I will be very unhappy if Loux is taken. Yuck.

We definitely need to stock up on pitchers, but I don't get why Merkin has to telegraph something like that to the other teams...

Maybe we won't take a college pitcher.

Meh. I don't really like any of the 4 pitchers you listed earlier, but Loux has the highest ceiling (probably lowest floor too).

Here is a list of players with Boras as an agent for this year's draft. IE the White Sox are very unlikely to select the following players:

In the 20s. RT @zacdefrancesca: @Kevin_Goldstein as a MTSU fan where do you see Bryce Brentz goin? 8 minutes ago via TweetCaster

I expect this as well. I think he goes to the Giants. Most people see him in the 20's when ranking players in this year's draft.

[Comment From Alan: ]
Any new White Sox buzz? Please tell me Barret Loux won't be the pick.

Frankie Piliere:
I continue to hear Brentz. Wojciechowski and Kvasnicka also are options.

Essentially. I'm not entirely sure how things are sorted, but that is the gist of it. Maybe someone else can weigh in. Elias rankings are rather convoluted.

I've heard nothing but college arms. RT @mrausch86: @Kevin_Goldstein who do you see the ChiSox drafting? I have seen Brentz.

The more I think about it, the more I may want the Sox to seriously consider taking Bentz. I like Wimmers and McGuire, but hopefully the Sox can nab a few pitchers in the early rounds like they did last year. Brentz really does intrigue me.

Brentz could be one of the quicker guys in this draft to make it up to the majors if he end up playing to his potential. Thats another reason I would love that pick. The Sox need offense!

I don't buy the bat potential or the plate discipline. I think his ceiling is as a bit above average corner OF.

I think the situation at 13 sucks. Laumann described the position as no-man's land. Since the Sox limit themselves primarily to cheap college pitchers and college position players, options are limited. A bunch of middle of the rotation starter types if things pan out, or a few underwhelming college bats.

I will be pretty indifferent if any of the college pitchers or Brentz are picked. This draft class is very underwhelming.

I guess they think nobody's been paying attention.
Well, they never play it safe in terms of having their first pick actually be good.
