    Re: 2006 Official MLB Draft Thread

    Who are the top prep arms who will still be available? I am guessing we see a HS arm come off the board, ala Travis Wood.
    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    I'd like the Reds to draft Brandon Belt either in the 2nd or 3rd round. I like him a lot.

    Additionally, I could care less what other major league teams think of our picks. We are competing with them, and if peer pressure is driving draft picks, then we have the wrong people running the draft.

    The hyperbole associated with draft picks is an annual treat.

    Emmanuel Burriss is still on the board. My homie from Kent St. Hope he goes to a team that can use him, like the Tribe.

    If you read last year's thread, there was universal mocking of the Wood pick in the 2nd, yet he's been the best pick of the '05 draft to date.

    That he is. I happen to think his bat will come around and he'll be a serviceable 2B and lead off hitter. Kind of a Marlins (of the past) player, Luis Castillo, etc.
