    Folks, let's keep this thread clean for easy access to the picks. Use the other sticked thread for discussion and reactions.

    I moved some posts from here to the discussion thread (before you ask why they disappeared).
    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.

    Re: The 2007 MLB Amateur Draft Selection Thread

    Here's what the Reds did in the first 5 rounds:

    15 Mesoraco, Devin Punxsutawney Area HS C R/R 6'01" 1988-06-19 HS 400K
    Comments: Mesoraco has answered any questions about his arm following Tommy John surgery a year ago and is on the rise among catching prospects. He's a complete catching package, with hitting ability, power, good hands, a plus arm and outstanding leadership ability.
    Enhanced Scouting Report

    34 Frazier, Todd Rutgers U New Brunswick SS R/R 6'03" 215 1986-02-12 JR 400K
    Comments: Frazier was drafted three years ago, but he honored his commitment to Rutgers, following in his brothers' footsteps. He's had a very productive year at the plate, showing power and run production ability even though Rutgers has hit him out of the leadoff spot. He'll change his place in the order as a pro just like he'll likely change his spot defensively, from shortstop to either third or a corner outfield position. Considering the dearth of college bats in this class, it's hard to imagine he'll last long on draft day.
    Enhanced Scouting Report

    53 Lotzkar, Kyle South Delta SS RHP L/R 6'04" 200 1989-10-24 HS 400K
    Comments: Fellow Canadian Phillippe Aumont has been getting most of the buzz, but Lotzkar deserves some as well. He's got an intriguing power package with a fastball/slider combination. How well he can harness and command his stuff, along with doing more with a third pitch, will determine whether he's a starter or reliever in the future.
    Enhanced Scouting Report

    79 Cozart, Zachary U Mississippi SS R/R 6'01" 185 1985-08-12 JR 400K
    Comments: Cozart has perhaps the best set of hands in this year's draft class and shortstops who can catch the ball are often hard to find. His lack of speed may hurt his range as the game speeds up and there is a question as to how much he'll hit at the next level. Some see him as a shortstop who can hit in the two-hole, but he also may just be a utilityman who hits ninth.
    Enhanced Scouting Report

    104 Carroll, Scott Missouri St U RHP R/R 6'05" 210 1984-09-24 SR 400K

    109 Soto, Neftali Colegio Marista HS SS R/R 6'02" 180 1989-02-28 HS 400K
    Comments: Soto has an intriguing package of tools that includes raw power and above-average speed. Currently a shortstop, he doesn't profile as a guy who'll be able to stay there, particularly range-wise. That's OK, because his offensive skill set fits better at third. He should hit enough for the position and could develop into a No. 5 or 6 hitter in a big-league lineup.
    Enhanced Scouting Report

    139 Stouffer, Blake Texas A&M U 1B S/R 6'00" 190 1985-10-11 JR 400K

    169 Bowman, Andrew U Nebraska Lincoln LHP R/L 6'04" 190 1985-11-08 JR 400K

    1 15 Devin Mesoraco c Punxsutawney (Pa.) HS PA
    As strong as this year's high school class was considered at the outset of the season, it got even better when high school righthanders Jarrod Parker and Nevin Griffith and Mesoraco came out of the gate showing better tools and ability than they had last summer and fall. Griffith and Mesoraco appeared in showcases, but they didn't show impact potential until this spring, and Mesoraco has been the biggest riser of them all. An arm injury led to Tommy John surgery when he was a sophomore, and he was relegated to DH duties as a junior. His arm strength has slowly returned, and this spring he has shown a 70 arm with quick, efficient releases. Defensively, Mesoraco compares favorably to 2001 Angels first-rounder Jeff Mathis, with athleticism serving as the foundation of an agile, quick-twitch player who receives and blocks exceptionally well. He shows above-average bat speed and 50-55 power at the plate. He's a solid-average runner, too, rounding out a legitimate five-tool package that probably won't make it out of the first round.

    Our 12th round pick, Scott Gaffney, was most likely picked as a pitcher, not a SS. He gets up to 93 mph on the mound.
