Who am I kidding? I don’t know enough about all these college and high school kids to do a real analysis. Besides, I’m not supposed to be within 200 feet of a school. . . . or a Chuck E. Cheese, so scouting would be impossible. But I do know that Keith Law is qualified to give some analysis, and as a Cardinals’ fan I like what he has to say:
- On Cardinals’ first round pick (25 overall), Zack Cox: “Cox to STL, pick of the night so far.”
- On Cubs’ first round pick (16 overall), Hayden Simpson: “I haven’t heard anyone mention Simpson as a potential first rounder this entire spring. One club I know had him in the 4th-5th rounds, and I can’t imagine he wouldn’t have made it to day two had the Cubs not taken him. He’s 90-92 with a decent curve and average or better command and control.”
