Baseball America just came out with their top ten list. Two notable differences between them and the other pundits. They pop Devaris Strange-Gordon into the seven spot which is quite remarkable for a 4th round pick. Maybe even more amazing was our number eleven pick Nathan Eovaldi taking the ten spot. You don't usually see players drafted the previous summer dominating the top 10 like this. A one/two pick is common but a 4th and 11th is very uncommon since neither were signability picks. Either they are steals in the draft or the previous drafts have so weakened our system that it was easy to sneak into the top ten. I prefer to think they were steals.
Quick breakdown by draft:
2008 - Ethan Martin, Josh Lindblom, Devaris Strange-Gordon, Nathan Eovaldi
2007 - Lambo, WIthrow
2006 - Nobody
2005 - DeJesus, Bell
2004 - Elbert
2002 - McDonald
