Daniel Bard (I liked him coming out of college, should be fun to see howhe develops)
That's pretty much about it. Everyone else I either think should be lower on the list or shouldn't be on the list to begin with.
I think Clay Buchholz is going to really surprise some people. I actually don't like the Bard ranking, throw a professional pitch or show me an off-speed pitch worth discussing.
