In another thread someone brought up the question of if you had 5 picks of the entire Minor Leagues, who would you take for the future of your baseball team. I thought it might be a fun little topic to start on its on and see who some of you guys would take, in order if you had 10 picks, 5 pitchers and 5 position players, who would they be and in what order?

10 players.

5 pitchers:

1. Homer Bailey (CIN)
2. Phillip Hughes (NYY)
3. Matt Garza (MIN)
4. Adam Miller (CLE)
5. Ubaldo Jimenez (COL)

5 Hitters.

1. Delmon Young (TB)
2. Evan Longoria (TB)
3. Brandon Wood (LAA)
4. Alex Gordon (KC)
5. Jay Bruce (CIN)

Whoops, I'm a moron. I didn't read your post correctly. Let me go back and do what I should have done from the beginning.

Positional players
1. Delmon Young - OF
2. Brandon Wood - SS/2B
3. Justin Upton - OF
4. Jay Bruce - OF
5. Cameron Maybin - OF

Pitchers
1. Homer Bailey
2. Philip Hughes
3. Matt Garza
4. Yovani Gollardo
5. Kyle Drabek

Now I know I took a big leap of faith with Drabek, but after seeing him pitch, he has absolutely disgusting stuff, he has the pedigree and I just like what he brings to the table. He hasnt been overly impressive like some other pitchers drafted this year, but thats ok. I like his upside.

I didn't go for the highest ceiling guys (ie. Upton, Young, Maybin), I chose players that have good ceilings and have proven themselves.

Arms:
1) Bailey
2) Hughes
3) Garza
4) Hirsh
5) Hochevar

Bats:
1) Wood
2) Gordon
3) Longoria
4) Bruce
5) Maybin

No Young b/c he might end up killing an ump one day.

No Butler b/c he might be a DH.

No Upton(s) b/c Justin isn't doing much and BJ has attitude probs and fielding issues. Though I might have a 'tude if I was still in the minors and I was him.

Bruce over Maybin...Cincy pride, baby.

Tabata got some votes, but I have a hard time believing he's that young.

Adenhart has injury questions.


Not that I wouldn't mind having those guys, just giving some color on my decisions.

Well BJ also wouldnt be available, since he is in Tampa Bay right now.
