Sounds like he pick we have to be happy about in the 5th round. Could be a reasonably pick mover.

Better than the Matt Reynolds pick last year?

Like this pick a lot. With the four upside picks taken early, an outfielder that can reach the big club in the next few years is obviously helpful, and the value for the round looks good as well.

Love it. Was hoping for him. Would not have even minded him at all in the third.

Geez. The guy has tree trunks for thighs. What a physical specimen. And a switch hitter! Very cool.

I think so. I liked Reynolds and wanted him in the 3rd or preferably 4th. Not happy when they took him so high.

I thought Reynolds had a ceiling of a utility guy that could hit:
Think Joe McEwing with Matt Franco's bat.

I think King could be better.

"I have no idea. He's a teenager. He may go through 5 arm surgeries between now and his 30th birthday. He may add a pitch. He may lose a pitch. He may put on 30 lbs and add velocity. He may put on 50 lbs and eat his way out of the league. I literally have no idea what he is going to be."

But thats not what these guys are paid to do, nor what we are looking for them to do, right?

A native of Dublin, Ohio, King enters the Corvallis Super Regional with a .327 batting average, 15 doubles, two triples, six home runs and 51 RBI. Named the Big 12 Co-Scholar Athlete of the Year, King ranks in the top 10 of the conference in eight offense categories, including a second-place mark in RBI. King was also a First Team All-Big 12 selection and a member of the NCAA Manhattan All-Regional team.

King holds a career batting average of .339 with 42 doubles, eight triples, 21 home runs and 138 RBI. He ranks 10th in school history with 71 career extra-base hits and is one home run shy of entering the school’s career top 10. As a sophomore, King earned Second Team All-Big 12 honors and was an ABCA First Team All-Midwest Region honoree.

No. 13 Kansas State faces third-ranked Oregon State in a best-of-three series for the right to advance to the 2013 College World Series, Saturday through Monday, at Goss Stadium in Corvallis, Ore. The Super Regional begins with a 6 p.m. (CT) contest Saturday, while Game Two is slated for 9 p.m. (CT) Sunday. If necessary, Game Three will be played at 6 p.m. (CT) Monday. All three games will be shown on ESPNU and can be heard on both the K-State Sports Network and www.k-statesports.com.


I hope to catch him on the tube this weekend. 8)

Not bad. Definitely seems to be the trend in the outfield corners...

MLB Draft insider:

Best Value: No. 146– Jared King / OF / Kansas State: I’ll just be blunt, there was no reason for King to fall this low, and when I see some of the names picked ahead of King I wonder if some teams don’t need to take a serious look at their scouting system.






Best/Worst of Day Two:
