So I have the Phillies. They don't have their first pick until 40, followed by picks 54, 77, 95, and 125 through round three. Over the last four years, they have picked a HS player with each of their first choices, 3 position players and one pitcher. Over the first three rounds, they have picked:
7 HS position players
3 HS pitchers
2 College position players
3 College pitchers
I think it is safe to assume that pick 40 should be used on a prep player, probably a position player. Given the limits of the new CBA, the Phillies have only $4,916,900 to spend in the first ten rounds. Given that number, we can't go too crazy if a player falls to 40 with big demands. Who is everyone interested in at 40, given the parameters of a HS position player? Or do we want to go the prep arm route, given the depth in that area this year? I will post my own ideas after hearing from others. I am really hoping to hear from Phillies fans about how they think the Phillies mock should go.
