Padres take four straight college players .. ;-D

I just hope we can get the 'Cesars' signed.

Carillo was considered the most MLB ready righthander, and Ramos the most MLB Ready Lefty. Both fit the mold of Stauffer, Eaton and Peavy, in that they could be MLB ready within two years. :-)

Looks like the Sox got their future closer and centerfielder in Hansen and Ellsbury ;-D

It's good to be the champs ;-D

I was happy to see the Brewers grab 3B Ryan Braun. He's a great hitting prospect with speed, although his defense is questionable. Still, if he hangs around at 3B, he could be ready shortly after Weeks and Fielder make their major league debuts since he's an advanced college prospect. The idea of a Fielder-Weeks-Hardy-Braun infield excites me.

somebody mind doing a quick copy/paste of the picks so far? I'm on a computer short on java/plugins for the moment, so can't check out the Draftcaster deal.

Thanks!

Really happy with the Sox's two first rounders. Ellsbury has good upside and Hansen is this year's Huston Street, a guy who will be in the majors very soon to help the ballclub out. Gotta go find their other early picks now.

couldn't wait for the draft to get started...I keep up with all the minors and the draftees because in my fantasy baseball league you have to since you can keep minors for free.

Upton was a lock for #1, no need to go anywhere else with that pick.

Gordon is going to be a good one, but being in KC will hurt him

Clement has a ton of power, but will he be able to be a great MLB C?

Zimmerman is a safe pick. Great defense, questionable bat.

Braun is kind of a reach, don't like that pick for the Brewers.

Romero will be a stud for the Blue Jays...great lhp

Tulowitski fell but he has the talent to reach the majors next year

Townsend is a safe pick also, not going to be a #1 pitcher

Pelfrey has all the talent, but has struggled lately, and has Scott Boras

Maybin is going to be an all star, as much talent as Upton

McCutchen has a huge upside, but will he hit at the MLB level?

Bruce has jumped up the draft boards, 5 tool OF with huge upside

Snyder has the bat to be a 1st Rd pick, but might not stay at C

Crowe is a speed guy, good runner, and can hit for power

Broadway tore up the NCAA Tournament, good pick for the Sox

Volstad is kind of a safe pick. Not gonna be a #1 guy, but good RHP

Henry has an all star ceiling, but will take some time in the minors

Carrillo will be a Padre within a couple of years, good #2-3 pitcher

Mayberry dropped on a lot of draft boards, still has the talent though

I'm glad you guys got your centerfielder. Because your centerfielder now is going to be our centerfielder...

Yeah I was sitting here heckling my friend who's a Met Fan because they passed up Hansen...Then I started thinking the Yanks would take him...And then he goes to Boston!
