I'm excited about the Fort Myer Miracle this year. How many true potential MLBers do you see on this squad? Legitimate chance to make it or whom you see making it?

Do you believe in the clutch gene? How about Adam Brett Walker hitting a HR on the first pitch he saw in his only Spring Training Call Up (MLB) this past Saturday. He then follows that up with a Double and 3 apparent successful fielding plays in RF. Announcer said the ball went over the simulated Monster out the Stadium at Jet Blue Park.
*Game tying HR in Appy League Championship 2012
*3 Grand Slams in 2013 and 9-12 with bases loaded
*HR and Double to spark comeback in first MLB action
HE JUST WINS

Byron Buxton CF
Jorge Polanco 2B
Max Kepler LF
Adam Walker RF
Dalton Hicks 1B

No less than 8 of those guys have the potential to play in the big leagues.

Oops! These questions are supposed to be answered on tonight's show... hey, maybe I'll change my mind by then... But, we'll still let Jeremy answer them and see what he thinks!

Sometimes Seth just gets too excited. I have my own opinions, which I will express tonight.

Did we ever figure out what the H is going on with Rosario?
Is this drug test failure then subsequent AWOL something we should be worried about long term? Or is it something as simple as miscommunication between either him and the team, or the team and the media?

Now he is serving his suspension. I think the team is willing to keep what is going on private and simply has not said much to the media. That's their prerogative. I don't see any miscommunication.
But maybe Seth and Jeremy have another viewpoint.

Buxton- OH YEA!!!!
Polanco and Hicks - I personally say NO, but I hope all prospects do well.
Kepler and Walker- Love Walkers power and Kepler looks smooth, I think one or both make it, but will not be star players.
Harrison-for some reason is my favorite minor leaguer , well other than Buxton lol
Goodrum- I don't see him making it to or past AA.
JD Williams, Lance Ray, Stuart Turner- Know to little about these guys to make a semi educated guess.
At Ft Myers, I really like Melotakis and Gilbert to make a splash at the big league level at some point. (not this yr)

If Hicks has a solid year - will it be because:
A) He was sent down to AAA last year in latter part of season?
B) He decided not to play Winter Ball and give his body and mind a rest?
C) He had his trial by fire at the beginning of 2013 and learned from it?
D) There are no other options
Leading to my next question - Is failure based on trial by fire always a bad thing if the prospect knows it is a more likely probability? Learn from it and grow from your mistakes. Especially if your team is already bad to begin with. (Not the Twins in 2014, but definitely in 2013)

Its hard for me to think of any non controversial reason, of the top of my head, that "go ahead and take a couple of days" would suddenly turn into "we'll see you in june".
The fact that he was allowed, under the rules, to participate in ST, but chose or was told not to, seems like a pretty big deal, and a major red flag.
