Ran across this discussion of what to draft if you are the GM on The Hardball Times: http://www.hardballtimes.com/main/article/you-are-the-gm-reader-responses-part-one/
The original article: http://www.hardballtimes.com/main/article/you-are-the-gm/
The original article's supposition is that you are the GM and you have the 9th pick overall and these "players" (type of player really) are the ones you think will be available to pick, so you as the GM has to rank the seven players or at least select one or two targets.
Thought you all would be interested since the Giants got the #10 pick and the scenario centered on a #9 pick.
Most people focused on pitching, which, of course, would be a no-brainer for Sabean to do. To me, unless there's a no-brainer pitcher out there - and at #10, I doubt there is - the Giants would have the best chance of getting someone of value if they focused on a college hitter. BP's study of the draft found that the lowest risk when drafting is when you select a college hitter.
Then again, Kyle Drabek, one pitcher I've seen that might fall to #10 that some think the Giants might pick, is both a pitcher and a position player (SS?). Maybe we got the next Babe Ruth? :^)
I can see it now. He can start at SS on his non-start days, that would give the backup SS 32 starts a year. Or, since the SS uses his arm a lot, maybe move him to a position that not as much of a strain on his arm, like LF. Plus, it's easier to find a good hitting backup OF who would get 32 starts when Drabek is pitching. And he could DH when playing AL teams. :^D
Or he can be like Ankiel, if the pitching falls through, then maybe he could be a position player. If they can take failed SS and make them into pitchers, why not the other way around?
