More Shadow Draft Thoughts

New, 18 comments

Maybe I'm too quick to dismiss going for pitching with my Shadow Twins....considering the crop of decent bats that should still be available in the second round. How about this?

14) Josh Fields, RHP: Successor to Joe Nathan?

27) Reese Havens, SS-3B: Move him to third base immediately.

31) Whatever college outfielder is left here, would love Eric Thames

Or how about Thames at 27 to make sure I get him, then Conor Gillaspie at 31? Another option would be to slot a high school guy, hitter or pitcher, at 14, then fill in with safer college picks at 27 and 31.

The whole Shadow Draft process isn't just a game. It helps me organize my thinking about ranking players for the draft.
