I am a fan of both Martin and Lacy. Most draft experts rate Martin better and most have the Os selecting Martin at 1:2.
One writeup of Lacy says that he has the highest ceiling of any pitcher in this class and the highest likelihood of reaching that ceiling. That is a tempting description to add alongside the profiles of GrayRod and DLHall.
That said, Drungo points out the historical chances of pitchers being selected so high actually reaching their upside. Hitters are a safer bet generally and, for all of WC's knocking of Martin defensively, Martin is likely to remain at a premium defensive position.
Further, this is a draft deep in college arms and one where HSers might slide because they haven't been seen as much. So the Os should have some good options at 30/39 and might be able to take some chances there after selecting the safer top hitter in Martin - at least that is how most experts see it today.
2009 Draft was different for sure. I think pretty much the whole world at Strasburg going number 1, in spite of Boras as his agent.
Angels took Mike Trout out of High School at the age of 25 as a comp pick.
Trout is probably the best position player in the majors, and Strasburg has been very good, but not even the Ace of their staff, or the best at his position in the majors.
