    Re: 2008 mock draft seclection thread


    With the 24th selection in the 2008 Rule IV draft, the Philadelphia Phillies select redraft #34819 - Jemile Weeks, 2B, Miami




    Phillies GM Pat Gillick on the Pick

    We're really excited about Jemile still being on the board, especially since we'd heard he could get picked in the top 10-15. His amazing athleticism is a huge key - we've got him rated as the top athlete available in this years draft. An excellent switch hitter, we're confident that he'll be a stellar up the middle performer for the Phils for years to come.

    Re: 2008 mock draft seclection thread

    The Rockies will select Garrit Cole with the 25th overall pick.

    Cole is widely considered the best righthander out of SoCal since Phil Hughes. He throws a four seam fastball that works from 93-96, but has the ability to dial it up to 98. He maintains his velocity and movement late into games - when he makes it that far as he has a tendency to run up pitch counts. This may necessitate a move to the pen down the line, where he might profile as an elite closer. His curve has bite, breaks late and hard. His changup is a work in progress, and he's been using it more as his season has wore on. Part of the appeal with Garrit is his projectability. He's tall and lanky with room to fill out. But he does have some issues, namely with his mechanics - although his maturity has also been called into question by some. He's going to be a work in progress, but the potential reward is huge. And the Rockies are elated to be able to grab his talent this late in round 1.

    Re: 2008 mock draft seclection thread

    Sorry for the delay everybody....

    The Dbax are very pleased to see that Brett Lawrie is still available. He's their pick.

    from BA:

    Scouts debate whether Lawrie is the best Canadian hitting prospect since Justin Morneau or Larry Walker, but he's definitely created buzz in a draft relatively short on high school bats, drawing some comparisons to Craig Biggio. If he had a more defined position, he would be a cinch first-round pick. Signed by Arizona State, Lawrie has too much present hitting ability to wind up in college. One scout compared him to Marlins slugger Dan Uggla for his strength, power and muscular, mature build, and several scouts have graded Lawrie's power as above-average if not 70 on the 20-80 scale. He's not just strong but also has a keen eye, offensive instincts, aggressiveness and quick wrists that drive the bat through the hitting zone. On a spring trip with his Canadian travel teams (Langley, B.C., Blaze and the Canadian junior national team), Lawrie went 21-for-30 against extended spring training and college teams, including 14 extra-base hits. He hit doubles off Kyle Davies and Luke Hochevar in a game against the Royals' extended spring team. Several scouts summed up his offensive approach by describing him as "fearless." He's also athletic with above-average speed (6.75 seconds in the 60). Defense is Lawrie's shortcoming; he plays infield and catcher and also has seen time in the outfield, where one scout described him as "disinterested." He's shown the tools to catch, as he's built for the position at 6 feet and 200 pounds, and he has an average arm at the least. However, his bat might be too advanced for him to take the time to learn such a valuable defensive position, and some scouts doubt that he'd have the temperament to handle it anyway.

    Damn you lollipop. The Red Sox were going to take him, play him at catcher and change his name to Captain Canuck.



    When he makes the majors the plan was to change the team name to the Boston Superfriends.

    Sorry! The exchange rate is Justin Masterson and LMonstro or whatever that dude calls himself.

    Capt. Canuck's fairly old school. Don't know if he's been around much over the past 28 years.

    The Twins take Conor Gillaspie. The third base situation in Minnesota is so bad that he might be the starting third baseman the day after the amateur draft.
