Well, I don't think you should complain about pitchesr. You should simpoly take the best player available, and if they feel that's a pitcher, that's who they should select.

But Vitters is the next best thing ;D do you guys think he will be our 3B of the future after Ramirez's contract ends? (meaning he won't be called up till then -or- they turn him into a right fielder?)


I would guess he would move to the OF. They just signed ARAM to a big contract and they say that Vitters is a polished hitter for a High schooler, and that he might have a fast track to the show.

I'm upset b/c the best player availabe was Weiters or Porcello. Not this guy! But they stayed away b/c of the Boras thing.

When the baseball draft went live on television for the first time in the event’s history, close to 500 fans were packed into Disney’s Wide World of Sports Complex outside of Orlando, Fla.

By the time the second round was over Thursday, the fan count was down to four. Still, commissioner Bud Selig was satisfied with the overall turnout, and didn’t rule out a return to the venue.

“That’s up to our people,” Selig said. “This is fine. It’s a wonderful venue. No complaints.”

Lacking the hype and recognizable names of the NFL and NBA drafts, baseball finally joined its counterparts on ESPN2… While the other major sports usually have their potential top picks at the draft site, only three were in attendance Thursday: California high school infielder Josh Vitters, Missouri State left-hander Ross Detwiler and Canadian pitcher Phillippe Aumont.

“I hope we have more kids,” Selig said. “The only thing you don’t want to have is a Brady Quinn-type situation. The poor kid is sitting there. We were lucky today. We didn’t have that here.”
