Max Scherzer from missouri. He's 21 and can hit 99. He k'd 130 in 106 innings. Look out....

I think Andrew Miller's going to be the #1 pick. Mid-90s fastball that can top out in the high 90s, great 2 seamer, slider that has been compared (although probably an exaggeration) to Randy Johnson's, and a projectable 6'6" 210 lefty frame. He's been ticketed to be the #1 pick in this year's draft ever since he didn't sign with Tampa in the 2003 draft ( :,-( ). His command leaves a bit more to be desired, but he can pitch effectively wild at times.

Scherzer might have the best fastball in the draft, but his breaking pitch, while effective, isn't near that of Miller's. Plus, he's going to have signability issues as a Boras client (although Miller may have signability issues of his own).

Scherzer is pretty sick, but I think he may project as a closer rather than a top starter in the bigs.

Andrew Miller was generally regarded as the top choice for the #1 pick in the 06 draft before the season, and he has done nothing to disappoint so far.

So far he is 6-0 with a 1.34 ERA, and has 61 K and 10 BB in 47 IP. He has two plus plus pitches (fastball and wicked slider), and if he gets his changeup down, watch out.

Here is a link to a story from his most recent game when he shutout the top-ranked Florida State Seminoles:
