This is going to be a fun draft, especially with rumors swirling about Andrew Miller's contract demands (8 figures?!).
Jonathan Mayo came out at 4am Eastern today projecting that the Royals will take Hochevar:
If Miller drops to the Reds, the Reds should NOT be thrown off if Miller's camp is threatening not to sign. He wants to pitch. I think the guy regrets going to college at all.
Plus if I'm wrong, this is such a weak class this year, we'd likely get a supplemental pick next year, who's nearly as good as what's at #8 this year.
How, then, are those people of the future—who are taking steroids every day—going to look back on baseball players who used steroids? They're going to look back on them as pioneers. They're going to look back at it and say "So what?" - Bill James, Cooperstown and the 'Roids
