  1. kyle roller is even better than advertised haven't seen anyone get pitched to like he does since bonds. glad to see him in your projections

  2. How about JJ Muse for consideration?

    ReplyDelete
  3. where is Greg Brodzinski? First rounder.

    ReplyDelete
  4. Not a huge Roller fan as he can't hit a curve on the outside half, but he can hit the ball a ton. He's a big dude and will at worst be a minor league slugger.

    I have nothing on Muse.

    Brodzinski looks like a solid hitter likely to head to South Carolina. There is no chance he will be a 1st rounder.

  5. i heard rounds 5-12 for Brodzinski...

  6. Awesome SS from Seattle, can play anywhere and is the firecracker of any team he plays on, 2nd round or better......Ryan Brett

  7. I am curious about Setn Maness,RHP from ECU, he is from my local area, have folowed him since he was a young player. All he does is get batters out and win games, do you havea projection on his draft position?

    ReplyDelete
  8. I saw Maness pitch against Rice this spring. His stuff wasnt overpowering and he telegraphed his curve, but like you said, he got hitters out. Rice hitters chased his fastball just off the plate all day. That showed me that he has good command of his stuff and he could be a good minor league pitcher. He could be a top 10 round kind of guy.

  9. I like Brett and think he could be an amazing college player at Gonzaga. I don't see him going in the top 2 rounds but it could happen. He is a small, extremely fast guy who could be a plus CF or a good SS. I would see him going in the 4th to a team that likes the way he plays the game.

    ReplyDelete
  10. I understand through the local grapevine that Cincinnati thinks highly of Seth and the area scout is high on him. He has always thrown his curve a lot, since that is his out pitch. He is a very efficent pitcher, always going deep into games. My son caught him for a year in high school. I can tell you that he had very few offers out of high school, where he was dominant. He played well in the Cape last year. I watch a lot of HS and college baseball here in NC and SC. I think the team that aquires him will havea future major league pitcher. He is the smart, savy and the ultimate competitor that I have seen in a long time. By the way, you need to consider ranking another Pinecrest player, Dillion Maples as a sure first round pick for 2011. He is upper ninties with a devastating curve ball. I have clocked his fastball consistently over 95 and his curve in the 82-86 range. This is a nice site you have and I know it is a lot of work/fun for you!

    ReplyDelete
  11. Good info on Maples. I have him on the follow list for names for the 2011 and 2012 draft, but I didn't have much info on him.
    Thanks alot. I appreciate the info!

  12. Is Kevin Ziomek really a top 200 prospect? Sure, he is a lanky lefty who has decent numbers and has a decent fastball, but are the numbers from a guy playing for a small public school in Western Massachusetts really comparable to those of pitchers from the rest of the US?

    ReplyDelete
  13. I don't look at HS numbers much. A lanky lefty that can hit 94 is what gets Sale and Pomeranz in the top of the 1st round. Ziomek could be there after a couple years at Vanderbilt. He was a little short of that this spring but it's cold in the North. He hasn't thrown much, so he has a fresh arm and more projection than a Florida or Texas arm.
