by most accounts his talent is deserving of the first overall pick.
As discussed above, Appel and Gray have set themselves apart from the rest of the group. They fall in the middle range of typical No. 1 overall selections.
Rick (Sherbrooke,QC): If illigible in this year draft, where would you have rank Rondon & Beede ?
Jim Callis: I’d put Carlos Rodon No. 3 because his command hasn’t been as sharp as that of Appel and Gray. You could argue those guys in any order, though. Beede would fit in the 6-10 range somewhere.
Why do teams need 4:30 to make a pick? Especially the first team.
Gray may end up signing for a discount with the Adderall thing, so that may be even more incentive for a team to draft him.
Does anyone have an opinion on MLB holding the draft during the College Baseball post season tourney? I know these dates have overlapped for years now, but now that this is a media event, wouldn't it be a tad better to hold this immediately after the CWS in a couple of weeks? Allow some of these college players to attend and even enjoy?
When you've been alive 156 years it's hard to remember the year.
Prevailing sentiment on twitter is that Royals are saving $$ to take an overslot pick at 34. The only question is whether Dozier + overslot player is better than Meadows and slot player.

the main guy is Manaea for the price tag drop.
Smith cited Cano and Teixiera. Will Mets fans forgive him for that?
Not to blow everyones mind, but just because a few publications think one thing about a player doesn't mean an organization thinks the same way. The Royals very well may think Dozier is a ~10 player, and probably a few other teams thought he was at least a teens level talent.

"Memory of a goldfish"?
I'm annoyed by commentary, criticism without insight from people merely because a player is picked in a slot that doesn't align with the internet draft board.
It seems kind of odd to be reading and commenting on this thread then.
It's not entirely where an organization has a player rated, it's where the *other* organizations have the player rated as well.
If the Royals had Dozier rated top-10, and every other organization had him rated in the 50s, then the Royals stood a good chance of getting him at 34 and it would have made sense for them to use the #8 pick to take a player that they also had rated highly but that likely would not have been there at 34.
when the best thing you can say about the guy you take is that he's going to stay at SS, that does not strike me as a great selection.
