MOD: Rockies

The Rockies pick #7, #32 (for Vinny Castilla), and #54.    It has been speculated that they may pick Luke Hochevar with their #7 pick.   Hochevar is a Boras client and pitches for the University of Tennessee.  

In their past three drafts, they have taken Chris Nelson, Ian Stewart, and Jeff Francis.    Their last two draft picks have been talented high school hitters, and Francis was a Canadian Junior.  

The big decision in drafting for the Rockies is deciding whether or not it is worth it to draft a quality high impact pitcher with the #7 pick who may suffer and struggle at Coors Field - or if the Rockies should try to their ballpark's strength and pick a quality hitter.
