how long for each selection?

We typically don't have a time limit but if someone is holding the draft up for a decent period of time then we usually move on.

redhawk61

will the get the BPA per the rankings of the players like what happens in a fantasy draft.

I'm not sure I follow.

I'm not sure I follow.

well in a fantasy draft they have the players rank accordingly 1-however many players there are. In that draft, if a player fails to make their selection they automatically get the top player left on those rankings. so say if we used http://www.redszone.com/forums/showthread.php?t=68311 these rankings and at say #5 that person's time passes and the first four picks went with the guys ranked 1-4 being picked, well they automatically get Crow since he is the top guy left. So all players get picked but the team might not get who would be ideal, such as at #5 with the Giants who need a bat,going by those first 4 picks would ideally pick Posey.

05-29-2008, 12:48 PM
Ah, I see what you mean now. Yeah, that's how we usually do it. But hopefully it doesn't come to that point. We always ask folks to PM a list of picks to myself or someone else in case they won't be around but it's better for everyone if they're here on time.

Ever really. As the Marlins GM, shouldn't you be trying to trade your draft pick for an elementary school? Now taunt me no more or I shall be forced to chant the year "2003" at you.

Meanwhile, what were the odds that we'd be waiting around for Krono to post something?

I told my brother, Jay Bruce that his pick was up, and he quickly resorted to "JP Ricciardi mode", by simply asking, who are the best college players available, while completely ignoring any kind of high school talent. After that, it came to which player's name he found the most amusing.

Toronto selects, Ike Davis, OF, Arizona State

He is still a raw pitching prospect, but he has two, possibly three, plus pitches and could be in the majors quickly as a reliever or a long-term project as a starter.

We're really excited about Jemile still being on the board, especially since we'd heard he could get picked in the top 10-15. His amazing athleticism is a huge key - we've got him rated as the top athlete available in this years draft. An excellent switch hitter, we're confident that he'll be a stellar up the middle performer for the Phils for years to come.

The Rockies will select Garrit Cole with the 25th overall pick.

Cole is widely considered the best righthander out of SoCal since Phil Hughes. He throws a four seam fastball that works from 93-96, but has the ability to dial it up to 98. He maintains his velocity and movement late into games - when he makes it that far as he has a tendency to run up pitch counts. This may necessitate a move to the pen down the line, where he might profile as an elite closer. His curve has bite, breaks late and hard. His changup is a work in progress, and he's been using it more as his season has wore on. Part of the appeal with Garrit is his projectability. He's tall and lanky with room to fill out. But he does have some issues, namely with his mechanics - although his maturity has also been called into question by some. He's going to be a work in progress, but the potential reward is huge. And the Rockies are elated to be able to grab his talent this late in round 1.

Sorry for the delay everybody....

The Dbax are very pleased to see that Brett Lawrie is still available. He's their pick.

from BA:

Scouts debate whether Lawrie is the best Canadian hitting prospect since Justin Morneau or Larry Walker, but he's definitely created buzz in a draft relatively short on high school bats, drawing some comparisons to Craig Biggio. If he had a more defined position, he would be a cinch first-round pick. Signed by Arizona State, Lawrie has too much present hitting ability to wind up in college. One scout compared him to Marlins slugger Dan Uggla for his strength, power and muscular, mature build, and several scouts have graded Lawrie's power as above-average if not 70 on the 20-80 scale. He's not just strong but also has a keen eye, offensive instincts, aggressiveness and quick wrists that drive the bat through the hitting zone. On a spring trip with his Canadian travel teams (Langley, B.C., Blaze and the Canadian junior national team), Lawrie went 21-for-30 against extended spring training and college teams, including 14 extra-base hits. He hit doubles off Kyle Davies and Luke Hochevar in a game against the Royals' extended spring team. Several scouts summed up his offensive approach by describing him as "fearless." He's also athletic with above-average speed (6.75 seconds in the 60). Defense is Lawrie's shortcoming; he plays infield and catcher and also has seen time in the outfield, where one scout described him as "disinterested." He's shown the tools to catch, as he's built for the position at 6 feet and 200 pounds, and he has an average arm at the least. However, his bat might be too advanced for him to take the time to learn such a valuable defensive position, and some scouts doubt that he'd have the temperament to handle it anyway.

