9. NATIONALS. Washington GM Jim Bowden loves to draft upside, and California high school outfielder/righthander Aaron Hicks could be mighty tempting. Advanced pitching is a greater concern, and the Nationals could have their choice of the second tier. Scheppers might have been the frontrunner before he got hurt, so that could leave Tulane righthander Shooter Hunt and Eastern Kentucky lefty Christian Friedrich if the Nats go pitching. In the end, Alonso's bat may be too good to pass up.

Projected Pick: YONDER ALONSO.

Im not really surprised because the scouting staff might be really high on him. Yes, he is another 1b but Alonso's bat is intriguing and look at his OBP , its amazing. He also ISN'T slow, he can steal bases but don't look for him to be a future 20,30 base stealers. He has good plate discipline, good power and has also a good frame. If he wasn't a 1b, we wouldn't see all these nats fans asking '' Another 1b? ''.

I want more pitching but also a balanced position player with speed.

We really need someone in the middle infield as of now. I know the draft won't yield us a MLB-ready prospect (We need one since we only have Belliard for 2009) but we don't have a lot of prospects there besides Esmailyn Gonzales and Jake Smolinski.
