Draft questions

Postby ClevBuck » Sat Apr 09, 2011 9:49 pm

Is there any signs who the indians like so far? The college season is pretty well underway.

Could this be the year the indians take a prep arm at 8? I would love to add Norris or Bundy to our system.

Any chance we take Purke is he's there since his stock seems to be falling because of his mechanics

What about Travis Harrison and give us a young power hitting OF or Bubba Starling ?

Still entirely way too early to speculate. It's only the beginning of April with the draft being in June.

The college season is about 1/3 if not more completed already that's not to early not ben close

On baseball its way too early at this point last year Raundo was considered the number 2 pick and he ended up in the second. When we get to may you might hear more, but the major rumor I recall hearing in the last week of last year was the Indians were high on Grandal and would not be drafting Pomeraz, so not really much can be gained based on rumors

By now the Indians should have narrowed their list down. My guess is in the first round they will still go safe with college guys unless a HS has just blown their doors off. I just think they want to invest first round money on guys with the best chance of making it to the show. Last year did prove they would be willing to spend $$$ on HS kids but after the 1st round.

I don't see why the indians shouldn't take a chance with a prep arm in the 1st, sure if he bust it could hurt but preps are very good this year at the top especially pitchers and our last 2 overall drafts have been great I don't think 1 pick could break our strong farm system why not take a chance

Personally, I'd draft a first baseman... but, that's just me. Not saying in the first round, but within the first few.

I agree with the theory. The Braves often go the prep route early in the draft and it has paid off to a degree. I was just saying what I thought the Tribe would do.

It is just a deep draft in all regards, the Indians will follow their board and it has worked the past few years.
