Cubs.com article on the draft

On their home page it just says "Cubs aim to add another athletic player". But when you follow the link a picture of Tyler Colvin pops up. I threw up in my mouth a little bit.

I look forward to the middle rounds of Wilkins draft.

I hope they do get a decent athlete who actually has some baseball skills as well.

I think Casey Kelly may be a good choice, because he's athletic and he's been around baseball all his life. Good combination.

the cubs system sucks right now. this would be a really good time to dedicate a lot of money to the draft and either grab a guy who slips in the first round for signability reasons (porcello) or make a few wise (read: not rundle/huseby) over-slot investments in later rounds.

Agreed. The Cubs should sign the best player available. Signability shouldn't be a concern when you consider how much the Cubs make. We need talent badly in the minors. Instead of getting better with Wilken it seems that we have gotten worse.
