Best remaining available players per NFA, per a couple other sources, Baseball America and a one other place:

    * FL HS RHP A.J. Cole
    * CA HS OF Austin Wilson
    * CA HS RHP A.J. Vanegas
    * LA HS SS Garin Cecchini
    * Indy League LHP James Paxton
    * Virginia Tech RHP Jesse Hahn
    * FL HS RHP/SS Yordy Cabrera
    * CO HS RHP Kevin Gausman

I think I got rid of the guys that were drafted...

Austin Wilson would have been nice. Would have had to pay him a ton but he's special.

This pick looks about the same as Kobernus last year. It's good that we are stockpiling middle infielders but I would have liked to seen us go after some OFers or more pitching.

Wilson doesn't sound like he is going to sign... like you said, unless he gets some big money.

My heart was ripped out when Parker got picked. then Houston walked in a smashed it with a mallet... I wanted Wates. I know the guy, I love watching him and I think he has what it takes. Would have loved a fellow Hokie in D.C.

classic Rizzo draftee. Let's hope he pans out.

I'd like to see us target some higher ceiling guys with our next few picks though.

Following yesterday's first round, here are Kevin Goldstein of Baseball Prospectus' top 10 remaining players:

2010 Draft: Best Of What's Left
by Kevin Goldstein

Here's my ten best remaining talents in the draft, and why they are still on the board.

1. Stetson Allie, RHP, St. Edward HS (OH)

Just priced himself out of the market. If he's throwing bullets like he was the last six weeks of the high school season, he's a top three pick in 2013.

2. Brett Eibner, OF/RHP, Arkansas

Despite huge offensive numbers, including more than twice as many home runs as teammate Zach Cox, teams like him better as a pitcher, and he wants to keep hitting.

3. Austin Wilson, OF, Harvard Westlake HS (CA)

Too raw to spend huge money on him, another possible big name in three years if the tools blossom at Stanford.

4. Brandon Workman, RHP, Texas

In the end, too many teams saw him as a future reliever, as he's primarily as fastball/curve pitcher, and it's not the prettiest delivery in the world.

5. Yordy Cabrera, SS, Lakeland HS (FL)

The concept of paying seven figures to a high school player who turns 20 in October proved too much. He should be an early name tomorrow.

6. A.J. Cole, RHP, Oviedo HS (FL)

Once he slid past the 20s, signability became a big issue, as he's going to want first-round money no matter where he's drafted. Miami could benefit from this drop.

7. Sammy Solis, LHP, San Diego

When the trend went to high-ceiling high school arms, the low-upside, polished college type got pushed to the side. Like Cabrera, he won't be waiting long tomorrow.

8. Jedd Gyorko, INF, West Virginia

Another easy second-round projection, scouts being unable to confidently project a good defensive home hurt him on day one.

9. Ryne Stanek, RHP, Blue Valley HS (KS)

Too much, too soon. Scouts didn't trust it in the end, and his secondary pitches failed to impress late. Could end up going to Arkansas.

10. Jesse Hahn, RHP, Virginia Tech

Just the worst timing of any player in the draft, as he left his post-season start on Sunday after three innings with forearm tightness, and final evaluation of the injury is still up in the air.

Looks like he also played 3b with the Collegiate National Team while Colon was playing ss.

This draft is leaving a bad taste in my mouth so far. We had a chance this draft to spend big money all around and really stockpile huge talent. So far we have been going after signability guys other than Harper. We have a need for stud position prospects and instead of taking a big time OFer, we take a guy whose ceiling is a #4/#5 starter.

Sigh.

A.J. Cole

Signability could be an issue.

Not sure why anyone thought any different, didn't we do the same thing when we shelled out big $$$ for Stras last year. I knew the Lerners would go with the signability picks.

Signing Harper will involve BIG money...a ton of money.  From all reports, it will also take alot of $$$ to sign Cole.  You need a few Drew Storen's thrown in the mix.

AJ Cole freak yea! Please sign him some scouts are touting him as a potential ace. Wouldn't it be great to get two Top 20 talents in the same draft?

Isn't that the same spot they got Morris last year?

edit: It was.  A.J.'s drafted to start off the 4th round in back to back years.  What were the chances?
