MOD Giants


Hey guys,

My name is Matt and I will be the Director for the SF Giants in this years Community Mock Draft. I've drafted for a few teams here in the past and I'm excited for this years edition of what I view as a very deep draft.

I was mulling taking the weekend to develop a long post on San Francisco's past draft tendencies, their projected needs, and the direction I view them going in the first few rounds. However, I much prefer a conversational style in MODs where we can bounce ideas off one another.

However, it is important to note the bonus pools for the Giants this year, which I have listed below:

2. $7,494,600
45. $1,587,600
80. $738,700
106. $528,200

And finally, the top #5 on my board:

1) Casey Mize, RHP, Auburn
2) Brady Singer, RHP, Florida
3) Joey Bart, C, Georgia Tech
4) Alec Bohm, 3B, Wichita State
5) Jonathan India, 3B, Florida

While not really necessary to list a top 5 when we really only need 2 sitting at #2 overall, I figured it doesn't hurt! Everything I've heard on the Giants draft plan has them picking Bart at #2 assuming Mize goes #1, but I'm personally higher on Singer over Bart, which I think should be the first component to the discussion in this MOD; Singer or Bart at #2? Once we settle on this we can develop a long board for the rest of the draft.

Further, I will be looking for an Assistant Director to help on draft day and be available should anything arise. Please let me know if you're interested! Looking forward to getting this started, guys.

Matt
