Rivals.com Draft Update

I've never been worried about Buster signing but I have had my doubts about some of the other key Giants draftees.  I'm still shocked at the low number of picks that haven't signed.

Regardless, I did stumble across this little ditty on Rivals.com College Baseball coverage.  Let's hope their predictions come true.

 

OF ROGER KIESCHNICK

Our prediction: Signs pro contract
The skinny: The Dan Spencer era at Texas Tech is officially in business, and the Red Raiders would love to get back hard-hitting outfielder Roger Kieschnick this fall. Kieschnick was selected in the third round of the MLB Draft, but is strongly contemplating a return to the Hub City. In a few words, his return would be huge for the Red Raiders. In 2008, Kieschnick batted .305 with 17 homers and 65 RBIs. He also slugged .632 and had a .407 on-base percentage. While the Raiders should show improvement in 2009, Kieschnick would certainly help their chances.

SS BRANDON CRAWFORD

Our prediction: Signs pro contract
The skinny: This has been an interesting story to follow. Once considered to be a lock to sign, Crawford is contemplating a return to UCLA for his senior season. While Crawford didn't have a flashy junior campaign, he certainly compiled respectable numbers. The shortstop hit .302 with seven homers and 51 RBIs. He also slugged .491 and had a .394 on-base percentage. In the field, he had a .957 percentage. Though many observers believe Crawford has the ability to be a first rounder next summer, turning down fourth-round money is always a risky proposition.
