I guarantee you 99% of people would be willing to trade Howard for Hanley.

I guess I'm in the 1%.

I almost may be too ;-D . Its very close. DevilDriver just cause u like someone over someone else doens't mean everyone else does. Have u relized Ramirez has a even worse lineup around him now, and that he won't see as nearly much good pitches.

I'd go with Wright, he seems like more of a 'guarantee' over Jose and Hanley.

Looks like the number 2 pick is overwhelmingly Wright based on responses in this thread so far:
Wright: 28
Hanley: 7
Holliday: 7
Jose: 3
Howard: 2
Santana: 2
Braun: 1

I will be in the minority and say that I would take Reyes at #2. I was between Hanley and Reyes, and have them both being very close in value. Hanley's shoulder and lineup uncertainty puts him behind Reyes for me.

1) Jose Reyes 2nd half drop last year has officially scared me away from him.
2) Without Cabrera there, I don't see Hanley matching last years numbers which will probably drop him out of the top 10 in production.
3) Holliday is awesome, no question, but considering all of the outfielders that are around the 15-25 range, I really don't want to be forced to take 2 outfielders with my first two picks.

That leaves Wright.

Wright seems to be right guy right now although not everyone agrees that he is the right choice. :-D

Anywho... He is the most balanced risk/reward /age combo out of anyone mentioned. I don't even consider position this early in the draft so you can argue position all you want but I won't buy it.

why is alot of people telling me wrigh won't live up too expectations and be a minor bust? They also say theres no way he gets the same stats this year as he did last year, which i would only want him 2nd knowing he'd have better stats then last year, cause he doesn't get that much steals, and not 1st round power. idk

My statement has absolutely nothing to do with my personal opinion of the players. Hanley is ahead of Howard in every single list of rankings, so from that you can establish that the vast majority of people value Hanley over Howard.
