Liberatore has to be the pick, IMO.

I agree, but I'm really hoping not because I want to draft him in my dynasty and I can't do that if he goes to that pitching wasteland.

Keeps the high ceiling arms falling too...


At this rate, I say switch it up for the Cubs strategy and target one of the falling TOR type arms. If Shane McClanahan is still there when the Cubs are picking they better take him.

I am a big Grayson fan, but #11 ahead of Libertore? Not sure I can justify that.

Rodriguez at 11 and evidently Groshans is going 12. WTF is going on? There's not enough guys to save for. These teams are not smart.

Let these arms fall. These next 4 picks will dictate whether the surplus will be with college arms or prep bats.

Or college arms (Singer, Gilbert, McClanahan, Kowar)?

We really don't know enough about these guys ability or their signability, to really say a team isn't smart for their pick. All we have our videos and various publication's scouting reports.

There was a lot of negative stuff said about the Cubs' draft that netted them Schwarber and Cease and the Cubs did pretty well for themselves there.

I think there are too many teams ahead of the Cubs that will take a college arm like him (Angels, Cardinals, Twins, Brewers).

But the Cubs should take him unless there's someone else they like even more or if there are some issues with his medicals.

I think it depends on $$. There's a chance that the reason he hasn't gone yet is that it's a Mark Appel situation, where he has a high number and only like 3 teams can afford to make that work. But if he can be had without Ricky Williams-ing your draft, you gotta do it.

I'm guessing Liberatore finally goes here to Tampa but what a fall.

I don't think I'll ever forget how dumbfounded the mlb hosts were after the Schwarber pick because Alex Jackson was higher up on the list their producers handed them before the broadcast.

It happens in the drafts of other professional sports so I say it happens here too -- paralysis by analysis.

Liberatore to Tampa. Still have Singer and Gorman out there. McClanahan is extremely interesting too, as a guy who's dropped due to recent performance.
