DraftWatch 03/27/09

I am going to try presenting this in a slightly different way. Here is a link to a GoogleDoc spreadsheet with the normal DraftWatch information.

Cliff Notes version. Strasburg, White. Volz, & Minor go tonight; Oliver faces Gibson tomorrow; and I’ve added Mike Leake, an Arizona State RHSP.

    you gonna reply to Boz’s campaign against drafting the best player available?

    Trying to frame my argument. There are so many things to say.

    Brian i’m really excited about William Atwood, do you think he could be our new Cliff Lee. Or better yet, do you think he has the same potential of a Cliff Lee? I just see something very special with this kid.

    Wow, quite a start for Hultzen, 2011 #1 pick

    Ronny - Atwood is one to watch in 2009. It will be interesting to see how he takes to a full season. I’m not ready to put him in Cliff Lee’s category just yet, but he should be fun to watch.

    cj - 2011 is when Boz’ point about drafting a pitcher #1 overall can be raised. If Hultzen develops, he will challenge Bryce Harper (HS CA) for the #1 overall selection a la Prior versus Mauer in 2001.

    you rock…seriously.

    I guess I wore you down about Leake?

    Atwood was a 12th rd pick last year from South Carolina, 1.21 ERA and .9 whip in Vermont

    Oops, huge rain front just went thru Chapel Hill - don’t know if they’ll play (I stared at Gametracker for 10 minutes trying to see if it would work - then remembered all the weather down south -” Idiot!! Jeez!”).
