If not, I hope Marcus Stroman is around at 20. He has the stuff of a top 5 pick, and the body of a day 2 pick. We Giants fans have seen how much prototypical matters.

Honestly not enamored by the rest of the prep arms around our pick, Eflin might be the only one I'm alright with.

Any vids on him?
What I like about the NFL draft... pretty much every player has a decent high light video.
Baseball... not so much.
JT SNOW reppin'..

ready to pitch in the bigs in a relief role as soon as the end of this year by most accounts.

tons of life on his fastball and a great plus slider. hes a little stocky guy though. its really a mystery where he'll go. depends on whether people think he can be a rotation guy, or needs to come out of the pen.



SHOCKER!!!! Correa #1

He may be the best player in the entire draft, great pick by Houston imo.
Whoa, totally crazy.

No one predicted that one, but I don't think anyone would say it was unwarranted. although he may need to move to 3B if he fills out.

He's extremely athletic, I think he could stay there.

I've read that he's pretty average athletically actually. In fact its his only tool thats iffy. I don't think speed is necessary to field your position well, but he's already 6'4 190 and only 17
Zunino has such a great power stroke. Ridiculous.
