They did cash in in the Supp. 1st, though. Street and Putnam are very solid.

As a D-Ray fan, I'm very happy with Niemann. Hopefully we can suck badly this year and take Upton at #1 next year. :)

There are a lot of players that go up a lot of rounds every year, so don't say that b/c of that the Moneyball stuff is overrated.

#5 Mark Rogers- Look for this kid in the future. Scouting report said he was best HS prospect in his 15 years of scouting!! 8-o

Dang, I was hoping that Townsend would go to the Rangers. Then I would have my favorite non Longhorn playing for my favorite MLB organization.

I'm an owls fan, I go to their games
Humber is a great pitcher (as opposed to a thrower), and he's probably the safest pick in the draft :)

Niemann throws so hard though, I think I saw him throw 98 once.

Alright, after reading some stuff about the weaver situation..and the suprising HS picks out of LA...here's the answers that seem to be msot fit.

1. because of the recent success of the dodgers farm system (being mostly drafted by the scouting director) who made these most recent picks, has the most weight or say on players who get drafted.

2. Weavers agent wanted prior like money. Art Moreno (Angels Owners) has the reputation for spraying out big money every and which direction......he would be like me if i owned a team and had multi-millions of dollars to play with. that could be good or bad...whatever is the case, it must be fun for angels fans.

There's another Upton out there? :-?


Yessir, Justin Upton. SS/CF...if the D-Rays were going to take Baker this year, I can totally see them take Upton next year with the #1 pick (hopefully they get it of course), since they want to take the best player on the board. In addition, the Upton/Upton thing might bring some more excitement to the fanbase.

I'm guessing Upton would move to 2B or 3B if he was drafted by Tampa (outfield is loaded). He has the arm to do so, though. If he makes less errors than BJ, who knows, maybe we'll see BJ move from shortstop.

He's probably the top pick with the fewest problems, but from what I read he won't be as good as some of the pitchers taken above him. He should make an impact pretty soon though.
