This is going to be a fun draft, especially with rumors swirling about Andrew Miller's contract demands (8 figures?!).
Wow, thanks for the tidbit, Outshined. I wonder if this comes true tomorrow....there had been a lot of talk that the Royals weren't going to come to an agreement with Andrew Miller, so Lincoln would be a great first pick for them. I wonder where that'd leave Miller? Colorado has pick 2 but they are apparently really enamored with Evan Longoria, as is Tampa Bay. So it's safe to say that they will be picks 2 and 3, but a matter of who gets who. I like Morrow a lot for the Reds' pick, and can see it play out to where we get him, but I think a key is what the Pirates do at 4....they seem to really like Greg Reynolds of Stanford and could go for him there. Then Hochevar, Stubbs and Kershaw as the next three picks would let the Reds have their pick from Morrow, Lincecum or Bard. We'll find out soon enough!
