    I honestly don't know how anyone has hicks in the top 3 anymore, the Top 2 are unanimous (Sano and Rosario) with Arcia holding a firm grip on #3. After 3 It could go anywhere. also think Pat Dean is too high for such a bad season.

    Hicks still has all the tools and has made his way in 2012 to AA, one would think. He is still the best defensive OF, by far, and one cannot ignore his OBP. He also was great in the Arizona Fall League. The AFL is obviously a hitters league, but it is also a AA/AAA hitters league. He did very well there. Other than Sano, I am showing a bit of favoritism towards players who have actually made it to High-A (which is why I also am low on new draft picks who haven't played or who have barely played).

    Anyway, the issue with Hicks seems to be that he takes too many pitches. That is something that is easily corrected.

    Dean struggled at Fort Myers, but was still called up to New Britain late in the year. I would expect him to end this year at New Britain again, but after maintaining his excellent K/BB rate at Fort Myers for 1/2-2/3 of the season.

    Hicks' composite numbers from FTM and the AFL were .251/.363/.404 with 39 doubles, 10 triples, and 8 homers. On top of stellar defense.
