Surprised to see Cecchini so high. There are 3-4 guys on that list that should probably be ahead of him.

Yeah, I have my comments on this on my 8am post tommorrow.

I like Cecchini (not as much as Courtney Hawkins of JBJ) but this is the highest I've ever seen him ranked... they also have him as the 2016 second baseman.

Wouldn't it be nice that some every day player that was drafted in the pst two drafts turns out to be real?

Mack i saw alonso Harris at at st.lucie last yr and spoke to one of the coaches he told me because of his age and he finally change his approach to hitting. His using his speed more. The coach said he wouldn't be surprised if he gets called up in 2013. What have u heard about him?

Mack Ade said...

'Zo" has worked very hard to change his approach to the game, both through his ability and his mental approach.

He has totally flown under the radar and should start in AAA this year. Frankly, he would have to really have a super first half of a season to get a call up (or injury).
