Jesus, there's so much gold in this draft. I wish draft picks were tradeable so we could deal Marquis, Pudge, and a couple other guys for first-rounders. :insert drooling smiley without Dukes pic:
Hultzen 3-0, 0.87 ERA, 0.43 WHIP, 36/1 K/BB.Stud.
Would you take him with the 6th pick?
Here's the Friday night roundup - http://www.baseballamerica.com/blog/college/?p=4168Lots of good pitchers this year. I'm back to leaning towards taking 3 pitchers. LOL.
I don't think he lasts till 23... but 6 is probably too early for someone with his potential.
What if Hultzen continues to dominate the rest of the season? He's in the low 90's on his fastball which is good enough for a lefty. Detwiler is in that same neighborhood and he was thought of highly enough to go 6th (or 5th or whatever - don't remember exactly). Lots of MLB lefties are very successful in the low 90s.Not raedy to proclaim him a good pick yet, but if continues down the path he's on, he'd be tough to pass up.
I don't get why people are down on Hultzen with the 6th pick. He's dominating ACC competition so far. Maybe I need to read a more negative scouting report on him or something. Anyone have one on him that is down on his projections or says he's topped out or won't translate to MLB level or whatever? All the scouting reports are so high on all the premier prospects it's hard to want one over the other. I get the part about his fastball, but it's not too soft for a lefty. I guess people feel he doesn't have as much upside as some other pitchers? Production vs. upside, hmmm..
College coaches usually don't give a damn about pitcher's arms.It's something that needs to be regulated better.
No competitor will EVER consider taking himself out of a game. If he actually said that, he cost himself a lot of money. What's next, "coach I'm a free agent this off season, I'm done."
If I was Trevor Bauer, I would have taken myself out of the game. I would have been like "Coach! This is my future we're talking about here. You can take this game and shove it."
