    2018 MLB Draft

    Law chat today. Adam D.: Any early buzz about who the Giants might take at #2? I would like to see an upside play like Stewart, but it seems like the general strength of the college players near the top, combined with their refusal to play the rebuilding game makes them likely to go that route. Thoughts? Keith Law: The current buzz is that all or at least five of the top six picks will likely be college guys. I wouldn’t rule out Stewart – Dick Tidrow, whose opinion really matters in the Giants’ draft room, saw Stewart’s best outing – but I could see the picks going Mize (1), McClanahan, Bart, Bohm, Madrigal, India, or something similar to that. Bart could go anywhere from 2 to 9, Madrigal maybe 5-9, Bohm 3-6. Mize is atop just about everyone’s boards, even guys who don’t like the delivery.

    Anthony 2:27 Eric said yesterday he'd mock Swaggerty at 2 today. Assuming you've heard the same, is that a reflection on Swaggerty's reputation in the scouting community improving or just that the Giants like him more than most? Kiley McDaniel 2:28 I mean he was hitting poorly when I saw him and a little after that, while he's now hitting better, so I guess he's seen a little more positively, but teams are still largely having trouble clearly saying which of those three (and some toss Bart in that group) that they prefer, so it isn't a wild swing, more than we've heard SF prefers him over Bohm (and we already reported they won't take Madrigal).

    Neat. I'd be okay with that.

    You sure have a thing for player comps don't you?

    He's been so inconsistent velocity-wise. While I think the chance is close to nil that they select a prep arm at 4, I would much prefer Carter Stewart at this point. That curveball and it's spin rate is just hngh.

    2 errors behind him and a passed ball already in the first inning for Cease.

    Actually, in last week's Kiley/Longenhagen mock, they suggest that he might be their top choice. 4. Chicago White Sox – Travis Swaggerty, CF, South Alabama The White Sox are also on all three of the top college bats (Bohm, Madrigal, Swaggerty), and it sounds like they’ll take the one who gets to them here. We’re also not sure how Chicago stacks up those bats, but there’s some belief that they have Madrigal tops amongst the three. McClanahan has been mentioned as an option here, but he’s faded the last few weeks.

    On Moncada, I think I'd favor the move to 3B. Center field experiment sure would be interesting though. Starting to get more and more on board with Madrigal.

    Buehrleseque 1:03 Could Madrigal capably handle SS or is significantly better suited for SS? Eric A Longenhagen 1:03 He can handle it but I'd leave him at 2B

    Brad 1:04 If the White Sox draft Nick Madrigal at 1-4 this year, where does he play once he gets to the majors? Does he push Moncada off of 2B to 3B? Would he get the Scott Kingery treatment? Does he get reps in center? Eric A Longenhagen 1:04 Madrigal > Moncada at 2B and it's not close 1:05 I'd run Moncada around in CF

    Randy 12:51 Mize seems to be a bit underwhelming as a 1-1 compared to the likes of Cole, Strasburg, and Price. Have you heard anyone else mentioned as the #1 talent (not as the potential #1 pick)? Eric A Longenhagen 12:52 Agree. I think Madrigal is the best guy independent of injury.
