The best HS bat in Texas is headed to Tulane unless someone gives him second round money. The last best HS bat in Texas headed for Tulane turned out pretty well and the Red Sox have money, so this kid isn't going to Tulane - J.P. Ramirez, OF, Canyon HS (TX).

With the 109th pick - the Phillies select Texas Right Handed Fireballer Austin Dicharry from Klein Collins HS in Spring, Texas. We'll immediately go to work to pry him from his committment to the University of Texas.

And that concludes the Phils draft - quite a catch in my humble opinion.

24th overall - Jemile Weeks, 2B, Miami
34th overall - Destin Hood, SS, HS (AL)
51st overall - Adrian Nieto, C, HS (FL)
71th overall - Jordan Danks, CF, Texas
102nd overall - Chris Carpenter, RHP, Kent State
109th overall - Austin Dicharry, RHP, HS (TX)

My stepson lives in Brooklyn and is a Mets fan, he told me last night if the Mets got anything like Castro, Martin, Cooper and Lassiter to start the draft he'd dance jigs in Times Square. At least I made one Mets fan happy. Of course, I told him he had to have some fantasy to be happy about since his team under achieved so much. He told me to enjoy Volquez and Bruce because as a Reds fan I needed something besides titles to cheer about. Baseball. Bringing families together.;)

Puffy, I just noticed the I've got five picks from this draft and you've only got three. I declare victory!

Normally that might be the case. But Hosmer is like three large men and two small children, so that gives me 7 picks.

Unfortunately that only means he's got three split personalities that refuse to clean up when his other two split personalities mess their pants. I win on hygiene.

Good job, everyone. A big thank you to OBM for all his work.

For the record, though . . . I had sent my draft board to OBM a while ago. Maybe he had to delete it before my last pick. Anyway, my draft board was:

1. Brad Hand, LHS, Chaska HS (MN)
2. Tyler Chatwood, RHS, East Valley HS (CA)
3. Lonnie Chisenhall, 3B, Pitt CC (NC)

Cool I'll get the pick up in the next bit. Should we somehow make this thread or another thread selections only so there's no random chatter inbetween picks for people scrolling through? I'm sure many people will post reasoning behind their picks so it might be annoying for those to scroll through 3-4 posts of conversation inbetween each pick no?

Maybe a discussion thread and a pick thread like the All-Star draft you guys did? Just a thought.
