We’re still taking your picks and we will have our’s on here for you with The Top Nine HS Baseball players from Guilford County at 9 on June 9.

Until then we will still take your choices, just send those in as this reader did to durhamandy@live.com and we will keep on posting these without the comments so we can maintain a level of civility and we will also be able to keep the Greensborosports.com Nation together as one unit as we go for win number 300 in San Francisco.

Just a play on words Randy Johnson and here is today’s entry and very well done, I might add:

GSOSP.com reader says:A lot of good players in this county. I need 10 spots and can’t limit to one/team because the quality is not that well dispersed; wasn’t able to see Grimsley or Page play. After each selection, my reasons why…

Wil Myers – Skillwise a freak; will go as far as his work ethic will take him; good chance to make a lot of $$ soon

Nick McBride – Been a grown man for about 5 years; good size, live arm, poise, commands all his pitches

Kyle Brandenburg – Maybe the most consistent player in the county, seldom has a bad game on O or D

Macon Smith – Maybe the most dangerous hitter; ask opponents who walked/hit him close to 40 times; leader

Desean Anderson – Very good bat and defense; plus speed; Tanner has his CF for 3 years

Robbie McIntosh – Nobody had a better all-around season at the plate, solid in all phases; injury limited him pitching

Alex Swim –Sound receiver, real good contact hitter with gap power, leader

Cal Sutphin – Solid SS, strong arm, consistent at the plate; should have a good career at Liberty

Ray Crawford – Can rake, very good power, hands are his strength (quick and strong)

Brock Hudgens – Might be most underrated pitcher/player around; gun readings are climbing, smart and improving

Others worth noting: Ethan Ogburn, Casey Jones, Joe Turkson, Steven Mekita, Ben Fultz, George Carter, Josh Tobias, Nin Marerro, Will Kellam, Gabe Dimock, Trey Gilmore; Tevin Neal

POY:Myers easily on what he and his team accomplished

COY:Chris Causey – Won Triad 3-A handily and advanced to 3rd round of State’s with a team of juniors and sophs (over other teams with much more hyped individual talents); did it with two pitchers, no depth at positions and little offensive production from bottom third of the order; #1 pitcher is a competitor but can’t afford to throw his fastball for a strike, survives and battles on curveball and change, whole team knew and played their role and put the team ahead of their own interests.

GSOSP.com says:Well done on the selections………
