From what I can tell, rounds 1-8 are the most likely to produce future MLBers. I'd like to see 3 LHP, 1 RHP, 2 SS/2B, and and 2 OF/1B/3B, all HS guys.

I'm not sure how excited to be about this draft because, I don't know anything about any of these players. Although I didn't know much about any of last years picks, I now have come to like them alot. From what I've heard about Mier is more glove than bat but, I did hear a young Nomar comp. Hopefully the bat is eventually above average.
