In the third round, though? Look at the Cafe mock going on right now, and look at the pitching talent that's going late.

I'm typically not taking any pitcher in the 3rd round. It would really depend where he is being drafted in relation to other SP. There's a small handful of guys I would take before him, but the list isn't very long.

Longoria had 30 and 100 even with a DL stint and extreme bad luck with BABIP. As far as speed goes, he should still be around 5-8 stolen bases which is better them most 3rd basemen. If his BABIP goes up 80 to 100 points, which it very well could this year, what kind of year could he have?

If Ellsbury HR go down do you think his SB will go up a little?
