Draft


Recommended Posts

Nooooo idea, but you'd have to think it'd be a college bat, right? I get their logic in going pitching heavy these last couple of years, but it might make sense to start stockpiling bats. This organization severely lacks any upside bats. Newcomb, Heaney, Tropeano, Ellis, Rhoades, Smith, DeLoach, Gatto, and Alcantara all offer intriguing arms, but there's a scarce number of bats in comparison. Regardless, just glad to have back-to-back years of first round picks.

I think it was on the effectively wild podcast, but someone was saying that the draft class this year is particularly weak. I even think they said that the guys that are going to be picks 1-10 wouldn't even go in the first round in the last several drafts.

Looking at the MLB rankings right around where the Angels will pick I see Chris Betts High School SS and he is local. Another SS Kevin Smith for AZ. Say he has a below avg arm and might fit better at 2b. Cornelius Randolph looks good but he is a High School SS that profiles at 3b in the pros.

That just means the first 15 or so picks....  It's been pretty much studied that after the first 15 picks, every draft is basically the same.   So, the only time a "weak" draft is really worth considering is when you're thinking about possibly signing a FA or not.
