John Sickels' Favorite HS pitchers

John Sickels has a good post recapping his favorite high school pitchers of 2010, and two in Eddie's Farm are on the list:

Mike Foltynewicz:
I usually root for the cold-weather high school guys, especially if they are from the Midwest, and Folty is no exception. For some reason I tend to like high school pitchers from Illinois, first Michael Bowden, then Jake Odorizzi, than Tanner Bushue, and now Folty.

Vincent Velasquez:
Did well in his pro debut, 3.07 ERA with 25/5 K/BB in 29 innings in the Appy League. Another good athlete with projectability, has some health problems in his past with a stress fracture in the elbow, but I do find him intriguing.
