    The Mariners shouldn't over-think this. Just take Appel and be happy.

    Maybe the Mariners and Orioles are looking at particular players. I know the Royals are looking at pitching. He won't fall past them.

    Mariners take Zunnino - can't really say its a bad pick irregardless of Appel

    Well, the M's definitely think Jesus Montero is a DH and not a catcher.

    You really can't draw that inference from this pick.

    6 of the next 8 top ranked picks are pitchers.

    Orioles will take one of Appel, Gausman or ZImmer, and Royals will take one of the two left of those

    Yes - thru the Sandwich round

    Well, you kinda can. I don't think the M's would have drafted a catcher at #3 overall (especially with Appel on the board) if they believed the 22-year-old Montero was their catcher of the future. Know what I mean? I think they love Montero as a DH, just not as a C.

    KC likes Zimmer so it'll be interesting to see if they skip him and take Appel instead

    Appel picked a bad week to quit sniffing glue.
