Giants MOD #1 *UPDATED*

SBNation user Nnamdi Asomaugh (probably spelled wrong) was nominated at the Giants SD but hasn't been around, so I figured I'd get a MOD up to start the discussion while Giants fans figure out if Nnamdi will be around to run the draft or if we need to enlist a replacement.

To get the conversation started, below I'll list 5 college pitchers and 5 high school pitchers I like at #25, and we can discuss from there. Later I'll update the post with hitters, or that can be the subject of MOD #2. But I want to get the conversation going.

College pitchers (NO ORDER, JUST NAMES)

  1. Chris Anderson, Jacksonville
  2. Marco Gonzalez, Gonzaga
  3. Andrew Thurman, UC Irvine
  4. Ryan Eades, LSU
  5. Alex Gonzalez, Oral Roberts

High School Pitchers (again, no order)

  1. Matt Krook, CA
  2. Hunter Harvey, NC
  3. Jacob Brentz, MO
  4. Rob Kaminsky, NJ
  5. Phil Bickford, CA

Discussion topics: Among pitchers, how would your board look? Is there someone I missed that you like at #25? What about guys for later rounds? I'm partial to Carlos Salazar and Jonah Wesely for the #64 pick. Do you think the Giants go college or HS in the first round? What would you do?

*UPDATE*

I'm adding hitters now and let's start formulating a Round 1 draft board. Again, I'm just going to throw out a list of names that I like, let's talk about them.

College Hitters

  1. Eric Jagielo
  2. Philip Ervin
  3. Austin Wilson
  4. D.J. Peterson
  5. Hunter Dozier
  6. Chad Pinder (bonus, for Shank)
High School Hitters
  1. Travis Demeritte
  2. Dustin Peterson
  3. Mason Smith
  4. Cavan Biggio
  5. Oscar Mercado
I struggled finishing up that HS Hitter list. Mercado's not a first round guy, but could be interesting in the second. Does Aaron Judge fall to 25? And if so, is he worth drafting? I personally prefer Jagielo.
