Next addition to the "Big 4": Anthony Fernandez.

I'd bet on Victor Sanchez first.

Three names to put under your hat to pull out one day in the near future:
I've seen all three pitch in the last few days, and all I have to say is "Wow"! Others have also stood out (Seon Gi-Kim hitting 95 on the radar gun, for instance) too, so more names will be added to the list over the course of the next few weeks.

I'd bet on -- obviously, if you've seen the handbook -- Pike first. But I have a feeling the club will add another college starter (probably not at No. 12) in the '13 draft that will have a shot, too.

1st. I know we operate under "take the best player available" but man I hope one of the top four bats falls into our laps. I'm hoping some pitchers pitch themselves into the top ten and one of the big sticks somehow slides to us. If we take a pitcher I will be fine with it, we will literally have the greatest collection of young pitching talent, arguably ever. I know that is a bold statement but wow we would have a lot of pitching.
2nd. Branden Mauer looks AMAZING. The guy is killing it and seems like a much more complete pitcher then Saunders, Beaven, Garland, Bonderman and even Ramirez and Iwakuma, so far this spring. He has been the best pitcher in camp in my opinion. Consistently touching mid 90s on his fastball and locating all three of his off speed pitches (change, curve, slider). At this point I think he can make the team as a starter. He has the look and feel of Pineda, who did the exact same thing. (overcame injury in the minors, put together a really good season in AA, winning the pitcher of the year and making the club the next year)

Mauer really looking good. I am betting on Garland to make the club. agree with above, we sure as hell have a lot of young pitching coming along, and by mid=-season, we are going to start seeing some of them in Seattle

Agreed on Pike Jason. I like Sanchez too Brendan, I'm just worried he's been spending too much time with his Body by Pablo Sandoval DVD.

I don't know who the team will pick with the 12th choice but by now I just trust them to come up with something of value.
I'm really struck by the depth the team has now and the offense they have put together. There are 10 guys with an OPS over 1.000, plus 2 over .900 and 3 over .800 and 3 to 5 of them won't make the big club out of spring training.
Having Saunders, Garland, Morales, Morse and Bay on one year deals will allow the team to promote most of those who are ready after this season, or alternatively move them at the deadline for more talent and make some space for promotions.

We all tend to forget about him, but I think Landazzuri may join the top pitching prospects soon.
