Good, they're going directly to the conference call now. This should move much, much faster.

The White Sox need to get a new phone.

Agreed.

I think MLB would be better served having the studio show start half an hour after the draft begins. They can take their time in analyzing guys who have already been selected and do some research, rather than scramble for information and pull random cliches out of their rear ends.

Yes, both have been drafted. Rasmussen (#73 overall) went before Klein (#85 overall).

Rasmussen was for sure. Don't think Klein has been.

Edit: Oops, didn't see that with Klein.


Incidently, Hahn goes off the board to the Rays. :banghead:

They shouldn't ask Hart whether or not he likes a pick or not since he likes every pick regardless if he's ever heard of the guy.

Pittsburgh jumped the gun at the start of the 8th round, trying to pick ahead of Washington. The guy running the conference call got snarky with them, which was pretty funny.

Austin Wilson to the Cards. I wonder if they have a shot at signing him?

Assuming they can get them signed, they've had an awesome draft so far.

I am really happy with the Cardinals draft. They are going to have to pay way above slot money for Wilson, though.

Kevin Rhoderick went in the first round in 2007. Is this a good snag for us?

Another Soto! Good thing Lou won't be around to take him out for a pinch hitter.

He was an 18th round selection of the Detroit Tigers.

Rounding out the 18th, the Rangers took Oklahoma's top offensive player, third baseman Garrett Buechele, the son of the ex-big leaguer Steve Buechele.

Rhoderick's a nice arm. Has good movement on his pitches, IIRC. Some issues, but his arm is good.

Overall, it's sort of an eh draft. Not bad (I was okay with Simpson, liked the gamble on Golden, like the Gibbs pick. Rest is intriguing enough.

I am really hoping that Hartman, Cox, Pinckard sign. I am dreaming that we can get Geiger signed, along with Strieby (Ryan's little brother). Both would add some intriguing positional assets to the system.

out of curiosity,, anyone have any idea who Wilken is referencing when he says that he lost some guys in recent years, and as such, he decided to go BPA and Hayden?
