MLB draft is tonight, anyone as excited as me?
Yeah...I know it's not exactly hyped up...or exciting. Still, figured I'd see if I can't get some discussion going. I know Fetter is in it, and projectprospect.com recently did a sleeper post, writing a pretty good blurb on him and how he could eventually become a decent major leaguer, mainly because he's got the perfect build for a pitcher.
I'll be following with more of an eye towards the tigers, figure I'll throw out a few names I'd like to see them try and get. Tyler Matzek would be great, but unless he's asking for a whole lotta money I don't know if he'll be there. I really like Jason Kipnis a lot if he's there in the 2nd, not very toolsy but he has put up monster numbers in college. Derek Maccullum *SP?*, the middle infielder out of Minnesota would be nice too, especailly with the tigers lack of depth up the middle, with noone to speak of outside of Iorg and Worth, who are both having incredibly dissapointing seasons in the minors.
I think they probably end up taking a power arm in the first though, maybe Shelby Miller, and then just drafting whoever is best available from then on out. Grant Green is another possibility, although a bit of a reach at number 9 overall, still, they do need a SS eventually, and he was very, very highly though of coming into a year in which he dissapointed by only hitting like, 310 or something.
