Draft Round Up

The first two picks from the draft preview were right on, but here is how the rest of the draft shaped up.

1. Washington Nationals
RHP: Stephen Strasburg- San Diego State

2. Seattle Mariners
1B/OF: Dustin Ackley- UNC

3. San Diego Padres
OF: Donovan Tate- Cartersville HS

Tate has five-tool potential. He has decent speed, a good arm, and average power. Fielding, he reads the ball well. The question is whether he can stay consistent.

4. Pittsburgh Pirates
C: Tony Sanchez- Boston College

Sanchez went higher than expected. He is a solid defensive catcher with good catch-and-throw skills. Has little power.

5. Baltimore Orioles
RHP: Matt Hobgood- Norco HS

He has good mechanics and throws his fastball in the low 90s. His curveball is his best pitch.

6. San Francisco Giants
RHP: Zach Wheeler- East Paudling HS

7. Atlanta Braves
LHP: Mike Minor- Vanderbilt

8. Cincinatti Reds
RHP: Mike Leake- Arizona State

9. Detroit Tigers
RHP: Jacob Turner- Westminster Christian Acadamy

10. Washington Nationals
RHP: Drew Storen- Stanford

Tyler Matzek was drafted by the Colardo Rockies (11th overall). Aaron Crow was drafted by the Kansas City Royals (12th overall. Alex White was drafted by the Cleveland Indians (15th overall).

Call of the Day: Pat Burrell was no stranger to hitting home runs.

"Burrell hits it to deep left center field, and this ball is outta here! Home
run Pat Burrell number eight for Burrell. And the Phillies jump to a 1-0 lead
here in the second."
