As an Astros fan, the 2012 draft is something I'm looking forward to. The Astros have built a solid farm system, and adding another top prospect with the first pick could push them to another level. I just wanted to start a little discussion over who the MiLB community thought should go first.
My personal choice is Nick Williams. I'm an upside guy, and Williams has it all from a tools perspective. While a guy like Appel who could help at the big league level soon would be nice and I certainly wouldn't complain about them selecting him, I lean Williams
Who should the Houston Astros select with the #1 pick in the 2012 Draft?
Mark Appel (52 votes)
Lance McCullers, Jr. (12 votes)
Nick Williams (13 votes)
Lucas Giolito (17 votes)
Deven Marrero (18 votes)
