Check.


Is anyone really surprised?


"Meh" was my reaction as well.

I don't understand the criticism of Walker. If your first pick is #47, why not take a toolsy guy with potentially high upside? I agree with Kevin Goldstein on this one.

Yeah, it's telling me that Law doesn't know enough about Walker to offer an informed opinion.

That phone is definitely busted. That would work a lot better if they skyped this.
The pick is Chris Bassitt RHP Akron.

This Collin Kuhn kid could fly through our system. Tough to strikeout, gets on base, can show some pop and very good defensively in left or center field.

Kevin_Goldstein Kevin Goldstein
It's weird, yes. RT @jahoffmn: @Kevin_Goldstein is it crazy that the White Sox didn't draft a high schooler until the 21st round?

Lance Jeffries got drafted in the 10th round by the Cardinals, I know this doesn't really matter to most of you but it kind of does to me.
My best friend of 12 years played summer ball with this kid for the past 2 years and he can fly. Also has a very good arm (clocked in the lower 90's) and plays a good CF. He can hit the ball to, short quick swing and has some pop (hit a 450+ feet bomb last summer). He is going to be someone to watch, its crazy seeing these high schoolers get drafted when they are the same age as me..

Just felt like sharing

The Cubs just drafted a power hitter by the name of "Rock Shoulders." Amazing.

Yahoo Sports on Walker

The Pick: Keenyn Walker, OF.
The Buzz: If there was a more ho-hum day for any prospect, it was Walker, who has been drafted each of the last three years now. His stock has improved each time from the mid-30s, to mid-teens, and now into the sandwich picks. The Sox like his potential to be a top of the order hitter, but he has been slow to develop his batter's eye. The ceiling is fairly low for this pick and does not excite very much.

But walker is not a high ceiling player. Your argument could hold wAter if they drafted a guy like Matt Purke but Walker is a reach at 47

Walker might not be a lot of things, but he is most definitely a "high ceiling" prospect.

Maybe I'm reaching here, but judging from Ozzie's Twitter he isn't pleased about Ozney not being drafted yet.
