I am diving head first into draft prep

I will be posting my top 100 sometime in the next two weeks. Still busy on the house, so I can't pin down a date.

I see Brett Wallace just got called up to AAA. He's not far from being the 3B for STL.

Lars Anderson hit 2 HR's off New Britain. I think that the Red Sox need to call him up after the All-star break. They need to get ready to cut ties with Big Papi, as sad as that is for Sox fans and sign Bay to an extension. Lars is struggling a little in Portland, but I think he will be fine. His BABIP is lower than it has been in the past and his GB% is up but I think this is due to small sample size. His BB rate is low also, clear signs he needs to relax and tonight might be a break from this.

One of my personal favorites, Cedric Hunter, OF, SD, seems to be heating up hitting .317 this month after hitting .195 in April. I'm glad to see him getting straightened out in AA and I hope he starts to get noticed by the big name prospect raters.

Sorry for not posting more recently, been really busy with house remodeling but I'm anxious to post about a few guys I like.
Kyle Drabek is tearing it up this season in Clearwater. He has 46 K's and 9 BB's in 35.2 IP with a 2.27 ERA and has yet to allow a HR. The stats tell me two things. The Phils were right in choosing to have him pitch and his arm is healed from TJ surgery.Lance Lynn was drafted 39th overall last year by the Cards. He did very well in 2 stops last season and is continuing it this year. He had a 17/3 K/BB ratio this season in HiA and was promoted to AA for his first start May 4 against Tulsa. He struck out 6 in 5 IP. At 6'5, 250 LBS, he's a big dude who could develop into a solid #3 innings eater in the ilk of Jason Jennings, with a few more K's, as early as next season.Matt Moore is another Rays minor leaguer who will be moving up rankings lists this season. He has K'd 38 in 25.2 IP in LoA this season. His BB's are high, but it is mos…
