    @kileymcd: Just swapped emails w/2 directors in the top 5 picks & advisor of #1 pick candidate. All have no idea what the Astros will do. Crazy quiet.

    Nice info. I'm not surprised that they expect to take more pitchers than hitters in the first 10 rounds. Pitching is the strength of the draft. What I'm wondering is where they are going to get their catcher. They have made it clear they are going to grab one and prep catchers is a strength of the draft.

    Interesting article from BA about how teams used their money last year. Astros took Correa way under slot to clear money while the Jays only played their 5th-10th round picks a combined $31,000! The red Sox and cubs signed kids for $1,000 so they could spend it else where. Don't have to take McGuire at #4 to have money to spend else where. Link below:

    @MikeBerardino: From what sources tell me, it will be a huge upset if the Twins pass on Houston prep RHP Kohl Stewart at No. 4 Twins' draft beliefs, needs can intersect if Kohl Stewart is available - TwinCities.com

    This would make a lot of people happy. Hopefully they can get him at a good price.

    From Peter Gamons:

    Draft is so unpredictable that it appears the ’Stros and Cubs @1-2 are in quandaries, and teams think the Rockies @3 go 1B Dominic Smith.

    Wow Dominic Smith? Really? That seems ridiculous to me but what do I know.

    It is no more ridiculous as us taking McGuire. Most experts have smith higher than McGuire

    I've grown so fond of Stewart that I'd almost be a bit disappointed if we passed on him for Bryant. I know Bryant will be solid, but....

    Also, I doubt this really happens.

    I saw a Mock that went:
    Stewart #1
    Gray #2
    Appel #3
    Bryant to the Twins

    I have to admit as much as I like Bryant and I want them to go after the BPA, I was disappointed. I am hoping for a pitcher...

    I think Bryant and Appel go somewhere in the top three along with another college hitter. Then we take Stewart over Gray, which will displease some on here and make others happy. I'm not sure which camp I fall into.
