    Guys, I won't be here the rest of the night and parts of tomorrow...I'm getting a couple of abscessed teeth pulled tomorrow around 2:00 but I should be back on here around 3:30 or so depending on how I feel. If someone could keep this going and PM the folks whose picks are coming up then I would appreciate it. Hopefully we can into the second round tomorrow.
    I miss Adam Dunn.

    Palazzone is a nice pick. I really like him and was hoping he was being ignored a bit.

    It was gonna be difficult to pass on him with his particular array of pitches especially the filthy change-up he possesess at such a young age. I wanted to be a bit more safe with this pick than a HS arm but there was just too much to like.

    Re: 2008 mock draft seclection thread

    The Braves select: ROSS SEATON, RHP, Second Baptist HS, Houston

    During the fall, Seaton pitched at 88-89 mph, wasn't a coveted recruit by Texas colleges and projected as a fifth-round talent. But after throwing 90-94 mph all spring and touching 96, Seaton has leapfrogged several others to establish himself as the Lone Star State's best prep pitching prospect. He features a slider than can range from devastating to flat, and an effective changeup. While his secondary pitches are inconsistent, his control isn't, as he throws strikes with ease. His delivery is smooth and easily repeatable. Big and strong at 6-foot-4 and 215 pounds, he's also a quality athlete who will see action as a two-way player if he attends Tulane, following in the tradition of Micah Owings and 2005 Astros first-round pick Brian Bogusevic. As an outfielder, Seaton offers power, arm strength and average to plus speed. A lefthanded hitter, he also has shown the ability to make adjustments at the plate. Nevertheless, he'll focus on pitching if he turns pro. Though he's a good student, Seaton is expected to sign if he's drafted in the early rounds. The Astros have shown a lot of interest in the local product and could target him with their sandwich-round pick at No. 38.

    *BaseClogger* sent me his pick. With the 41st pick in the draft, the Chicago Cubs select a man-child chiseled from marble with life breathed into him by Apollo - Salisbury School SS/OF Anthony Hewitt. He could be the next Glenn Braggs.

    NC Reds and the Padres are on the clock.

    He could marry a member of the R&B group En Vogue? I'd like to see that.

    It's a new generation, so he'll need to hook up with a *****cat Doll or something like that.
