DateQuestionAnswer
2010-06-07 18:30:00 (link to chat)I'm not a fan of the Harvey pick. Has always sounded like a reliever to me. What do you think?
(Jello from NY)
I'm a fan. Only would prefer Chris Sale. Astros go with a complete overdraft by taking Delino DeShields at 8. They fear he wouldn't be there at 19, but that doesn't mean taking him 8 isn't a mistake. San Diego a huge wild card with Cox and Chris Sale on the board. Word is they honed in on Whitson, but they have to be scrambling bigtime. (Kevin Goldstein)