The Braves select: ROSS SEATON, RHP, Second Baptist HS, Houston


During the fall, Seaton pitched at 88-89 mph, wasn't a coveted recruit by Texas colleges and projected as a fifth-round talent. But after throwing 90-94 mph all spring and touching 96, Seaton has leapfrogged several others to establish himself as the Lone Star State's best prep pitching prospect. He features a slider than can range from devastating to flat, and an effective changeup. While his secondary pitches are inconsistent, his control isn't, as he throws strikes with ease. His delivery is smooth and easily repeatable. Big and strong at 6-foot-4 and 215 pounds, he's also a quality athlete who will see action as a two-way player if he attends Tulane, following in the tradition of Micah Owings and 2005 Astros first-round pick Brian Bogusevic. As an outfielder, Seaton offers power, arm strength and average to plus speed. A lefthanded hitter, he also has shown the ability to make adjustments at the plate. Nevertheless, he'll focus on pitching if he turns pro. Though he's a good student, Seaton is expected to sign if he's drafted in the early rounds. The Astros have shown a lot of interest in the local product and could target him with their sandwich-round pick at No. 38.

At #43, the Dbax take fast risin' home boy Daniel Schlereth. Recent reports had him at 97-98mph.......

Daniel
Schlereth LHP L/L 6-0 210 Arizona SR 22 1 0 1.97 28 1 45.2 26 16 65

from BA:

The son of former NFL offensive lineman and current ESPN commentator Mark Schlereth, Daniel Schlereth was an eighth-round pick last year as a draft-eligible sophomore, having missed a year due to Tommy John surgery. Schlereth didn't sign and has come back improved as part of a devastating Arizona bullpen with three of the nation's best power arms. While teammate Ryan Perry figures to be drafted higher this year (and sophomore closer Jason Stoffel should go higher next year), Schlereth was making a case to go in the first two rounds by showing improved command and stuff from 2007. Schlereth finds the strike zone more consistently with his 90-94 mph fastball and at times has more velocity, sometimes sitting 94-96. His power breaking ball is a swing-and-miss pitch, and he's done a better job of throwing it for strikes. After a failed bid as a starter earlier in his career, Schlereth has shown the guts to challenge hitters with his stuff in a relief role and could be the rare lefthanded closer as a pro. The biggest question will be whether or not he can maintain his stuff while improving his control. He'll never have command with the effort he puts into his delivery, but he still doesn't throw as many quality strikes as he'll need to at higher levels. He's expected to be drafted in the first three rounds.

I think the Yankees will take a chance with a young shortstop here. Their lack of depth in the minor leagues as far as position players is astrounding.

Defensively, he'll make for a good second baseman as a pro and has a very mature makeup. His brother is the second baseman at ASU and he is committed to the same school. Torrez can flat-out hit the baseball. He uses excellent bat control and makes solid contact, usually up the middle and the other way. He's got a short and compact swing.

Royals Scouting Director: "We are thrilled to draft Riccio Torrez with the #49 pick. We feel he can develop and be part of the core of our up the middle for years to come. With his ability to hit the baseball to all parts of the field we feel he can one day let us get over our mistake of trading away Jeff Keppinger for next to nothing."

With the 51st pick in the 2008 Draft, the Phillies select Catcher Adrian Nieto, American Heritage HS, Plantation, Fla.

GM Pat Gillick
Adrian is an excellent HS bat that we are thrilled to add to the Phillies organization. Always a positive to add another HS All American in the 2nd round, and one that has tools aplenty. We're going to start him off catching - he certainly has the cannon arm and the athleticism to play catcher. He's got a monster power bat that will play anywhere, and great makeup to boot.

That makes three top notch up the middle athletes we've grabbed in our first three picks - very excited about how this draft class is shaping up.

When players are as close as Crow and Beckham are it's all about personal preference and, (OMG!!!!!!), need.

