OTWT MLB Draft notebook

The first round of the MLB Draft was full of surprises and here is how OTWT say it.
• Surprised the Astros went with Correa. It's clear they went with the player with the largest upside. Stud middle infielders are hard to find.
• Mark Appel and Gerrit Cole that is not going to be a bad one two punch on the mound for the Pirates.
• MLB Network needs to stop putting Harold Reynolds on their draft coverage he adds nothing to the show.I hate the fact that he loves every pick.
• Love the fact that Courtney Hawkins did a back flip during the draft. Nice touch.
• Lucas Giolito is your typical Nationals pick high ceiling type player. Mike Rizzo is not scared of taking chances on players with issues. See Matt Purke.
• Nats last four first rounders: Strasburg, Harper, Rendon and Giolito. Not bad at all.
• Love when Gammons talks draft. Makes my day.
