Van Dyck notes some names connected to the White Sox that we've heard previously.

Heaney, Stroman, Wacha, Hawkins, and Smoral.

Jim Callis ‏@jimcallisBA
I'm told that #Astros have no decison at 1-1 and are discussing five names. I guess Appel, Buxton, Correa, Gausman & maybe Almora. #mlbdraft

Callis mock: http://ht.ly/blw0B

I'd be interested in Stroman. People are turned off by his size, but it doesn't bother me.

Same. One of my favorite players in this year's draft.

Story on how the new rules will impact Sox and Cubs.

http://www.chicagotribune.com/sports...2830493.column

Quotes Callis talking about why the Sox haven't spent money in the past (and may not spend the full amount this time...)

OK, looking at the Draft board, why are there 32 first round picks this year? I get that Toronto's pick at 22 was for their unsigned 1st round pick, Beede, last year, so that adds 1 extra pick in the round, so where is the other coming from? I see the other picks that changed hands are all for free agent compensation; Fielder, Pujols, Cuddyer, and Papelbon... But those are picks moving from one team to another, not creating more out of thin air. So where is this mysterious extra pick and why is it there?

Greatest Arsenal goal I have ever witnessed. Chills to this day watching it.

13th and 48th overall are the first two picks.

Most expect a college pitcher in the first round. Wacha, Stroman, Stratton and Heaney seem to be most discussed.

13th in the 1st Round, we have the 48th overall pick in the Supplemental Round (for losing Buehrle), and then basically have the 13th pick in every round from then on.

Wow, Correa goes first. I've only been reading about these guys for a couple weeks and don't watch much college baseball, but that seems like a surprise. Love his story and character, though.

Can't say I'd be very excited about taking a reliever with a first rounder.

Given the Twins pitching woes, as great as Buxton is, can they really pass up on Appel?

Love the pick for Houston. Correa had some huge helium late.

I'd bet the Twins get Appel.
