MLB.com has a nice draft tracker for those interested in keeping up with every pick.

Anyone think the Sox may redraft Donald Veal if he's there in the 3rd round?

His numbers recently are stunning.... I still feel that he's two years out. Also that is when our Cuban Lads will be done.

Just another soft tossing White Sox selection.

Which means he'll put up decent minor league numbers, be promoted to the big show, and be promptly dismantled by major league hitters.

Unless a minor league pitcher of ours has a great secondary pitcher (McCarthy, Gonzalez)--or three satisfactory pitches (Buehlre), I will never expect much out of them if their velocity fails to exceed 91mph.

I was thinking that myself. Some good pitchers still out there...Zach Ward,RHP Gardner-Webb, Mike Billek, RHP Central Florida & Ryan Mullins, LHP Vanderbilt are a couple I like.

Maybe a pick to use as trade bait for a team that wants somebody who's real close? Kind of like the Royce Ring pick.

Congrats! He's obviously a huge reason why WV will be playing Friday in Geneva.

That Greg Maddux, he sure sucked!

Velocity is not everything. There are many pitchers who don't throw 93+ who are top of the line starters.

You mean like Garland? Broadway has the best college curve and a plus change he's worked hard on. Why don't you settle down instead of being a jag.

Actually, when Maddux first came up I believe he threw pretty hard, about 93-94. He backed down as he got a little older for movement and command.

As far as I remember, from his Cub days, he never threw harder than about 91. He had the ability to throw harder if he wanted to, but would lose the movement which made him effective.

The radar gun is a terrible way to judge a pitcher.
