    Why not take a guy who's ALREADY a starter?
    Because of wear and tear on the college arm?

    Baltimore's draft looks pretty solid so far as well..

    Rowell, Beato, Britton.. solid picks I think.

    That Velazquez guy looks a lot like Soriano, IMO. Build-wise. Never seen him hit (and I doubt he can hit like Soriano).

    Why is he subject to the draft? Couldn't he be signed as a FA?
