Please use this thread to share your thoughts, links, stories, pictures and anything else on the Brewers' picks on draft day from rounds 1 through 5. Please do not start separate threads to discuss the individual picks.

Please use the in-draft thread to talk about the picks, similar to a game thread.

What positions do you guys think McKay and Greene play?.. I think McKay plays first and Greene pitches

I'd have both pitch.

Cards' fans wear jorts.

Seems like MLB dropped the ball on the simulcast. I guess I'll have to follow the draft through here and Twitter.

Royce Lewis is officially the #1 pick in this year's MLB Draft. WHO could have possibly seen that coming two weeks ago? [wink] [smile]

JBB or Beck and I'm happy, someone higher rated falls and I'm ecstatic. If we cut a deal with Peterson/Rogers I'm cool with that too.

It seems like MLB.com gets smashed this time every year and it drops. It's the only way I follow the draft. Seems to be back up now.

At least from what I can see, nothing's updating on MLB.com. The tracker isn't working and neither is the stream. Oh well, hopefully it gets fixed soon.

Edit: Apparently it's just Chrome. Changed browsers and it worked.

Hunter Greene goes #2. I hate to see him down the road facing Milwaukee.

Hard not to root for him though. Terrific kid.

"Dustin Pedroia doesn't have the strength or bat speed to hit major-league pitching consistently, and he has no power......He probably has a future as a backup infielder if he can stop rolling over to third base and shortstop." Keith Law, 2006

Yep. I loved the smile on his face when he put on the jersey. Just looked thrilled/overwhelmed/happy.

Sounds like Gore is 3 and McKay is 4... Rays gotta be in heaven

Saw that Jim Callis reported that Brendan McKay turned down an offer from the Twins to go 1.1. Curious to compare what type of offer he turned down versus what he is going to get paid when he gets drafted.

Rays take McKay as a 1B. Not sure I like that for them but okay.

I'm guessing it was $6M or so. I bet that's what Lewis signs for. Maybe $6.5M.

If McKay is a tough sign... could he slip?

EDIT: Guess he didn't.

AL team is good. He can DH and pitch. Assuming he's allowed to do that.

Question: can you DH someone else in your lineup? Example, if McKay is the pitcher, could they DH a light hitting SS? I don't think so - but I thought someone might know.
