    Nice story, thanks for pointing out some of the many positives. Don't forget about Buxton returning to Action and Sano's positive prognosis as positive headlines. Those are two of the most important...

    Aiken, Gordon, Jackson, Nola, Rodon, Newcomb, Kolek for me.

    Rodon seems to have been abused a bit with his college workload. I have nightmares of him being the pick, signing late, being used very...

    And if I had 20 minutes to do the research I could name probably at least a dozen or two high school and college pitchers that were drafted in the top 5 and flopped. Not really sure what your point...

    Think about it though...if the strength of the draft is pitching and position players are more scarce why wouldn't you snap up a guy like Anderson if he's there for you at 46? The pitching in this...

    Except those don't exactly grow on trees either and from all indications most of the top 2014-2015 int'l talent already have prearranged verbal agreements in place. Out of BA's projected top 10 bonus...

    Agree to disagree, in my opinion a guy with a ceiling of a top of the order hitter at the most difficult/valuable defensive position on the diamond is every bit as solid of a pick as a guy with the...

    Gordon seems like a guy with a decent ceiling thanks to his athleticism, bloodlines, makeup and present skills. Conversely he seems like a guy with a pretty decent floor for a high schooler for all...

    I don't see anyone in that list that I'd be upset with. A pitcher would be great since you can never have enough but to me when you have Thorpe and Gonsalves among others not even able to crack a...

    This may be naive, but it doesn't seem to me that there would be quite as much point in smoke screening in the MLB draft as opposed to say the NBA or NFL drafts where trades are allowed. Seems to me...

    No way the Cards would do that deal. They're competing for a WS Championship, not looking to bolster an already stacked farm system. They're pushing hard for a 1st division SS, Shelby Miller will go...

    I'd be thrilled to see the Twins take a chance on Hughes over yet another ground ball specialist. As a fan I just can't stomach another year of watching that garbage. He's demonstrated the ability to...

    I noticed the same, will be curious to see how the GCL roster shakes out. At first glance it appears that there's quite a drop off in terms of position talent in the rookie leagues. Seems like a...

    #1 is either Sano or Buxton (Sano for me) in tier 1. Tier 2 for me is Arcia, Gibson, Hicks and Meyer in some order.

    My only fear is that he's cheap, has the track record you mentioned, and is also being pursued by the Reds and Dodgers who haven't been afraid to overpay under new ownership. I think he'd be a nice...

    For whatever reason, neither of those two are being mentioned with the Twins. Schumaker could be a nice bridge to Hicks and Daniel Santana and then serve as a useful utility player or trade chip...
