I'm fairly confident that Crow does not go to the Marlins. I say they opt for a easier-to-sign Catcher like Skipworth.

Prediction for Sox pick:

1. Gordan Beckham, SS
2. Justin Smoak, 1B/OF

If neither are there they will go pitcher.

C'mon, Smoak. Switch-hitting lefty with power AND average? We love ya, Paulie, but I wouldn't mind having something like that waiting in the wings.

That's right. He's a natural lefty (+) who can also switch hit (++). I view that as better than a right-handed batter than can step into the first-base-side batter's box, don't you? Particularly if he will have more power as a lefty bat (an assumption I am making).

I see where you're going there. I was more pointing out the oxymoron of the term "Switch-hitting lefty" there, when it occured to me (about 1 second after hitting the "submit reply" button) that you could have meant that he throws left handed. Duh.

I think the Giants will determine who we get. They are the swing pick of the top ten picks. If they go Smoak Posey could slip, if they go Posey we should get G Beckham or Smoak.

ESPN 1000 update says that Bruce Levine is reporting that the Sox will take Posey if he's available. For whatever that is worth...
