Feeling pretty good about pick #8.
Here i am going to focus more on pick # 35 overall....
BTW, My Power board for #8 (subtracting the guys i'm sure will be gone)
1. Alex Jackson
2. Nick Gordon
3. Kyle Freeland ( Simply put just to good a pitcher to pass up at #8 )
4. Brandon Finnegan
5. Erik Fedde / Grant Holmes (Holmes is a real sleeper pick or dark horse at #8 right at slot)
7. Brad Zimmer
8. Trea Turner
9. Max Pentecost (The Kennesaw St. stars' stock is really going upward, but imo Rox have quality catcher depth)
10. Jacob Gatewood
I'm warming up to the idea of pitchers Nick Burdi or Luke Weaver if either one of them is there; Burdi has more upside but I like Weaver's floor and quality pitching. Both guys could be future innings eaters.
Sleeper pick would be Keaton McKinney (IA) the high school hurler.
For positonal guys, I do in fact, like the idea of prepster OF Michael Gettys
and Stanford has a couple of positional guys i like as possibilities here. IF DEREK FISHER is somehow still there at 35 i consider him option numero uno.
Maybe a catcher in the second round makes more sense?
Any thoughts, ideas , arguments greatly appreciated!
Rox fans speak up! I'll def. take you're opinions strongly.
