Re: 2007 Draft Wishlist
For the #15 pick, let me comb through the BA top 30 and set basic yes/no groupings (obviously yours may vary). Drop the "no" guys, subtract out the "yes" guys who get taken 1-14 and the remainder is the guys I'd be considering at #15.
David Price - Not an issue, he won't be there.
Matt Wieters - Could drop because of Boras.
Josh Vitters - Supposedly the Pirates love him at #4.
Rick Porcello - Can't imagine he'd be around at #15, but I'd take him if he was.
Mike Moustakas - See Porcello.
Ross Detwiler - I'm a sucker for tall lefty pitchers.
Jason Heyward - Bat, tools, sigh.
Jarrod Parker - Blasting up the charts thanks to possibly the best heater in the draft.
Beau Mills - Hits ball hard.
Matt Dominguez - Power + defense = tasty pick.
Julio Borbon - The next Johnny Damon? As a Reds fan, I naturally trust all players named Borbon.
Matt LaPorta - Will be the first hitter from this draft to have big league impact.
Casey Weathers - Could he be closing next season?
Michael Main - Fast arm, good change, excellent athlete.
Nick Schmidt - Good pitcher and his 6'7" frame may mean he'll be adding velo.
Kevin Ahrens - Polished HS hitter.
Michael Burgess - SS with crazy fast bat.
Andrew Brackman - Literally falling apart.
Daniel Moskos - Not enough command.
Matt Harvey - Throws across his body, not worth dealing with Boras.
Blake Beavan - Bad mechanics, particularly the arm recoil.
Madison Bumgarner - Inconsisent release.
Phillippe Aumont - Inconsistent release.
Josh Smoker - Teenager + splitter = arm surgery.
Joe Savery - Lacks a K pitch.
Devin Mesoraco - A catcher from the boonies in PA? No thanks.
Brett Cecil - Does nothing for me.
Jack McGeary - Check back after three years of college.
Corey Brown - Too inconsistent.
Baseball isn't a magic trick ... it doesn't get spoiled if you figure out how it works. - gonelong
I'm witchcrafting everybody.