Not need in the majors right now. Not need projected 10 years from now. Just need throughout the system.

Then Beckham is a slam dunk pick. The Reds have pitching out the butt in the upper minors. They have no one who can hit on the infield.

Still, I don't care how close any two guys are... take the guy who is better.

^^^ Any major publication back you up on that? Baseball America isn't infallible, but they have Crow at 5 on the draft tracker and Beckham at 8. I'm cool with either one.


Not that BA is the be all end all, but its a personal preference of mine. Crow's arm is ready to explode. I would stay away from him if it were up to me. I have seen a few places with Beckham over Crow. I won't be upset or anything if we take Crow.... I will just pray his arm stays healthy. Right now, I don't see how that can happen though.

Hopefully JayBruceFan signs on before long. If we're going to finish this thing then it really needs to speed up. If we don't get into the third round tomorrow then we're going to have a tough time finishing it up.

Crow's mechanics are bad, but I'd take him in a heartbeat if he dropped to the Reds. Even if he manages only two healthy, successful years, that would be worth the $4mm signing bonus or whatever it would take to sign him.

RedlegJake is on the clock...

He was almost Rick Ankiel-like. Last year in '07 he played CF along with pitching. But he's not much of a hitter.

He had 111 K's and an ERA under 3.50, but the 5-6 record is pretty misleading on a poor offensive UCLA club.

The Tigers, IMO, will need pitching and pitching. There's something flawed with Verlander and Robertson. And I don't think Ilitch's is selling enough Pizzas to go FA shopping again.

I thought maybe Paramore would have been available. The Tigers need a quick C fix at somepoint. And even while he knows he's a fix, Brandon Inge isn't being considered.

Since RedlegJake stole, and I mean stole, Lenny Dykstra, Jr. from me (jerk), the Florida Marlins select Colby Shreve, SP, Southern Neveda Community College.

A seventh-round pick a year ago by the Atlanta Braves, he looks to improve his draft standing as one of the better JUCO pitchers in the country. He's added some velocity, up to 96 mph, and while he's still a work in progress, there's plenty to work with in terms of arm strength and size.

SCOUTING REPORT: A talented outfielder with plus speed and power potential, Grossman offers an intriguing package of tools. He has a track record of impressive performance and has been a household name among amateur baseball circles in Texas since his days as an underclassman.

Two high profile leverage arms for the Colorado Rockies.

Garrit Cole - RHP and Robbie Ross - LHP

I figured the Rockies need some arms since Morales, Morillo, Reynolds, Weathers, etc. are all in and/or close. Seems they're a bit more heavy on bats these days.

Whoah.

I don't want to suggest the guy is overweight, but when they told him he might be a sandwich pick, he began to salivate.

From the Orlando Sentinel
Jamie Mallard – 1B/DH
Tampa, Fla./Middleton
Listed as No. 351 in the Perfect Game Crosschecker top prospect national rankings…Named to The St. Petersburg Times and The Tampa Tribune’s Hillsborough County Second Teams…Hit .411 with seven homers as a junior while also collecting 26 RBI…Batted .438 with a pair of home runs as a sophomore…Helped Middleton advance to the 5A regional semifinals…Featured in a Sports Illustrated for Kids article that highlighted the top five power hitters in the country under 22 in 2002, when he was only 11 years old…Godson of former major leaguer Carl Everett.
Bryan Peters: “Jamie Mallard probably has the most power I have ever seen in terms of recruiting. He has the type of power that in BP both teams stop what they are doing and they watch how far he hits the ball. He hit a home run out of Tropicana Field in Tampa at 13 years old. And it shows up in the games too, he’s not just a five o’clock hitter. Hand Size, hand speed and bat speed equal big power with Jamie. And he moves well for his frame of 250 pounds. He has soft hands, is agile and has plenty of arm strength.”


Some comments:

Carl Everett had a godson? Who knew? Can the dept. of social services take away godchildren in addition to your real children?

If I ever balloon to 250, I want to be known as someone who "moves well for his frame of 250" - particularly by the ladies.

