Everyone's jumping on the Josh Vitters bandwagon, including myself. Unfortunately, chances are nearly impossible that he'll still be around at #10. We got lucky with Lincecum last year, but that's no indication we'll have that luck with Vitters this year.
Jim Callis of Baseball America says he's heard Beau Mills' name associated with our Giants.
Mills is the son of Red Sox coach and former ballplayer Brad Mills, so he's got the bloodline for it. He's a left-handed slugger that hits tons of doubles and HR but his defense is somewhat of an issue. He plays 3B but scouts project him more of a 1B. He's 6'3" and weighs 205 lbs. Oh, and he plays at Lewis & Clark, a school we're quite familiar with. Here's the best source of info about the kid:
So, what's your take on who we could realistically get with the 10th pick overall? Do we go for Mills or Matt LaPorta, do we try for Matt Dominguez that early? Or do we go for a prep pitcher with a big upside?
I'm pretty damn excited about this year's draft . . . and all Giants fans should be.
