One name I haven't heard mentioned for a target to draft is Oklahoma State LHP Andrew Heaney. This is probably because he is a control artist and has average stuff with a smaller frame(sounds like a Twins pitcher already!) but I'm still torn. Dispite the obvious negatives he has put up eye popping stats(1.59 ERA, 120Ks to 16BBs in 101 IP, .189 BAA) in a pretty good conference none the less. I know we all want to fire baller but Greg Maddux didn't have outstanding stuff and neither did Mussina, heck Jamie Moyer has been pretty good with mediocre stuff for like 30 years and going. One pure stats he's blowing everyone away. So like I said I'm torn, when Maddux was drafted I'm sure there were the same concerns but now every team in the league would take him in a heart beat. I would say it's too early to draft a guy like that but he will certainly be gone by our supplimental pick and because baseball refuses to let is trade picks it's either at #2 or not have him. Should we take a fliar on him at #2 hoping he's Greg Maddux and being ok if he turns out to be Jamie Moyer? I'm not sure, What does everyone think?
