I don't draft anyone to whom the word 'polished' is attached....

Again, will you stop giving Keith Law any credibility whatsoever. His list is a total joke, and largely reflects what he read in pre-season prospect reports. How can Joe Savery be listed as #50 and Cole St.Clair not even making his Top 100, when both are almost sure to be first round selections?

Believe it or not, I'm not saying this to rile up a certain Rice fan, but I think he'll be drafted too high as a hitter, and I'm not convinced he's destined to have a healthy career as a pitcher.

Nitey, Savery is going to be drafted soley as a pitcher. As good a hitter as he is, his future in professional ball is as a left-hander starter. Low 90s moving fastball, plus plus changeup and average cuveball. Excellent location on his pitches (doesn't give in to hitters). Ground ball pitcher. Off-the-charts competitiveness and will to win. Leader on and off the field. IMO (and this is just me here), I think he needs to develop either a splitter, cutter and slider to go along with the rest of his arsenal.

St.Clair is much more the prototypical power pitcher, with a snarl and no-nonsense demeaner on the mound-- coupled with a pronounced leg kick-- that adds an intimidation factor. He's also a big guy at 6'5". Low-to-mid 90s fastball, outstanding changeup, splitter and curve with outstanding location and command. K:BB ratio during his college career and stint last summer for TeamUSA is off the charts. As a left-hander he reminds me a lot of El Sid, but without the conditioning issues or control problems. Should be interesting whether he is signed as a closer or converted back to a starter (where he was used during the post-season last year).

He's actually thrown more innings this year than I thought.

I only partially withdraw my objection....

Nitey, he was intentionally nursed along for the first 6 - 8 weeks of the season-- on a strict pitch count that gradually increased from 40 pitches to 80 pitches-- but has now pitched 6 - 7 innings in each of his last 4 or 5 starts. Remember, with the Rice bullpen (especially now with St.Clair back in form), I think starters have exceeded 7 innings pitched on only 4 - 5 occassions all season....and I think starters have exceeded 100 pitches on a similar, minimum number of instances.

BTW John Maine's brother is highly regarded and is a Lefty.

If we come away with

42 Tanner
47 Horton
79 Meyers, Nolan or Brandon
95 Maine
101 Luebke

I'd be happy. But I also know nothing about them..........

OH SWEET! Upon doing research I realized that that list I posted did not include guys who were not signed last year like Hochever and Scherzer and everyone else unsigned from last year (there are a lot :D ). Not a bad year to have 5 of the first 101 picks.I'm predicting this draft to be huge for us.
