I'm going Freitas here. Plays an important position and his bat has been great. Good plate patience and nice pop and hitting skills. Have heard no complaints defensively. He could take a big leap up the charts if he shows something next year at a higher level.

No brainer for me, I already think that Keyes dropped too far.  Ton of power, decent plate discipline (though does chase a bit), and a good amount of athleticism for his size.  He is a bit old for Hagerstown, but injuries and a rough year at Vermont slowed him down some.  The only downside is defense.  He has a good enough arm to stick in Right Field, but I don't know if his range is good enough.  He seems like a future 1B.

Having seen him twice now, I think that a lot of people are about to be surprised by how good this guy is going to be.

Perez, I know we're a deeper system, but he's got to place eventually

I can't believe Meyers, Rosenbaum and Freitas are still not on the list. All 3 have good numbers for their level. Our system is looking great.

Turnbull's ceiling gets my vote again. Paul Demny, J. Smoker are a couple other guys to add to the list.

Wow, Matt Skole beat Keyes and Meyers? Oh well, guess I will go with Keyes (defecting from Komatsu, who got my last 2 votes).
