Cubs War Room

Use this space to discuss the individual picks as they come up. An updated big board below the jump. A couple brief notes first:

-just from this morning's tweets alone, it seems like most analysts still view Giolito's elbow as a major question mark. As far I'm concerned, he's off the board.

-I have a suspicion 1.6 is going to be Correa, Fried, or Almora. (You'll note I bumped Almora into a tie for #7 with Zimmer. If anybody's got an argument for Almora or Zimmer over Fried, I'd love to hear it--honestly, what I've been reading about Zimmer lately has not been encouraging. And moreover, I think he might get tabbed a couple picks before us, fwiw.) So get ready to look at some college guys in the supp round.
