First big surprise...and then the second

Daniel Schlereth, a LHP pitcher from Arizona to the Diamondbacks at 26. Man, the coach at Cal I talked to raved about this guy but all I have read said Rafael Perez-like guy...and you don't take that guy in the first round of a draft unless you have lots of picks.

BTW, interesting at 25 that Christian Frederich fell to Colorado and they grabbed him when, all along, they had been linked to Jake Odorizzi who wanted $1 million at least, not out of the realm for the 25th overall selection.

BTW2, contrast the 23rd pick, limited Allan Dykstra (a tad less than Cooper) to the 24th pick of ultra-projection Anthony Hewitt. I am glad we didn't take either of those guys.

Carlos Gutierrez, the 82nd best prospect by Baseball America, goes at 27. MLB.com doesn't even have a scouting report for this guy he was drafted so lowly.

I am scared. Shooter Hunt, the command-challenged flamethrower from Tulane is still on the board.
