Default *official* Mlb Draft Thread

So, what is your guys' thoughts?

ESPN has us taking Nick Noonan, SS, Parker HS in San Diego

First off, knowing nothing about him baseball wise - I hope we get him b/c the Noonan/Caddyshack relationship is almost too good to pass up.

Here is what Keith Law says about him -

Quote:
The White Sox are looking to emphasize up-the-middle players and arms. Alderson is a top choice, but he doesn't seem likely to get here.
Alderson meaning Tim Alderson :

Quote:
Texas would love to get Beavan here, and they might go with another high school arm instead, such as Alderson. I've heard Chris Withrow linked to them, but that's probably for the sandwich round.
Who is projected to go 17th to the Braves.

My theory is go with college pitchers - enough of this HS stuff. Take the HS arms later on maybe - but in the early rounds if you are going pitching - Go the college/JC route. Why? At least they have proven (hopefully) that they a) Have suceeded at a higher level b) Stayed healthy after pitching in high school

There are just too many Kris Honel's out there - Try to find the Tim Lincecum from University of Washington or the Buehrle from JC -

Just my two cents.

RHP Casey Weathers, Vanderbilt: Sox can't pass on fastball-slider combo that could play in big-league bullpen pronto.

I actually hope they take the HS kid Michael Main, I think he's gonna be real good. Then at pick 89, I like a college pitcher out of Stetson University named Corey Kluber. As long as we don't draft LaPorta out of Florida, I should be able to keep it together. One of my favorite days of the year.

I actually like the draft, but I could do without the projections since there's no way they'll turn out like anyone has them. Plus I think 99.999% of fans really have no idea who any of these guys are, so watching the draft will be like watching paint dry to the masses. I guess that's why it's airing on a Thursday afternoon. As long as Berman and Kiper stay away, maybe I'll watch a little and see how it goes.

With ESPN involved, this is looking to be even longer than normal.

Same screen format as the NFL and NBA, can't go wrong with it.

Just curious because you don't hear about it often... But how often do you hear of draft picks included in trades in MLB? Not nearly as often as in other sports... Would it be more prevelant or less if it was held nearer the trading deadline?

Can't trade any draft picks.

You also cannot trade any of these guys getting drafted today until the draft is completed in 2008.

This draft would be more interesting to watch 10 years from now. Seriously.

Why? I would think that might be another thing that might generate interest in the draft wouldn't you agree?

Teams are not allowed to trade draft picks.

Of the mocks in the thread I started yesterday, I belive 5 have us taking Julio Borbon.



WOW!!! LaPorta gone at 7. He was looking like a late first rounder on almost every board.

This crowd is funny BTW. Fromt the terrible 5-4-3-2-1 countdowns, to around 3 people doing a "lets go Brewers" chant. I wonder if Selig dug up some hardcore Brewcrew fans to come along for support?
