The old one got pushed down, so here we go.
Kicking it off is new stuff from our good friend Frankie Piliere, with a few comments of my own to complement it.
-The Mets are centering in on . . . C Justin O'Connor. I've suspected that teams were playing it very cool on O'Connor for a while now and that there were multiple teams who were targeting him as a signability guy, but not even I thought he would get THIS high up the board. This pick would probably blow up some boards in the 16-21 pick range.
-The Indians have locked onto Drew Pomeranz.at No. 5. Not too surprising . . .I think their interest in Chris Sale was largely predicated on the idea that Pomeranz would not be there, and since they know that KC won't take him off the board, they're showing their hand. Solid pick, relatively high upside as far as Indians picks go.
-The Brewers are focusing on Jesse Biddle, but projectable prep RHP Luke Jackson (4th round pick in the Unofficial 4th Round of the Official Unofficial Minor League Ball Mock Draft) is apparently their second choice. Sounds like another guy that teams have been playing it cool on for a while, but at this point in the process, the fog starts to clear.
-Deck McGuire might just fall to the Reds at No. 12, which would also blow up draft boards. I had the Reds pegged for Alex Wimmers or Christian Colon, and having both of them still on the board would probably cause some teams to start shuffling things around. It looks like concerns about Colon's upside are starting to rear their ugly head, but I can't see Wimmers falling too much farther down. And where exactly will Matt Harvey end up?
