2009 Draft *Update*

Recommended Posts

I can't make up my mind. I'm now starting to lean more towards Tyler Matzek. Contrary to what I originally though' date=' it appears that he has better stuff than Wheeler; he just doesn't throw quite as hard (but may end up throwing harder in the future).

This is why...

Best Fastball

Prep -- Jacob Turner, RHP -- Westminster Christian Academy (St. Louis, Mo.)

College -- Stephen Strasburg, RHP - San Diego State

Notable -- Billy Bullock, RHP - Florida

Best Curveball

Prep -- Chad James, LHP -- Yukon HS (Okla.)

College -- Strasburg

Notables -- Ben Tootle, RHP -- Jacksonville State; James Paxton, LHP -- Kentucky

Best Slider

Prep -- [b']Tyler Matzek[/b], LHP -- Capistrano Valley HS (Mission Viejo, Calif.) and Zack Wheeler, RHP -- East Paulding HS (Dallas, Ga.)

College -- Aaron Crow, RHP -- Fort Worth (Missouri, '07)

Notable -- Rex Brothers, LHP - Lipscomb

Best Changeup

Prep - Matzek

College -- Kyle Gibson, RHP -- Missouri; Mike Minor, LHP - Vanderbilt

Notable -- Crow

Best Command/Control

Prep - Matzek

College -- Strasburg

Notable -- Mike Leake, RHP -- Arizona State

Crow has a "notable" change up? His change up is average.....

And Miller's fastball is better than Turner's and Paxton should be the one with the notable fastball IMO atleast......
