ML News: First-Year Player Draft
Tuesday, June 30th, 2009
Philadelphia, New York, Pittsburgh, Toronto and Cleveland have the opportunity to really make some organization-altering changes today. Their GMs have been huddled around the conference room all night, playing over scenarios with the scouting staff, arguing out the merits of every possible scenario they can fathom. Who they pick might set their clubs up for ten years of quality baseball or it might mean ten years of languishing as an also-ran. BNN experts have concluded that these ten young men should be picked at the top of the draft:


1. Tillie Shafer, 20 year-old 3B out of college.
2. Ping Bodie, 21 year-old CF out of college.
3. Stephen Strasburg, 20 year-old RHP out of college.
4. Nolan Arenado, 18 year-old 3B out of high-school.
5. Tillie Walker, 21 year-old LF out of college.
6. Cy Williams, 21 year-old CF out of college.
7. Al Wickland, 21 year-old RF out of college.
8. Paul Goldschmidt, 21 year-old 1B out of college.
