

I've said this many times already but Gio has a chance to be real special if he can stay healthy.

POS - 1st team - 2nd team

C - Lucy - Hankins?!?
1B - Rogowski - Bounds
2B - Gray - Nelson?!?
SS - Gonzalez - Valido
3B - Fields - Schnurstein
OF - Anderson - Spidale
OF - Sweeney - Brice
OF - Young - Nanita

SP - Diaz - Whisler
SP - McCarthy - Honel?
SP - Gonzalez - Wing?

RP - Bajenaru - Fields
RP - Munoz - Smith

After the latest draft and recent trades, the organization is pretty solid at CF and at the corners, but there's not much production at C or MIF. As always, the organization is the cradle of RP, while nursing some major injuries at SP.
