View Full Version : Draft Prospect Update

Baseball America is posting updates of the projected first round for this year's draft.
Arizona Signee Delvin Young is projected to go 3rd, so I don't think he's going to make it to college. That's way too much money to turn down.
"ASU OF" Brian Anderson as a border-line first rounder. Looks like someone isn't doing their homework...doesn't anyone east of the Mississippi realize there are two schools in Arizona, and both can be pretty good at baseball when they try to be?
*sidenote for real dill- don't expect to see my boy Vince Sinisi actually picked that high...he's not putting up the power this year he was projected to. Probably the second or third best hitter on the team.

It is Delmon Young, and as good as Baseball America is at scouting, their attention to detail has always been abysmal.

Yeah, I got Delmon Young crossed with Selvin Young, a football player at Texas.
As another note for Real Dill...I think I'd play Selvin next year over Benson. I know Benson is a god in Texas because of Midland's back-to-back-to-back championships, but he just can't stay healthy, especially 25+ carries a game with Simms gone.

Delvin Young is the #1 pick in the draft easily. That list is brutal. I got to see this kid take BP last summer at a tourney in Dallas and literally the crowd went silent watching him crush the ball. Never seen anything like it. He was hitting line drives 50 feet over the wall to both gaps. Sinisi has good size, but like you said his power numbers are down and he just isn't fast enough for his lack of power. If Selvin Young gets acquitted of these drug charges he picked up a couple weeks ago I see him starting by the third game. The Dodgers are pushing Benson preety hard to quit UT and his last comment about it was "Baseball has always been my true love" so everyone is waiting to hear if he is coming back for the fall semester. Young was dynamite at the spring game. I think 126 yds on 9 carries or around that. We'll see, I think its a situation like Suggs and Jones at Va. Tech last year. With a new QB in, they will be running it down everyones throat (at least I hope)

There is a kid named Wentworth who plays for USC I believe. I saw him when he was at St. Mary's in San Antonio where he was the MVP of the Division 2 World Series as a freshman. He has a very unorthodox windup where he faces home plate the entire time including his balance point (he lifts his leg up straight in front of him towards home plate). Anyhow, I was wondering if he faced Arizona this year or if anybody on here has seen him play. He was 92-94 on the gun as a freshman and I wanted to know how he was progressing in the PAC-10.
