From Goldstein's chat:

msambor (chicago): thoughts on keenyn walker?

Kevin Goldstein II: I like him! Risky pick, but I like going with upside when you don't have a first rounder. He definitely could flame out early, but it's worth the risk.

Another easy sign?

Check.

"Raw, toolsy, athletic," former football player?

Check.


Is anyone really surprised?


"Meh" was my reaction as well.

Day 2 begins in 30 minutes. Expect plenty of college pitchers.

Pirates grab Bell. Good for them. Power potential is ridiculous.

#Cubs take Dan Vogelbach, who is fat but has crazy power. Sent out a pre-draft letter looking for $1.65 million.

Jays grab Norris. Number 14 talent. Huge if they sign him.

Tilson goes off the board one pick before the Sox. Wonder if he was considered. Is more signable than initially thought.

White Sox select Erik Johnson RHP. Cal.

Number 97 on BA's Top 200.

Erik Johnson - RHP - college arm. 4 "major league average pitches," could move quickly, though not projected to be front of rotation - workhorse type.
