#WhiteSox will get some value hear. I think it's Hawkins, Stroman or Wacha. Mock guessed Wacha, I'll guess Hawkins. #mlbdraft

First prep player with a 1st rounder since Honel was taken in 2001.

Hell has frozen over.

Kudos to the White Sox for taking who they think is the BPA, no matter the level.

I would lovvvvvvveeeeeeeee to see Giolito here but I doubt Kenny has the stones.

Edit: Guess not, but Hawkins isn't a bad pick.

If it's Hawkins, solid pick. Sox stressed upside, and Laumann said three weeks ago this was as good of a year to take a prep player at 13.

Kenny might not have the money.

Word earlier was that the White Sox were working on a deal with Marcus Stroman here. Courtney Hawkins' presence could change that.

Good call.

So do I. Some aren't going to be happy though. Long ways away. Very raw, lots of swing and miss to his game, and not the best approach. The tools, and power though. Could be a superstar. Very Mitchell/Walker/Thompson esque based on recent picks.

Expect pitching all the way at 48. Brady Rogers, Jake Barrett?
