Review of the first two days:
1st round: Dunno. I would have picked someone different. But I’m just a goofball who’s seen 30-second snippets of video on MLB.com. I’ll begrudgingly trust the folks who’ve brought us Buster Posey and Tim Lincecum.
2nd round: Dunno. Seems like there were other guys I would have wanted. But I’m just a goofball who’s seen 30-second snippets of video on MLB.com. I’ll begrudgingly trust the folks who’ve brought us Buster Posey and Tim Lincecum.
3rd round: Wait a sec. This guy doesn’t even have a scouting report on MLB.com. But I’m just a goofball who’s seen 30-second snippets of video on MLB.com. I’ll begrudgingly trust the folks who’ve brought us Buster Posey and Tim Lincecum..
4th round: That’s better. This guy seems like a Todd Wellemeyer that you’d actually root for because he’s homegrown.
5th round: This is kind of a gag post, but this kid looks awesome. He hides the ball well, and it comes out of his hand quickly. I think.
6th round: Dunno.
7th round: Dude seems like he’s taller than me. Broader shoulders, too.
8th round: Joe Staley. I’m setting the over/under for Niner-related jokes in the draft thread at six, and I’ll take the over. Hey, beats a catcher named Kwame Harris who couldn’t block anything.
9th round: There has to be something better you can be doing right now.
10th round: At this point, I’m just rooting for the funny names. Sure, there’s a chance they could stumble into the next Brian Wilson or Ed Halicki, but I’m more hoping for guys like Storply Skazzlefazz, who doesn’t exist, but would fit right in with some of the better draft names of all time
19th round: Hey, this guy has a scouting report on MLB.com! He’s now my new favorite prospect. Total sleeper, man. Great value pick.
20th round: This would be pretty early for a nepotism pick, except Bochy’s kid is pretty legit. Just hope his medical advice doesn’t come from the same intern that looked at Mark DeRosa’s wrist for a couple of minutes after playing Trauma Center on Wii.
28th round: The best part of the late rounds is all the colleges you’ve never heard of. Gaspar Santiago from Ranger College? The greatest pickup line in the world just might be: "Hi. I’m Gaspar Santiago from Ranger College." Fun facts: The Ranger College Rangers, a) have a really stupid college/nickname combo, and b) play their home games at Ellis Burks Field, named after the school's most famous alumni, Burks Field, Jr..
Happy third draft day. If you’ve made it this far, congratulations. Now get in there and really freak out about the 34th-rounder.
