This spot is where it gets much murkier, you've got issues like signability/saving money for a later pick coming into play.

If you believe, "they", the next two picks should be either combination of Ray and Rutherford, but there are a number of high school pitchers who could slide in here as well.

San Diego's farm system needs a lot of love, they blew it out trying to, "win now", and that went nowhere. With that in mind, even though they have a number of early picks this year, I think they'll stick to their board, rather than playing games with money in this spot.

I'll say San Diego takes Corey Ray.

San Diego takes Blake Rutherford.

I cast the swing vote! I'm like the Vice President casting the tie breaker in the senate. Not that they ever pass anything.

With the 8th pick in the draft, San Diego takes California native Blake Rutherford, OF, from Chaminade College Prep in Simi Valley.

This was our first really contested pick. Here's the breakdown:

Rutherford - 4
Ray and Garrett - 3 each
Kirilloff and Collins - 1 each

The Detroit Tigers on the clock.

We had 12 voters in the last round, so please keep it up if you can as a few people are leaving us (likely due to the fact they haven't researched this many players).

The Tigers select Dakota Hudson, RHP, Mississippi State University (Starkville, MS) @ 1.9

8 of 12 pitchers the Tigers have selected in the 1st round since 2000 have come from the college ranks and they get the 2nd best in the draft here. Also, probably some ulterior motive of Corey Ray to the hometown Sox makes sense @ 1.10

He's not dropping any further. The Detroit Tigers select Corey Ray.

Considered by a few to be best player now in the draft. The Tigers are very grateful to get a college bat so full on tools. With hope of quick arrival they'll likely advance Ray and be the first in this draft class to reach the Majors. Detroit with their owner have been in win now mode for quite awhile and picking who can advance the quickest suits that.

This is the really interesting spot in the top ten.

Detroit has been heavily linked to pitching leading up to this draft, but this is exactly the scenario they will face - whether it's Perez, Ray or Rutherford, somebody who thought they'd be picked by now will be sitting there, and it may indeed be a young hitter.

I like Matt Manning here, but he's pushing for big money. I like Dakota Hudson, he's the, "safe pick" in this spot. Ian Anderson, Forrest Whitley, Braxton Garrett, Jordan Sheffield, Cal Quantrill ... any one of them could be the next Tiger.

I'm just throwing a dart on this one, but I'll say Detroit takes Matt Manning.

Don't think he falls further than this.

I think Matt Manning ends up going to San Diego at one of their two picks in the mid-20's for a significantly overslot deal.

I'll go with Braxton Garrett for the Tigers here.

Corey Ray is my pick.

Second night in a row I broke a tie. I feel powerful.

I think the Tigers would be thrilled with Ray. They have an old and very unathletic team. They have a couple of interesting young arms in Fulmer and Norris. Plus the HS player they drafted last year - a pitcher - is doing well in A ball. Their hitting prospects are almost nonexistent. They need a guy like Ray so bad. It also helps that he's a college bat, so he'll (hopefully) move faster than some of the HS players.

A really athletic, impact position player is perfect for the team.

The Tigers select Corey Ray, OF, from Louisville with the 9th selection.

The pick was really close:

Ray - 4
Hudson - 3
Garrett - 3
Manning - 2

The Chicago White Sox are on the clock.

One last round to pick. Thanks to so many for sticking around and participating. I've enjoyed doing this, and learned a ton about all the top players.
