I agree with all of that. It's one of those things where without getting to see the players personally, you have to judge them based off what you read/hear and how their profile fits with what you value in a baseball player (similar to how I used to criticize Joe Jordan for falling in love with the 4th OF profile haha).

 

My initial post was probably too much hyperbole, but I do think that he profiles as the type of guy that could really blossom into a great player with proper instruction. Not to say he isn't getting proper instruction at Stanford, just that the buzz is that Stanford doesn't do any hitters a great service. Obviously that falls into the blanket statements point you made so it's tough (without seeing him personally) to decide, you know?

 

Sure. It's been tough on pro evaluators to make up their mind on Wilson based on limited spring looks and uncertainty as to how his injury has affected him. So I fully get uncertainty from folks that haven't had the opportunity to see him.  Scouting stat lines in college is dangerous without context, but just looking at his pure lines he has made improvements over the past two years. I think, given other likely options, he's a back-end of the 1st Round/Supp-1st guy for me, but I could be talked into buying into him in the teens.

Marco Gonzales could be a solid choice for pick no. 22 (Jon Mayo recently had him to the O's in a mock draft) although I'd rather see them go for someone with higher upside with the first pick. http://minorioles.co...marco-gonzales/

That hurts since I was begging the team to take Wahl in the mid-rounds a couple years ago out of HS.

I mean he wasn't asking for TONS of money. Most teams thought he was a little bit of a project though. He really broke out as a RP in the Cape and then had a good run at Ole Miss. It's pretty much exactly the path you want to take if you are a HS pitcher with a scholly and not drafted real high in June.

 

I wanted him because he was local, I had seen him a couple times in HS, and I had some ins because he was a Baseball Factory product, and I have some connections there. CLE didn't take him til the 39th rd, which is why they couldn't get him signed. Miss was just a better deal at the time, but had the O's (his favorite team) popped him maybe in the 10-12 range, they may have been able to get him. Jimmy Reed from MD is a guy I wanted to take in that same range last year, the Yanks took him late but didn't sign him, and Jimmy was 2nd team all-ACC this year (he's got nasty stuff, he's a LHP but he's small so you know how that goes.)

Good article on Wilson from Eno Sarris at Fangraphs.

 

I still want him at 22.

What are the chances they get two high impact guys with their first two picks? I'm talking #2/#3 starters or potential everyday players?

Not terrible but not great. Once you hit mid to latw first round the "sure things" are gone. Things have to develop right with every prospect but even more once you get into the 2nd round on. Good players available but this isn't the nfl draft so I wouldn't go expecting things out of these guys.

So we're looking at most likely a college pitcher who may be a 2 or 3 but likely a 4 or 5 or a toolsy high school player? I don't really know anything about the draft other than the first round 10 or so picks for the last few years.

Depends on who drops from the first. Really great prospects are there to be had for good drafting teams through the 3rd...but some will really take some work. Not many guys will be instant help. More likely that you follow them in a year or two and see how they are shaping up. Lots more projects in the mlb draft than in other sports.

Just me, but I'd rather see Hart taken with the O's compensation pick and while his stock has risen I don't think it's a stretch to say he's probably available at pick 37

I kind of agree here. Wouldn't mind seeing the O's go Manaea @ 22 and Hart @ 37.
