J.P. (Chicago): Kevin, was this a signability pick? Should we expect the Cubbies to take a guy with big money demands in the 2nd or 3rd ala Samardzija?

Kevin Goldstein: I don't know what it was. Just totally dying here on that one. Biggest first round shocker since Matt Thornton? Wow, as if the Rays needed a break here, they get the best high school hitter in the draft at 17. Teams with previous picks with regret this one.

I couldn't find the Cubs pick on BA's top 200.

He isn't

D2 pitcher that most people don't know about. Many scouts simply don't know who the guy is. It's a ridiculously odd pick.

I like that even Cubs fans who are "smart" enough to follow along the draft and understands the ins and outs of it still refer to them as "Cubbies."

Jeez, I figured he was just a huge reach - maybe ranked around 100 or something.

One wonders if the Angels can/will sign Cowart. He wants to hit, but is likely better off pitching.

One would describe him as a sleeper, but that still doesn't mean you nab him in the 1st. He likely would have been available later. It's just very peculiar.

Also, this comment from a draft chat made me lol:

[Comment From andy andy: ]
from twitter: thedugs OK if you think Hayden Simpson is a sleeper. But the idea behind a sleeper is that you let it sleep awhile, not slap it at 3AM.

He just barely made it on that list, #191.

Adios Folty.

At least we will get to see him pitch against the Cubs.

Some fellow named Churchill calls Sale to Sox a reach...

http://insider.espn.go.com/mlb/blog?...aft&id=5262353

Just the number 5 ranked player by BA (Much much much much much more highly regarded when it comes to the draft than ESPN).

Time for Boston to land the uber talent that slips because they have deep pockets.

Edit: Maybe not. Great value for Boston though.

Minnesota has to be taking Wimmers or Workman. Supposedly Wimmers was the dream scenario.

Decent pick by the Red Sox. I'd assume they'd convert him back to third base or corner outfields. Unless they have plans to move Pedroia.
