Sweet! I love this day but don't want to wait until prime time.

I personally want to hear the future White Sox LF or RF "Bryce Brentz" called out but I know I am a minority.

It couldn't be that you have him in the Dynasty league is it?

As of right now, the smart money would be on the Sox selecting a signable college pitcher. Shocking, no?

I'd bet it will be one of the following:

-Asher Wojciechowski
-Brandon Workman
-Barret Loux
-Alex Wimmers

Hey I would take Manny Machado for the Sox too!

Thats just a bonus for me. The Dynasty league did force me to do an early dive into this draft but I've been a fan of Brentz. I had him scouted out after his monster year in 2009.

I think getting McGuire would be nice if he's still available, but after that I would probably prefer Wimmers or Workman. In my opinion, Asher W projects as a reliever.

Many scouts think the same about Asher, but they love his frame and the fastball/slider. If he develops his changeup, he could be a 2 or 3 starter.

I'm not the biggest fan of Workman. His mechanics and delivery are all over the place and there are repeatability issues. He does have a very nice curveball though. I don't think his upside is considerably higher than Wimmers, who I think is underrated. Wimmers has two secondary pitches described as plus, and a fastball that sits in the 90-93 range with good movement.

In Law's final mock, Wojo is the pick. Grandal is being considered if available, and there is limited interest in McGuire. (Thanks Jeff)

Those interested in the draft probably know this already, but the first 4 picks are very close to being sure things.

1. WAS - Bryce Harper
2. PIT - Jameson Taillon
3. BAL - Manny Machado
4. KC - Yasmani Grandal


Washington's pick is obvious. Pit seemingly has been flip flopping between Machado and Taillon for a while. Whoever they don't pick is assuredly going to be selected by the Orioles. The Royals supposedly have a pre-draft deal with Grandal.

Everything after the first 4 is in flux. I think there will be some surprises tonight.

Banner headline at whitesox.com regarding the Draft:

"White Sox never ones to play it safe early"



I guess they think nobody's been paying attention.

Right on with Wimmers. He's been my favorite so far this year.
