Kent Emmanuel or Jonathan Denney in the 3rd. I can't believe they have slipped this far.

Round 2: Sean Manea SP

 
Not a chance on that one.  Boras said yesterday that Manea won't take a discount, virtually guaranteeing he'll go back for his Senior year.  I honestly would be surprised if any team even wastes a pick on him this year in any round knowing that.  This season was kind of a disaster for him, so in his case he is better off going back and doing a mulligan next season to try to pitch better and show he's healthy.  The only way that doesn't happen this draft is if some team goes crazy and gives him a ridiculous offer, which probably won't happen.
This is probably why the Royals took a flyer in the first round, to free up slot money for Manea and others.


Yeah I actually think the Royals are going to have a decent draft despite their first rounder.

Barret Astin is an 7th/ 8th round guy IMO

Pretty sure Stanek will be long gone by the Cobs pick in the second, but there are two other Razorback pitchers that should be around on day two; Barrett Astin and Colby Suggs.  Astin more than likely projects as a 4/5 starter or long guy from the pen, where as Suggs most likely projects as a set up or closer type.
 
Randall Fant is a senior that night even go undrafted or way late that might stick as a lefty out of the pen as well.
 
That's about all UofA had this year was pitching, they hit with RISP worse than the Cubs.


Arkansas alumini / fan?
no / yes
 
Actually went to college at Arkansas State, and I agree with the round projections you have there.

Your man Colby Suggs was drafted in the Competitive Balance Round B by the Marlins.
That's about right for him IMO.

Yea, I really want Kent Emanuel. Andrea is dumping buckets here in Chapel Hill, btw. Don't know if we're going to get the first Super Regional game off today or not.

We picked Jacob Hanneman. Why ?

Seriously?

I had him going at the end of the 5th round.

At least I have comfort in the fact that Emmanuel was gone.

I'd like to see Cubs go after Bobby Wahl in round three.  Developed college RHP whose floor is a solid reliever setup guy and ceiling of a low 2 high 3 SP.  Talent and track record is there with Ole Miss, Cape Cod and Team USA



Look how far he fell.

Not a horrible draft so far.  At least we are getting more arms.  I would rate it a 7 out of 10 so far.  Might change my mind later, still torn between a couple of the palyers.

I believe Randall Fant went in the 9th round on an underslot.

So yeah, I have upgraded my opinion to an 8 out of 10.  Bryant is growing on me.
