    I've been busy working (and have more to do before leaving at 5:00 to see Homer!), can anyone give a quick little synopsis of what we've been drafting today. My son called and said they'd draft a slew of pitchers this afternoon.

    We have a bunch of pitchers, SS's, and C's. Seems like most kids drafted today were college seniors.

    I'll try to get on the board sometime tonight and update the Selection thread will all drafted players. It'll be easier to see the breakdown once I get that thread updated.

    Round Overall Player Position School State
    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.

    Re: The 2007 Major League Baseball Amateur Draft Discussion Thread (Day 2)

    I was wondering that since we havent taken many from texas (especialy considering how many in the last few years) if the death of our scout down there after last years draft (cant remember his name) has anything to do with the lack of picks from the lone star state??

    Isn't that a little early to drop out of the draft?

    Wow. IIRC, that hasn't been done in a while.
