bsaza2358
03-13-2008, 08:55 AM
As stated before, with the first pick in the 2008 prospects draft, the Manchester Fishercats select:

Jay Bruce, CF/RF

Rationale: Bruce is widely considered the best prospect in baseball now. Without many exceptions, he is the #1 prospect on everyone's list. If healthy, his basement projects as a fringe all star. His ceiling is unlimited. He can play CF, but will likely end up in RF long term. You could say he's a no-brainer, but I wouldn't go quite that far.

03-13-2008, 01:29 PM
The Aberdeen Ironbirds are proud to select:

CF/RF Justin Upton (140 ML AB's)

Giantsfan1080
03-13-2008, 02:12 PM
Isn't a prospect someone with no more than 130 AB's?

bsaza2358
03-13-2008, 02:13 PM
Upton isn't on Baseball America's list, so I would say he's no prospect.

Giantsfan1080
03-13-2008, 02:24 PM
Upton isn't on Baseball America's list, so I would say he's no prospect.

Yeah because he's 10 ab's over.

stukarudel
03-13-2008, 02:33 PM
Whoops sorry,

Ok I will take OF Colby Rasmus then.

P-L
03-13-2008, 02:33 PM
Yeah, it is 130 AB's for hitters and 50 IP for pitchers.

P-L
03-13-2008, 02:36 PM
I really didn't want to go pitching with my first pick, but it looks like I have to. The top three guys are real close together, so I'll just take:

SP Clay Buchholz, Red Sox

There were many ways you could have gone with your first pick, but Bucholz wasn't a bad one.

With our 1st pick the Cyclones select:

LHP Clayton Kershaw

http://losangeles.dodgers.mlb.com/images/2006/06/03/osAWtlna.jpg

I did want to start off with a pitcher and I think Kershaw is the perfect fit to lead my rotation. You won't find many lefties with the stuff and command that he has.

Fisch, you should put the draft order and updates in the first post of this thread...it'll make it easier.

With my pick, I'm going to skip a couple pitchers that are "ranked" higher to take this guy, I just like his stuff/attitude/ceiling more.

The Brooklyn Cyclones select:

RHP Rick Porcello

http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2267/1561942340_032328ad9b.jpg

We add another frontline starter at this time in the draft. We now have both a leftie and rightie at the top which will give teams trouble for years to come. We believe pitching wins championships and we now have the 2 frontline guys to accomplish that.

Sorry i didnt really understand the rules...lol

bsaza2358
03-18-2008, 11:07 AM
Okay, let's sandwich this bad boy:

The Manchester Fishercats select:

Nick Adenhart, RHP, Angels: Adenhart has dominated the minors with a repertoire of 3 plus pitches, and he could start in the majors this season with the injuries to the Angels' SP's. He has dominant stuff, gets swings and misses, and mixes his pitches well. He has ace potential for sure.

Matt LaPorta, LF, Brewers: LaPorta is the most MLB-ready power prospect from the 2007 draft. Light tower power and a great eye with patience. He offers cleanup protection for Bruce (hitting at #3), and he will play an acceptable LF. I also retain the right to move him to 1B or DH.

fischbowl
