Peter Gammons: Memorial Day MLB Draft Notes

Alex Jackson seems to be getting some pre-draft helium.

“Many of the Astros people believe that picking a pitcher at the top is a gamble because of the historical predictability of pitchers,” says another club official friendly with the Houston front office. Last year, if they hadn’t been able to do a deal with (Stanford pitcher) Mark Appel, (North Carolina third baseman) Colin Moran was in their mix. I think it’s certain that Alex Jackson is a name they are looking at closely.”

If this were to happen, the Cubs would be ecstatic. In a "three player draft", for the #1 pick to NOT be one of those three, the team picking fourth just won the lotto.
