    ''Boyd is a dark horse in the organization"

    Its silly to call a guy who signed a HUGE over slot signing bonus a "dark horse"

    Boyd is the definition of a million dollar bonus baby. There is nothing "out of no where" about him

    Exactly, he is the first 1st rounder that I have ever herd called a dark horse

    I don't see Sano sticking at third. I wonder if Niko Goodrum eventually ends up there. He certainly has the arm, and if he fills out, he could develop some decent power. Levi Michael seems like the type of player who will overachieve. If he stays healthy as a pro, he could be a rich-man's Nick Punto.
    Ouch...I have not liked the Levi Michael pick from day ONE! I would imagine you don't either since .....IF he overachieves and iF he stays healthy he COULD be a rich-man's Nick Punto.......OUCH!

    The "Dark Horse" statement is because of his positioning in the "Prospect Lists" . Not on top 10 for BA & Keith Law and La Velle; Seth and Twinkie Town have them at #20, Mayo & Goldstein have him at 12. You'd think a first rounder who has not thrown a pitch in pro ball, would get more love, wouldn't you ?

    If that would be the case, the Rays and Angels would have around 7 of those each....
