Default 2015 draft

How do we know if we get 7-8-9? How are the tiebreakers determined?

Not 100% sure what the mechanism for breaking ties is, but we get pick #8

Interestingly enough, one of the lower Top 10 prospects for this upcoming draft is a Florida high school kid, CF Daz Cameron, whose father is... you guessed it, Mike. Considering Mike's ill feelings towards the Sox, an early storyline to pay attention to.

I'd guess Daz doesn't last till #8. But I'd love it if he did!

Brady Aiken is the name I really am watching. Teams might get gun shy based on his medicals, but if he comes out healthy and dominant again, he likely does not make it to 8.

At 8, if we somehow landed Aiken, could you imagine Sale-Rodon-Aiken-Quintana?

No way, too many red flags. Wait 3-4 years to get him through the minors just to see if he has a bum arm? Plus his agent is a real scuzz, trying to become the new Boras. He's also pitching in Juco, so those numbers won't be especially reliable.

Besides some dumb team will probably take him before the Sox pick.

Hopefully we take one of the shortstops (Rodgers or Bregman) or whatever college pitcher has a solid year to move into the top 10.

It's a top 10 pick.

Aiken's health isn't as big a question mark as what his agent may do.

Casey Close is openly trying to be a new Boras with amateur talent, and his tactics last year hurt both his players. Boras himself said that if he were the rep, he would have found a way to get something done.

I very much doubt Aiken or Nix get in bonuses what they could have last year, and they gave up a year of minor league time to do so. Marshall was going to LSU anyway, so his bonus ceiling isn't as affected.

If Close pulls another hardline stance on going well over slot for Aiken, I expect him to drop lower into the first round. Plus the Sox have had very little patience in the past for such games.

I don't know, by all accounts, the Astros deal was done until they saw he had a smaller than usual UCL. They then freaked the hell out and offered half the original offer.

Daz has been at the top of the 2015 rankings for as long as they have existed. He is the Nick Gordon of this draft and will probably be a top 5 pick.

I think scouts have cooled on him since he didn't dominate the Summer Showcases, but he has the tools to be taken in the Top 5.

His stock dropped a little last season as he did not mature and improve on some things the scouts were counting on. He is now predicted to go in the later side of the top 10 picks. I think the Sox are primed to be on the clock to pick him but we will see!

I hope they do!

No thanks. I'm done with the toolsy, athletic picks from the Sox. Would love a plus college bat (ie the Schwarber pick) or a top end pitcher with a clean history.

The guy I am VERY interested to see if he falls is Dansby Swanson. He is going to go somewhere between 4-9, assuming no injury/drop off. I think he is the next Dustin Pedroia, and a middle IF that could include some combo of him, Anderson, Micah Johnson could be VERY good.

He also is far enough a long that he could basically step right in when we let Ramirez go.

Money soothes all hurt feelings. Especially top 10 pick money.

Interestingly the MLB draft prospects list has Daz Cameron listed #8... right where the White Sox pick.

http://m.mlb.com/prospects/2015

Doesn't mean a thing of course... but it is an interesting coincidence.

Their rankings are pitcher heavy at the top and that's ok by me. Given the White Sox track record I'm just as happy if they stick with picking pitchers and trading for position prospects. The Sox track record with pitchers is faaaaaar better than their track record with position players.

Generally my feelings as well but overall my philosophy with 1st round MLB draft picks in general is to just forget everything else and go for BPA. Everything else sorts itself out from there, IMO.
