2007 Draft

I will be Tivo-ing the draft Thursday to see how it's presented on ESPN and how non-excited I will be when it comes to the Brewers pick.  I guess the question is not who you would pick, but what would you be looking for?

I am not a draft expert, but having paged through the year-by-year (PDF) of the first rounds, it looks like you're really cheating death by selecting a high school pitcher.  I understand teams want to capture lightning in a bottle, but wouldn't a surer thing be selecting a college pitcher?  

As far as the Brewers outlook, I do not think they need to draft any hitters unless there is a solid catcher available.  The infield is supposedly set, and outfielders can be had.  A college pitcher could be ready in three years, a high school pitcher in five ... I would say a college pitcher is the way to go.  Who, I don't know because I find it difficult to follow college baseball.

I have faith in Team Canada and fully expect them to pick the best available.  They've had extraordinary success in their picks thus far.

Sickels' mock draft has the Brewers picking Jarrod Parker, RHP, Indiana HS.  Just what the team needs, another HS pitcher.

MLB Press Box's official info page.  Let me know if you can see it, it used to be off limits but they have done some tweaking of the site this year.

[editor's note, by Jeff] Thanks, nmc, for posting this. Personally, I'd love to see Matt Wieters (power-hitting college catcher) fall to #7, but I don't think it'll happen: I've seen him projected as high as #2.
