We love to debate where the big names at the top of the draft board should stack up. After all, everybody knows about the on-field exploits of names like Trout, Braun and CarGo. But, as you drift through the pack, things get interesting, contentious and less certain. The term “Sleeper” (“Ninjas” in my world here on SwollenDome.com and on our FOX Sports Radio ranting sessions) comes into play, but we’re also seeking value on aging stars or players on the comeback trail.

The back-end of the Outfield board gets jumbled and switched around a bunch leading toward opening day. My gut says that youth will be served in 2013. As such, a number of new names make my early list.

Get excited. Get loud. Get on my grid.
