Do these picks help the Sox in terms of college bats available at 11?

Confusing draft to me.
Who's your guy for the Sox?

The way things have played out in the top five, it looks like a top hitter will be available for the Sox if they choose to go that route (and they damn well better in my opinion...)

I've been in the Haseley camp for a few weeks. Not looking good though, the A's, Phillies and Angels have all been linked to college bats.

Well, when you pick #11 you should have at least a couple premium type bats available. It will be interesting to see if they consider a high school bat.

It will be very surprising if the A's go with a pitcher, they've been linked to all sorts of position players.

Well, there goes Smith to the D'Backs. Didn't figure to make it to the Sox in most mocks.

Dammit, there goes Haseley to the Phillies. Might be the best hitter in the draft.

I think the Brewers would be dumb not to grab a pitcher here. Bukauskas and Faedo would be great additions to their system.

Disappointed we didn't get Haseley. Hoping for Evan White.

Brewers helped the Sox out there.

I think we're grabbing a pitcher. The value is pretty high at #11 for Bukauskas and Faedo.

This is going as anticipated. Give us one of those cannon arms.
