    By the way the real prize is going to be next month when 16 year old Dominican Micheal Inoa becomes a free agent. Yankees are so going to be all over him.

    We are all wrong.

    Alonso from Miami. Bit of a reach, but a good pick. I like Smoak far better than him.

    Suprising, Alonso?

    I love the principle that the best players are going early, but man this kinda sucks too.

    Yup, Smoak is the better hitter, but probably was demanding more $$

    That'd be difficult. I heard Alonso wanted 8 million.

    White Sox have to be going with either Beckham or Smoak here, you'd think.

    One of the top Reds scouts probably fell in love with Alonso

    For the most part, this draft has been very predictable.

    Only predictable in the sense if you expected the slotting system to crumble.

    Overslotting will rear it's ugly head in the middle rounds. Austin Jackson style.

    You don't think other teams are aware of that as well?

    The benefits of Overslotting is dead. Dead.
