    has Lance McCullers Jr. pretty much fallen off the face of the earth??? for ALONG TIME he was said to be the best prospect for the draft and now i rarely ever hear about him. and it sure looks like as of right now, the top 8 guys are going to be rounded out by (in not particular order) Appel, Buxton, Giolito, Marerro, Zunino, Gausman, Trey Williams, Beck as of right now

      Beck is not a top 8 guy

      • http://twitter.com/rinsana11 Ross

        yeah he is bud. im assuming you dont know the one big thing on scouting baseball talent…to not base a guy just off this seasons numbers/performance alone. uhhhh are you aware of cole’s numbers at UCLA in his last season there, yet he was still said to be the best overall prospect. and jonathan mayo on MLB.com has Beck rated exactly at #8 and i trust his insight way over someone like you since im a big fan of his work
