Re: MLB Draft
The positional talent in this draft sucks. Laporta, Stubbs, and Longoria are the best college hitters and none of them are all that great. Parmalee, Sapp, and Cody Johnson is about it when it comes to the prep ranks.
The pitching is where it's at this year. I think the college pitchers of this draft, although some are underachieving, have a good chance of matching the '04 college crop talent wise. It sounds like Hochever is coming back also. Kershaw is the superstud high school arm, followed by Willems, Jeffress, Walden, Anderson, Betances, Latos, Kiker...so the depth of high school arms makes for an interesting second round.
