And with the number 5 pick of the 2009 MLB Draft...


Recommended Posts

That list was done back in October, and that site is pretty notorious for just scatter-shotting early picks to get the hits and then adjusting closer. If you saw the early views on last season you know what I mean, the final list looked NOTHING like it.

Personally, I'm not real high on Tate, but we've had that debate. Barring an amazing season this year, Scheppers shouldn't go in the top 15. And my last major problem with it, is unless Ackley goes to 2B or the OF, I don't see him as a top 5 pick.

Here's FoxSports' mock. I like it because of the # 5 pick, and it has Atlanta taking Tate. It also seems like a good read. http://community.foxsports.com/blogs/seattle_seahawks_rule/2008/10/18/2009_MLB_Mock_Draft

It isn't bad, BUT it is written by a 13 year old (read the sidebar to the right), so I'm thinking it's more of going with consensus from other websites than actual insight. Some of the picks I think are way off.

Minor should go mid first, not that late. Tate could drop easily because of his intent to honor his commitment to go to school, he'll be a TOUGH sign. The top 5 are all very possible though, so I'm willing to wait until the season is well underway before going with mocks.
