The White Sox need everything. The farm is dreadful. As far as starting pitching goes, they have Nestor Molina (who has been mediocre so far) and not much else.

Besides, they have some nice pitching prospects already, and look to add more in the midseason deals of Myers, Wandy Rodriguez and Carlos Lee.
I hope they take Buxton too, but it sounds like the owner wants a safer, quick to the majors pitcher. It really sounds like they will be taking Appel, who has great stuff but is very inconsistent and doesn't get the results that he should. Twins would love for Buxton to fall to them.

Karkovice will be representing the White Sox at the draft this year. Less than two weeks away. Whispers on who teams are interested in should be rampant soon.

Law's mock from a few days ago has Appel going first. He has Sox taking Shaffer (3B from Clemson), but also mentions our supposed ties to Smoral.

Mayo's 2nd mock:

Sox interested in Stratton, Heaney, & Wacha as I previously guessed. I'm more in favor of Heaney and Stratton than Wacha though.

If Keith Law and a #2 pencil had a home run hitting contest, who would win?

Could still go either way. Hearing both. @professorfog: #WhiteSox moved on to college pitching vs the prep players at this point? #mlbdraft

College pitching? Shocker.

Chris Sale magically fell to us. But after all, since Matt Ginter, Kris Honel, Royce Ring, Lance Broadway, Kyle McCulloch and Aaron Poreda were all such RESOUNDING Major League successes, why wouldn't they keep going with that strategy?

Kris Honel was a HS pitcher...

I stand corrected. The point remains, though.

When you look at draft history, the bust factor for high players is greater than college players. Drafting college pitchers is not a bad philosophy, but of course you have to draft the right ones. I would prefer we just take the best player available in the first round, position/age be damned.
