MLB Mock Draft

As promised, here is my first and only crack at predicting Major League Baseball’s First Year Player Draft on Tuesday.  I’m going to try the first 32 picks and probably won’t get any of them right.  Most of my information is going to come from ESPN.com.

27. Seattle Mariners – Drew Storen – RHP – Stanford

28. Boston Red Sox – AJ Pollock- OF – Notre Dame

29. New York Yankees – Max Stassi – C – Yuba City HS, CA

30. Tampa Bay Rays – Tim Wheeler – OF – Sacramento St.

31. Chicago Cubs – Jiovanni Mier- SS – Bonita HS, CA

32. Colorado Rockies – Wil Myers – C/3B – Wesleyan Christian Academy HS, NC

So there you go.  Will it go down like this? No.  Probably not.  But hey, it will be fun to see just how far off I am.  I had intended to justify all of my picks, but then I realized that I was tired.  Plus, after the first 15 or so picks, I was kind of clueless.  Let me know what you think in the comments.