Apparently when he pitches, he throws sidearm-submarine style. As Texas Rangers' scouting director, I am a sucker for fat submariners. I wanna see that sub tip over.


Here's a breakdown of his swing, with video. Texas is happy to get the potential next Cecil Fielder at pick 89.

With the 91st selection in the 2008 MLB Draft, The St Louis Cardinals Select: Jordy Mercer SS Ok St.



GM John Mozeliak on the results of the 1st 3 rounds: "We are ecstatic with how the draft has fallen for us. We managed to get 3 outstanding arms who will move quickly through our system with a few tweaks and a young man who we believe still has some upside offensively and produced very well at the college level in Mercer."

On Mercer: "We will get him every opportunity to stay at SS, but we feel that ultimately worst case scenario his bat will play anywhere and 3B could very well end up being his major league position."

The Cardinals picks:
1st - Christian Freidrich LHSP Eastern Kentucky - Best Pitch: Filthy Curveball
2nd - Michael Palazzone RHSP HS (GA) - Best Pitch: Nasty Change-Up
3rd - Aaron Weatherford RHRP Mississippi - Best Pitch: Splitter (Best Pitch in draft?)

GM Pat Gillick on the 102nd pick
It's not every day you get a Cy Young winner in the 3rd round. I mean the guys got a proven track record at the major league level and the fact that he was available in the draft stunned us all. He may have some injury issues now but we're confident he'll work thru those and be ready for our playoff run come Sept.

I just realized that JayBruceFan sentme a list yesterday that I somehow looked over. He wanted Chris Dominguez at number 88 and I gave him Tyler Stovall. My mistake. Since Dominguez is still available I'm going to fix it and give him Dominguez.

Sorry for the delay, bad electrical storms killed my power.

The Colorado Rockies select SONNY GRAY, RHP, Smyrna (Tenn.) HS. A short pitcher, but not short on stuff, he has 2 pitches that are ready for MLB straight out of the draft. He has a mid 90's fastball and above average curve, both of which he commands in the zone. He has committment issues, but the Rockies felt compelled to take a shot at him - his makeup is a plus and he could move quickly and become a leader in the clubhouse.

That concludes the Rockies draft, pretty happy to get 3 arms of this calibur.

1. Garrit Cole - RHP
2. Robbie Ross - LHP
3. Sonny Gray - RHP

Merely coincidence the Rockies took 3 pitchers, we were going by best available player and then considering need 2nd. The 3rd pick had us considering college athlete TJ Steele - cool name too - and also Xavier Avery but deemed both guys too raw for their tastes, given their upside and took the possible starter/pen arm with plus make up instead.

Yeah it's interesting I felt the same way. It seems the value after the 1st round lies in the pitching dept and really by a longshot. I think the Reds end up with a pretty solid pick @ #84 and it is likely to be an arm, probably a HS starter or college reliever. I vote college reliever unless someone too good to pass on is still ava.

But man do I hate to see Milwaukee have so many picks in there early to pick up alot of arms.

at 104, the DBax go backstop --

from BA:

BRANDON MILLER, C, Woodward Academy, Tyrone, Ga.
Though he played his summer ball in the East Cobb program and attended some major national showcases last year, Miller entered the season a lesser-known name in Georgia. Not invited to the Aflac Classic, he ranked behind fellow high school catching prospect Taylor Hightower in the Peach State coming into the season. Following a strong senior season when he hit double-digit home runs, however, Miller has vaulted himself up draft boards and is considered one of the top high school catching prospects in the Southeast. A Georgia Tech signee, Miller has present strength as well as projectability. His ability at the plate is what separates him from other catchers and has scouts excited. For a catcher, he has average power and a chance to hit for a solid average. He is an aggressive hitter but makes consistent contact and hits to all fields. Miller has a strong arm, an athletic body and moves well behind the plate, and even though his receiving skills and footwork need refinement, scouts say he'll be able to make adjustments and improve. He's also an above-average runner for a catcher, regularly posting sub-7-second 60-yard times. Profiling as an offensive catcher with athleticism and plus makeup, Miller's upside at a premium position might send him even higher on draft day.
