    The benefits of Overslotting is dead. Dead.

    I just don't see how if teams are willing to spend 8-12 million for Top picks, why they wouldn't be willing to spend 800K to get a 3rd Round talent in the 8th Round.

    Awesome, Jason Castro taken, Mets have been linked to him alot and I'd rather go for more upside.

    Yes he was.

    The guys I think they look at are

    Weeks little brother, Ike Davis, and maybe Cole.

    Astros abide by slotting with Castro.

    My guesses.

    Rangers will take Smoak and A's will take Hicks or Weeks.

    I like Lawrie, Wallace, and Hewitt the most on the remaining hitters.

    edit: Forgot Davis.

    Yeah, without Rickie's power or OBP skills

    Just raw upside. Could work out, I suppose. But they coulda done better.

    I know you don't draft for need, but.....

    Brett Wallace to the Cards? They're pretty set at First Base and that's the only thing he can handle.
