Is Brock Bond a prospect?

11

Bond just came off of a 5 for 5 night and is hitting .323 overall in Connecticut (which is no small feet) while playing 2nd base nearly everyday. He has virtually no power but his SO/BB ratio seems very good leading to a .323/.496/.394 line. Could he be the player the Giants hoped they drafted when they drafted Burriss minus the speed? Is there anyway he can play shortstop and is he a top 30 prospect? If so where in the top 30?

Chris (Harrisonburg, VA): A lot of Giants sites seem to be freaking out (prematurely in my opinion) over Buster Posey's amount of PB's in the Hawaiian League. Is there any debate as to whether or not he'll be able to stay behind the plate? Most pre-draft reports liked him a lot behind the dish, even if he was new to the catching digs. Kevin Goldstein: Plus defender with the potential to be great. Calm down, Giants fans.
