    I'm having my doubts Rocker gets that far. I have my doubts he drops to number 2...

    MLB's new rankings #1-150. It's interesting that preseason guys once thought worthy of the top-5 have dropped so low; Hill is now #30, Fabian is #49. This could actually bode well for Bloom's second pick... 34th?

    I do, too, but it's nice to dream.

    I do like the fact that they think the top 4 are all solid, and it drops off after that. That means we will likely get a solid player at #4.

    I don't pretend to know more than Bloom & Co., but I'd feel better if we get one of those 4, and even better, if he's from a college.

    As long as it's not my alma mater. Those Worcester Polytechnic Institute players rarely live up to their pre-draft hype...

    Fabian having a 32% k rate IN COLLEGE, isn't a good look.

    @jimcallisMLB
    I'll use this as an opportunity to plug @JonathanMayo's mock draft, which will be out tonight.

    As of now, I think Mayer & Lawlar go in the top 3, leaving the @RedSox looking at some combination of the Vandy RHP & Davis at 4. My best guess w/7 weeks to go is Davis. #DraftTop200


    If they have the choice of either Leiter/Rocker or Davis, it'd be gutsy to take Davis IMO. They better hit on it.

    The high school pitcher Jobe has been moving up--he is an intriguing option. I was watching some of his video and he has a nasty slider. The Red Sox need SP prospects over position prospects. Still, I'm not taking a high school SP--too much risk involved. As good as Jobe looks now, how good will he look two years from now when he gets TJ Surgery?

    Davis will be hard to pass on for obvious reasons. If the Red Sox come out of the draft with Davis, it will be a good day.

    I've almost given up on any hope of getting a pitcher from our system.
    '
    We have done well by getting them from elsewhere, and stocking up on everyday players from our system.

    That's not to say we can't change. It sure would be nice to get a deGrom form our own system.

    A possible strategy:

    The astute Twitter account, @redsoxstats, recently pointed out that the Red Sox could target either LSU’s Jaden Hill or Ole Miss’ Gunnar Hoglund in the second round. Both pitchers were potential first-rounders before undergoing Tommy John surgery this spring.

    Great, let's draft pitchers already hurt. They'll fit right in!

    (Sarcasm alert. Getting one of these guys in the second round would be nice.)

    Most recent MLB mock has Rocker falling to the Sox

    That’s a common Yankee first round strategy. They draft Kaprielian and Schmidt either knowing they needed TJS or after having it recently done.

    I honestly think the Yanks will snag either if they fall to them.

    If you have a late 1st round pick, you should always go for the high upside guy. Sox took too many Deven Merrero's.
