2012 MLB draft talk

Recommended Posts

I will be shocked if the Twins don't pick Mitch Brown right here, or at 42.

Would Lance McCullers fall? Given we went upside, I wouldn't be opposed to taking him now. Some questions of whether he can start but he has legit stuff and at worse projects as an above average closer. I assume he'll be long gone though. Someone with multiple picks will take a chance on him.

 

McCullers might not be signable at that point without some creative allotment. Like you suggest, a team with multiple picks and more money to throw around seems the most likely.

Haha, no infatuation, just a remark about a guy that we were connected with that may drop out of the first round.

 

I don't mean you as much as the folks that rated him so highly in the first place.

I'd be interested in him, but I suppose there's the signability problem. Do we still receive the pick the next year if we don't sign a player?

I'd be all for Smoral but no way does he fall to the Sox. This is going to go quick (which I like).

If he does it'll be bookended with a couple "ya know's "

McCullers + Hawkins would make for a hell of a talented 1-2 draft punch

I like Robertson's swing and SS prescence. Reminds me a little of Tulo.

I don't think McCullers gets past St. Louis (or Boston or Texas). One of those teams will draft him.

Wonder if they would go with Piscotty? Stanford angle.

Maybe Smoral will just drop to 48

 

That's what they may be hoping...

Piscotty is a solid pick, however, don't think the Sox would take him or some better pitching prospects (which right now, it looks like such will be on the board).

Someone tell me what to like about Smoral? Sounds like mid-back rotation at best

Big, strong lefty. I'd love it.
