As far as percieved talent coming into the draft, like you say there isnt anyone in this draft that is comparable, hitting wise. I usually get ripped for this around here, but if the Reds took Kershaw I wouldnt be too disappointed if the right college pitcher werent there.
Can't argue there, but it seems like there will be at least one or two top college SPs around when they pick. Then go HS in the 2nd or 3rd rounds.
