Washington Nationals: 2010 Draft Watch...Keith Law's Top Prospects.

•'s Keith Law offered his, "Preliminary Top 50 2010 draft prospects", this afternoon, and three of the four pitchers I've been looking at as possibilities should the Washington Nationals decide against drafting 17-year-old phenom Bryce Harper no.1 overall, are the top three pitchers available in the upcoming (in June) MLB 2010 First-Year Player Draft according to Mr. Law, with Ole Miss left-hander Drew Pomeranz so far down on this particular list that it would be hard to consider him a possibility as a no.1 overall selection, but the rest of the pitchers from the top of every scout's list: Anthony Ranaudo (RHP, LSU), Deck McGuire (RHP, Georgia Tech) and The Woodlands High School right-hander Jameson Taillon join College of Southern Nevada catcher Bryce Harper as the top pitching and position prospects who are eligible for this year's draft...

In an article accompanying the list entitled, "Bryce Harper starts on top",'s Keith Law narrows DC GM Mike Rizzo and the Nationals' options down to three players, noting that in the history of the Draft, no prep school pitcher has ever been taken first overall, so with Jameson Taillon a tradition-breaking longshot, it's Harper, McGuire and Ranaudo at the top of the list the Nationals should be considering...hmm....where have I seen that list of players before?

(ed. note - "I'll have updates on Ranaudo and McGuire's 2010 debuts later tonight...")
