    Also, I show Muhammad drafted in the 49th round. My sense is that he surprised on the up side in 2010 in the AZL. I have no idea what he throws.

    Didn't realize Chacin's fastball was that weak... Hopefully he can add a bit to it. Sounds like he's getting by on his slider/polish...

    What about Miller DDirt?

    From Baseball Draft Report: http://baseballdraftreport.com/2011/...aft-in-review/

    TCU JR RHP Erik Miller: 87-91 at new arm angle, 93-94 peak; good sink; good SL; good 81 CB; average CU; strong three year track record; has relieved, but could be seen as starter; 6-3, 210; Tommy John survivor
    &

    Fellow Lone Star state college arm Texas Christian RHP Erik Miller (Round 31) has a similar sinker/slider pairing, but also throws a good low-80s curve and a useable change. Four pitch pitchers who throw strikes tend to get shots starting in the pros, but Miller could be the exception.

    A little comparative stat by way of suggesting why Cody Puckett's being undervalued here. Last three years, Chris Valaika 1207 AB's: 86, extra base hits. Puckett: 1224 AB's, 163 extra base hits. Puckett's two years younger.

    I hope Puckett can be useful, but he has no defensive value and comparing him to Valaika is a fairly low bar offensively.

    Having better players makes "the right time" or "the big hit" happen a lot more often. PLUS PLUS

    Only chose Valaika because he's getting five votes for Puckett's one. I think a guy whose hits are over 40% for extra bases will prove useful.
