There seems to be a lack of a poll...

It takes a while to write out 10-11 names.

I voted Karns.  Always had the stuff and the results matched the stuff now that he was able to stay healthy.

The names are really starting to thin out already. Chose Karns over Skole, though if Skole can play decent D at first I think he has a shot.

Side note for #7, if Mooneyham is making the list then Tony Renda can too. Not that I'll probably put either in my top 10...

I'm still voting Skole before I get to Solis.  He has performed well at every level and Newman and others national guys who have seen him have turned favorable on him.  No one is saying star, but I'm not sure there are any star potential guys that are left.

Here's Newman's write up:
Quote
Over the past couple of years, I’ve had the chance to see Skole a handful of times between Georgia Tech and Hagerstown. Early in 2012, I could not help but notice how Skole’s physique had transformed into a true pro body. In game action, he slugged a long home run to centerfield, walked and booted a routine ground ball — a seemingly typical day based on his .291/.426/.559 triple slash line and my familiarity with his defense. As a 5th round pick, the Nationals have a steal in Skole, but don’t mistake his lofty numbers at an advanced age for true impact talent.



All star at every level (short season, low A, high A) and performing well in the AFL.

Why does Destin Hood keep getting votes?  His numbers don't look that great - http://www.baseball-reference.com/minors/player.cgi?id=hood--001des

Solis had the injury thing working against him before he got drafted.  Seems like nearly every pitcher in the organization has injury problems and/or has had TJ surgery.

I went with skole, everyone on the list now has question marks, skole has at least performed at every level. He's old for some levels (he seems ok at the AFL though), but he has no control where he plays

He's young, raw and played much of last year hurt.

Still a bright future with Hood.
