Shane Baz is my #1. He hasn't been linked to Brewers like Rogers and Hall have but think he could be very special pitcher. Think his ceiling tops all but Green's for high school are. Hall and Rogers are lefties and that is nice but fingers crossed.

I don't buy the tough sign. He says anything different, he loses leverage. Most high school kids say that but when you have 2 million dollars sitting there for you and you are smart enough to know the risk 3 years of college wear and tear on the arm could do....hard to turn down.

Ramos at 34 would be fine if he's sandwiched between Baz or Rogers or Hall on one end and Seth Romero or Tristan Beck on the other end.

David Petersen has nice peripherals. Very few walks. I still wouldn't take him in the top ten. The analytics folks may love him but he would not be my answer in the top ten.

I wonder how many of these mock drafts predict an OF for the Brewers because they're thinking, "Well they took an outfielder for the two previous drafts, so therefore they must REALLY love outfielders!"

Most.

The Brewers picks pretty much make me want to puke. Here are my thoughts:

1. Hiura - I know many are high on his hit tool. I don't see it. To me, his ceiling is an MLB average second baseman. I would compare him to Rob Refsnyder or Kolton Wong. Decent player but I don't see All-Star potential. I agree with those who see him moving through the system fast and I would have liked him at pick #20+. However, I dont like him in the top 10.

2. Lutz - He looks like a football player. I might even compare his body type to Mike Trout, but that is where the comparison to Trout ends. He doesn't have anythwere near the athleticism of Trout. Moreover, I believe his swing is a mess and needs completely reworked.

3. Lemons - I actually don't hate this pick. However, my big question is whether his recent velocity tick from 91 to 97 is for real. My big concern is that he upped his velocity without adding much weight. Either way, he is likely 5 years from the bigs. Lots of time to add weight and hammer out the delivery.

I hope I'm proven very wrong about Hiura and Lutz. However, I feel the same as I did in 2011 and 2012 with Gray and Gallo, respectively. The Astros got a damn good pitcher at 15. The Pirates and Marlins also did very well with Baz and Rogers at 12 and 13.

I'll lock this thread in favor of our other draft discussion threads now that the draft has started.
