The Orioles will ruin him.
Most likely.

Drew Pomeranz looks like such a douche. I'm proud Arkansas threw his first loss of the year on him.

In relation to an earlier post, I think it was a tie game at 1-1 or 2-2 or something, guy on second, and they walk Zack Cox out of fear for Pomeranz's first career IBB issued only for Eibner to knock it out of the park on the next pitch.

Who is Loux?  :?

Mets probably take Zack Cox. I have seen Met scouts at almost every Friday night Razorback home game. I saw Met, Rays, and Cubs scouts last couple night eating together before the Arkansas Regional games.

He[Harper] scored from second on six wild pitches in 2009.

WTF! Had any of you all seen this before?


Have a feeling this could turn into some Bill Brasky-esque type shenanigans  :lol:

Will Bryce Harper be allowed to wear the war paint with the #Nats? "No," Mike Rizzo said.

Never seen that.

Eibner tagged up from second to home two or three times this year. He has wheels.  :az:

#Nats scouting director Kris Kline said Bryce Harper reminds him of Larry Walker and J.D. Drew as a hitter.

Starting with the Mets, every team that passes on Zack Cox will regret it for the next 10-15 years. He'll start for someone at 2B and 3B for over a decade and hit .300 with around 20 HRs a year.

Really, really hard to believe that Bryce is a 17-year old.

Also, Barret Loux?

@AdamKilgoreWP: Rizzo says drafting #Harper was "easy choice." Playing outfield will "accelerate his development," "extend his career."

Darn. Padres pass on Cox... Oakland A's hate Arkansas after Dave Van Horn flat out called the A's cheap to the media. Hopefully Blue Jays pass. I think Reds take him... I hope like heck the White Sox take him. They'd love him. He's a gritty player.

As we speak, Zack Cox just hit a single for the Razorbacks on the first pitch after inuries have limited him last couple days.

Comeon, White Sox, take him!!!!

Did I just hear Harper on ESPN News say he hasn't decided whether or not he's going to stay at CSN another year?

The MLB draft is nothing like the NFL draft. There are so many people that have that NFL thing down to a science. Here, I'm looking at a draft report that's all over the board. There were two guys picked early that weren't even on this guy's top 200 guys! Definitely makes it more interesting.
