It's not surprising that the draft is looking different than many mock boards due to the lack of 2020 data to go off of due to the lack of games to evaluate.
Elias is clearly not afraid to go with a guy with one plus plus tool (power) which is a bit surprising for the #2 overall pick. His hit tool is probably plus as well, but the K-BB ratio prior to his short junior year makes him a bit of question mark when he has to face professional pitching on a nightly basis.

I missed Melanie Newman's first opportunity to call a home run, so I had to go back to it after the game to see if she had a "signature homerun call." I was pleased to hear that she didn't seem to have one. She simply described what happened. No "that ball is gone!" No "Goodbye, home run!" No "Hasta la vista pelota!" Which I am fine with. I know having a signature homerun call is important in the minds of lots of great announcers, but sometimes it comes across as forced, or perhaps contrived. Perhaps she will slip into one naturally as time goes by, but until it happens, just describing what happened is okay by me.
