    Billy Hamilton. Huge upside and already a plus defender at shortstop goes a long way for me.

    I chose Hamilton but strongly considered Neftali Soto. I love Hamilton's glove along with the potential in his bat. He's got a chance to be a star if he reaches his potential. I'll probably go with Soto next with Maloney and Klinker on the radar too. I'll also give Juan Silva some strong consideration in the next two spots, too.

    I'll take Soto over Hamilton because I have trouble voting for a position player until he shows some hitting ability. Soto has shown it. Hamilton, not yet.

    Given his athleticism and potential on defense, Hamilton will skyrocket on my chart once he shows some hitting ability. Until then, he's not in my top ten.

    More upside than Duran?

    Probably similar upside, but Hamilton is a shortstop while Duran is a rightfielder.

    They're both very raw at their positions. They could easily be moved to different positions.

    Though it's an exercise in futility, I shall continue to vote Juan Silva until he's placed (ha ha). I love Silva's upside better than anyone left on the board. That's my vote until he gets the majority.

    Curious as to what makes Silva's upside better than that of Hamilton?

    I think they both have a chance to be plus defenders. Both seem to have a good arm and athleticism. Where I like Silva's upside is that I think he has (from reports) a better, compact swing and I feel like he will have a better bat than Hamilton. I liked the Hamilton pick, but I've been in love with the Silva pick since it was made.

    Don't get me wrong, I love Silva... but the upside isn't quite the same. Silva likely profiles as a corner outfielder while Hamilton looks to be a shortstop. I am with you on Silva having the potentially better bat. Love his swing plane and well, the numbers speak for themselves so far (although he is going to need to cut the K rate). But Hamilton is the best overall athlete in the system and profiles to play shortstop at a high level. Its tough to have a corner outfielder top that upside.

    That's saying something with a guy like Yorman Rodriguez in the system.

    It seems that relative to position, Hamilton might have better value in that sense. And while I should definitely be taking position into account, I think I'm taking more of a generic approach to the comparison.

    I noticed that Baseball America's draft report also said Silva would eventually move to a corner. Yet, he played CF with 3 assists in 64 chances and an impressive 7 triples in 143 AB's, yet only 1 HR. He seems to have the speed and arm to play center. Is this a case of playing him at the more skilled position until he shows he can't stick there? The Reds have been known to do that with SS candidates.

    I'm still on Soto, but Silva's next. Don't give up.
