    MLB Network said Ramsey's closest comp is Skip Schumaker. I bet knowledgeable Cards fans aren't too thrilled about that.

    How is Carpenter going to explain that pick to his son?

    (Too easy, I know.)

    That is hilarious for a first-round pick. I love it. Our pick is looking better and better.

    Yeah, me too. At first it looked like a major reach but after doing more research, he appears to be a late riser like Bruce and Mesoraco were. He seems like solid pick, though I wouldn't have minded Stratton there.
    I miss Adam Dunn.

    Gammons is loving this pick. Somebody better call the medics. His heart rate is up.

    I am so glad the Reds didn't take him - that alone makes me like the Travioso pick

    Yes, but batted better earlier in his career and was projected as a top-5 pick before the college season began. Has the D to stay at SS for sure.

    Travieso's April No Hitter and a story about it... liking the pick a bit more, especially if we get one of Shaffer, Piscotty or Roache.
