The final debate before the complete list appears.

Tim Anderson vs. J.P. Crawford | Daniel Norris vs. Jose Berrios |
Albert Almore vs. Stephen Piscotty | Austin Hedges vs. Blake Swihart vs. Jorge Alfaro |
Hunter Harvey vs. Kohl Stewart | Taijuan Walker vs. Lucas Giolito

The Rules
Rather than re-printing the BP Prospect Staff Midseason Top 50 debates—much of which involves discussion of multiple players at the same time—we thought it would be interesting to call out some of the more interesting pairings of players who have been in consideration for the #BPTop50 and allow an advocate for each to make his case as to why that player should be ranked ahead of the other.

Jason Parks and CJ Wittman debate the merits of two top shortstop prospects.

Rather than re-printing the BP Prospect Team Midseason Top 50 debates—much of which involves discussion of multiple players at the same time—we thought it would be interesting to call out some of the more interesting pairings among players in consideration for the #BPTop50 and allow an advocate for each to make his case for why that player should be ranked ahead of the other.

For fun, Nick picks his favorite selection in each of the first 10 rounds of the 2014 First Year Player Draft.

During my Draft Wrap Chat here at Baseball Prospectus, a reader asked me for my favorite draft picks by round. I thought that was a fun question, but wanted to answer in a manner that offered a little more explanation for my selections. That's what you see below---my favorite picks for the first ten rounds (with the first and second rounds, which were larger in scope, broken down into two sections each). Hope you have as much fun reading as I did putting it together!

Reviewing the first 17 picks in this year's draft.

The first 74 picks are in the books for the 2014 First Year Player Draft, with Brady Aiken (LHP, Cathedral Catholic (San Diego, CA)) the first high school lefty since Brien Taylor (East Carteret (Beaufort, NC)), some 23 years ago, to go first overall.
