Draft Musings

As the June 9th draft approaches, some amateur players are beginning to establish themselves, either higher or lower.  I noticed that Andy Seiler, on John Sickel's website, has a mock first round draft list, so I thought I'd mention it to get your reactions.

He assumes the following top picks:

Washington - Steven Strasburg

Seattle - Dustin Ackley

San Diego - Alex White

Pittsburgh - Grant Green

Baltimore - Aaron Crow

San Francisco - Tyler Matzek, LHP, Capistrano Valley HS(CA)

Of course, there's debate about who will be chosen above the Giant's slot, but just for fun let's assume Andy has the first five picks correctly predicted. The question for the McCoven is: If Strasburg, Ackley, White, Green, and Crow are off the board when it comes to the Giants' pick at #6, who do you prefer?  (For those of you too lazy to click the link, he lists Zach Wheeler, Kyle Gibson, Donovan Tate, Rich Poythress, and Mike Leake as the next selections.)

So what do you all think?  Matzek would certainly fit into the Bumgarner/Alderson mold, and we do seem to have a good history with that approach.  Of course, there is the small matter of our ML offense needing help...
