I suggest everyone keep an eye on Carlos Martinez, Kolten Wong, and Oscar Taveras.

Dylan Bundy for sure. I MIGHT even take Trevor Bauer and Archie Bradley over Cole as well. Hultzen would be a distant 5th out of that draft class for me.

The thing with Hultzen is that he doesnt have the upside of the other 4. As for Bauer there are durability issues that come with being slightly undersized.

But yeah Archie Bradley is the real deal. Probably a smart move by him to choose baseball over football.

I like Cole alot. Been high on him since 08.

Bundy will be the best player from his draft class.

Billy Hamilton has stolen 2 more bases tonight giving him 65 on the season. We aren't even half way through.

Yeah I'd say he has 80 speed.

Off the charts speed, but isn't that refined technique wise in stealing bases. Some concerns with the bat, but has made some mechanical adjustments compared to last year. Absolutely will not stick as SS, might move to 2B, but seems like he might be able to handle CF.

Yup, 2B or CF longterm for Hamilton. And that bat is starting to come around abit.

Those 2 steals gave him 67 in 56 games. Had 103 in 135 games last season. I believe the record is 145 (Vince Coleman in 1983).

Hamilton's bat is really inconsistent. He has very little power. His biggest issue last year was that he K-ed a ton. This year it's better but we will see. He's making better contact and recognizing pitches better.

He needs to keep improving, but if he works out, he could be a great top of the order bat.

Also, Shelby Miller of the Cardinals has been struggling a bit in AAA. I think he'll bounce back though.

First I was thinking a decent comparison would have been Joey Gathwight (sp), the guy who jumped over cars. He also has great speed, but Hamilton is actually hitting at a decent clip. Hes 21, he has time to improve. Let the guy develop until Dusty ruins him, better yet, trade him to any team not run by Dusty Baker and the guy might be the next Vince Coleman.

I would keep him at second, thats just my opinion. Too much value down the road as an infielder.

College Baseball World Series started today. Last year there was couple people on here who watched it.

Bracket 1 - UCLA, Arizona, Florida St, Stony Brook
Bracket 2 - Florida, South Carolina, Arkansas, Kent St

UCLA beat Stony Brook and Arizona beat Florida St. Double elimination rules. Losers (Stony Brook and Florida St) play on Sunday to stay alive.

Kent St v Arkansas and South Carolina v Florida tommorow. Gamecocks v Gators should be a good one.

Gamecocks had their 12th CWS & 22nd NCAA tourney win in a row tonight over #1 seed Florida.

#3-peat

If Gamecocks were to win the whole thing they would become:

9th team to win CWS at least 3 times.
2nd team ever to win 3 in a row.
2nd team ever to appears in 3 consecutive championship series.

Southern Cal own the record for consecutive titles and championship series appearances (5). No other team ever has had more than 2.

#1 Florida eliminated in 2 games. Serious waste of talent. They were probably one the best college teams in the last several year judging on talent alone.

SC's streak comes to an end and they most likely won't be winning a 3rd straight title. No way the college equivalent of the Pittsburgh Pirates offense wins 2 in a row against Arky's pitching, if we can even get by Kent State which I'm not even sure of.

I like Arizona at this point to win it all.

Michael Roth is like the Cliff Lee of college postseason/the CWS. He just recorded his 3rd ever complete game. One of his other CGs was also in a CWS elimination game. He also just destroyed the all-time CWS innings pitched record. Not the best pro prospect but hopefully he does well with the Angels.
