We seem to have reached a consensus for the top pick, with some order of Gray, Appel or Bryant - take whomever is available of the three. Bryant is certainly climbing with his recent performance, which has the two-fold effect of not only solidifying his status as a top 3 talent for me but also putting him into the mix at 1 or 2. In that event, I think we stick to our board and take whichever of Appel or Gray falls. However, there is some chatter that Houston may pop a player like Frazier at 1 (I realize this is only a mock but one frequent Minor League Ball poster has Frazier going 1st overall in his mock).
So, if both Bryant and Gray are there, are we still on Gray? What about Bryant and Appel?
For this entry of the MOD, I want to start looking forward at the next picks (#42, #70, #77 & # 109) with a focus on pitching. I posted some arms I like at 42 and beyond, and would love to hear some more names you all think we should be considering.
Here are some of the arms I am looking at (previously posted):
Devin Williams RHP Hazelwood West HS (#44 & #20)
Andrew Mitchell RHP TCU (#49 & #34)
Blake Taylor LHP Mission Viejo HS (#54 & #41)
Tom Windle LHP Minnesota (#46 & #60; Early report by MG HERE)
Bobby Wahl RHP Ole Miss (#36 & #67)
These links should get us talking on pitchers. Anyone I missed that should also be in the conversation?
Next, we'll dedicate MOD #3 to hitters, but please throw some names out there for rounds 2-4 as well.
