There wasn't one of these, so I figured I'd make one. Today is the First Round of the First Year Player Draft, it's being televised on MLBNetwork. Will Gavin Cecchini fall to the Sox? Would you want him if he did? What players would you like the Sox to pick up this year? Who do you see having the best pro career in this draft.
Um, I need a few more words to make this a fanpost.

1. Houston Astros: SS Carlos Correa, Puerto Rico Baseball Academy
