    Lewis-Clark is also a baseball power, for what it's worth.

    Sounds more like a SECOND reason to come to Cleveland!

    Amazing the talent a school can build up with very low admission standards and an NAIA-affiliation.

    Phila --

    Ravech has a clue.

    Phillips is a babbling idiot.

    The issue of signability sucks.

    Ben Revere, a Lexington Catholic product, going in the first round to the Twinkies was a bit shocking. There's no way he goes to Georgia now.

    Zeke, Revere is the real deal. He's not going to be replacing Hunter anytime soon, but he's going to be an impact player for them in the future.

    The kid can flat out play. He can pitch, too, but I think that part of his career is over now.

    I don't know, KY.

    Denard Span is supposedly the Twins CF of the future, and they've never been a team to exactly throw a ton of money at a pick.

    As to signability, always remember this: It led the Twins to draft Joe Mauer instead of Mark Prior.

    It's a crapshoot.

    And looking back, it was the right move for the Twins. But try this on for size: Revere NEVER struck out looking in his HS career...

    Tigers select a couple of power arms again in Rick Porcello and Joey Hamilton.

    Three of their top four picks are pitchers.

    Have they forgot about the other positions?
