Danny Dorn or Juan Silva?
I did not vote since Matt Maloney was not included.
2010 Mock Draft Selections (picking for Rays)
I just don't get all the love for Silva. He's a prolific strikeout artist right now and most players never fix that. I'd much rather have Dorn, Henry, and Sappelt over Silva.
AND...Fellhauer did as good as Silva at Dayton with 6 more homers and a ton less strikeouts. Low rookie pitchers are striking out Silva at a pretty fair rate. Somebody help me out here. I'm missing something!!!
Dorn, for the third time.

I'd rather listen to Kelch read the phone book than suffer through Thom Brennaman's attempt to make every instance on the field the most important event since the discovery of manned space flight. -westofyou
Fellhauer plays CF well, by most accounts, which should give him the better spot as well. He's also a couple leagues ahead of Silva, who's only done well in the GCL and has to go through both Billings and Dayton as well as he did in the GCL in one year apiece.
Of course, Silva's tools suggest he's going to develop more power as he fills out, so his OPS should go higher.
