Draft Day Discussion

The draft is going to happen today and the Padres have several picks. I don't claim to follow the draft very closely, but I'm more than willing to hear all about guys you think will be getting firesold away from the Padres in 8 years, so consider this an Open Thread.

Paul DePodesta has a post up about draft strategy and the thought of getting players who will be big leaguers as opposed to "high ceiling" guys. It's essentially one of the Moneyball themes to not become totally enamored with guys that look good in baseball pants and instead look for MLB caliber guys.

At this point, I'll settle for either one. If we're gonna field a sub .400 winning percentage, at least give me some eye candy. ROWR!
