Piliere's Mock Draft 3.0

I would hate this pick. I've done a complete 180 on Brentz. Odd that he speculates Castellanos/Sale not in play anymore. Same with Wimmers, who I've grown to like.

Any word on Mitchell's rehab? I hope he is doing well.

There was a recent article about him. He is ahead of schedule supposedly, and will likely participate in an instructional league this fall.

Ready to overdraft Ozney Guillen?

Why the hate? He seems like a pretty darn good hitter. Would you rather they take a "safe" college arm? Brentz might end up being a nice corner OF bat.

Just because a few scouts don't like him lately?

There seems to be many more questions about Brentz now than earlier this year. The comments/reports I read about Brentz a few months back compared to now are drastically different. I'm not a scouting expert by any means, I just read and gather as much information as a I can. Earlier this year there were Markakis comps being thrown about, noting him as being able to hit for both power and average with good (not great) corner OF defense.

Most currently I've seen a few Francoeur comparisons, wonders about his plate discipline, swing, makeup, and projections as a .250-260 hitter with 20 - 25 HR power. I guess "hating" the pick might be a reach, but there are better options in my opinion.

I would much rather have a Michael Choice, Alex Wimmers, Deck McGuire etc. I think Wimmers is vastly underrated. Good fastball, plus changeup, plus curve, and good command. I don't particularly love any of the options that are likely going to be available at 13 (this is a weak draft class), but I wouldn't be upset over Wimmers considering the complete and utter lack of pitching in the system.

Both were a waste of a pick.

To be fair, I believe Ozney is a better prospect, but not by much. It's difficult to find scouting information on him. Callis responded to me on Twitter a few weeks back saying that he isn't highly regarded, similar to Oney's prospect status.

Good piece on FutureSox about some recent mocks and rumors:

http://www.chicagonow.com/blogs/futu...ions.html#more

I would tend to agree on many of the assertions. I think Wojo is an intriguing arm, but he would be an over draft at 13. I like Eibner a bit more than Asher, but still not at 13. Wimmers and Workman are very real possibilities, though I like Wimmers a tiny bit more. Deck McGuire would seemingly be the ideal fit if he drops and I would be very happy with such a pick.

Law has the Sox taking McGuire in his 2.0 Mock.

I still hope we take Brentz.

[Comment From Shaun Shaun: ]
Do you think Bryce Brentz could outperform his Markakis ceiling? Are the recent scouts who don't like his plate disapline possibly overreacting? Wednesday June 2, 2010 2:17 Shaun

Frankie Piliere:
I've heard Ryan Braun ceiling so yes I think he could. It comes down to nitpicking this time of year though so any weaknesses a play has are going to be pulled apart and dissected.

Hah. No worries. If they do, I'll be cautiously optimistic. I think he's better than what I've been giving him credit for as of late. The Francoeur comparisons made my blood run cold though.
