MLB Draft

Since every other draft gets a thread on here, I think the MLB draft should too.

How did your team do?

I like the Orioles' first-round pick, Wade Townsend out of Rice. He was the third starting pitcher taken from there in the first eight picks. Supposedly he has a Roger Clemens-like body, work ethic, and mentality, which is encouraging.

Also, I'd like to here what people think about Jerod Weaver and Stephen Drew falling out of the top 10 when both were considered good enough to be the #1 pick.

I like the pick too, they say he's intense on the mound. We picked up quite a few pitchers in the draft, God knows we can use them!

The main reason Drew and Weaver dropped out of the top ten is their agent Scott Boras. Teams were scared of the prospect of having to pay these guys a ton of money. In fact, Boras feels Weaver could play almost immediately for the Angels, thus he will try to get the Angels to give Weaver a major league contract. Most draftee get big signing bonuses, but relatively small salaries. Boras will try to get both for Weaver. On the bright side, Artie Moreno is a big spender, and Jared Weaver is happy to be drafted by a local team because he is from Simi Valley (residence of Mr. Halx as well )

I can't really get excited about a bunch of college players who may not make it to the bigs or high schoolers who may or may not sign a contract preferring instead to go to college. The MLB draft is the worst.

the #5 pick, mark rogers, i know - he's from here...

he has a great opportunity to go to miami on a full scholarship...

the rumor mill around town is that he'll sign with the brewers and go directly into the system...

there's two schools of thought here...

does the 18 year old kid - who btw can throw in the mid 90's - take the money and hope he makes it to the show...

or...

go to miami - which has a fantastic program - and get some experiance at the same level he'd get in the "b" leagues and hope he doesn't blow his arm out winding up with nothing...
