    People are calling the Oregon St catcher (not gonna try and spell his name) the best prospect since Harper (overrated, btw)

    Very excited for the yearly installment of "comparing a mid-first round pick that ultimately won't make it past Double-A to a current or future HOF'er."

    Draft broadcast primer for those new to the event:

    - Harold Reynolds will believe every SS drafted can stay at SS, and will especially like every black player drafted
    - Jonathan Mayo will roll his eyes and appear to want to punch Harold in the face at least 10 times
    - Greg Amsinger will be way too excited about pretty much everything to the point of it being awkward
    - Baseball draft people on Twitter will be annoyed by Harold and Dan O'Dowd (or John Hart) saying someone has elite tools and/or projecting them to HOFers
    - The broadcast will go much slower than it should because of all the reasons mentioned here, causing the first round to take longer than the NBA draft for reasons no one will be able to explain

    I haven't hated a pick since Corey Ray and with the team picking as late as it is I probably won't have anything negative to say about this pick.

    Abrams dropping that far, including past his hometown team, is quite interesting.

    The Cubs always seems to go off the radar when it comes to these later 1st round selections. I've seen Misner, Mathew Lugo, Kode Hoese mentioned a bit... we shall see
