    Hit 2 HR's in NCAA regional game vs. Creighton two days ago. Moving on in college WS I think. Named Regional MVP. Hit 2 HRs in a game in Feb. too. 11 on the season.

    I doubt LaMarre ever hit 2 HRs in a game in his life.

    Gotta love to hear "fringy tools" in a comp pick.

    Good call. Keith Law seems to like him more than most, as he had him as a top 40 player. I like the first two picks better. Gelalich sounds like the type of non-flashy overachieving college player that this regime seems to love (LaMarre, Lohman, Greene, Valaika).

    Oh well, at least they went for upside with the first two guys. I would've preferred Virant, Rahier, or Alex Wood, but I hope Gelalich makes me forget those guys. Unless of course we take one of them tomorrow...

    Not excited about this one...

    I like the upside of the first two picks, but don't see it here. Let's hope I am wrong with Gelalich.

    Couldn't have said it better myself. I will still root for the kid and hope he proves me wrong.

    Not a bad draft overall so far. I'd have loved it if they'd changed the third pick to Virant.

    Sorry, got sidetracked by the slideshow of UCLA cheerleaders on that page. Was there an article there about baseball too?
    2014 predictions:
    99-63 WS champs (Cards take 2nd WC, Mil 3rd, Pit 4th, Chi 5th)
    Bruce/Votto neck and neck MVP race (neither takes it)
    Bailey CYA winner
    Hamilton ROY & GG

    Law had Gelalich rated 37th overall, with Winkler not in his top 100....
