Shocker of shockers, another college pitcher and a college hitter. It's like we're seeing a trend or something!

Phillies 2014 4th -5th Round Pick Profiles

17

A Second Round talent who fell after a DUI arrest. A 5th round masher. Both College Juniors, in what is shaping up to be the most low risk draft in recent memory.

17

It's very unlikely this mock ends up being right, but it's still an opportunity to look more at team strategies and tendencies.

A Draft Rant

18

That is, a rant about the MLB Draft, not an unfinished rant. Though you could argue for that option too, I suppose.

Phillies 2014 Draft Preview - More 1st Rounders

14

This draft is so deep I could profile another 10 guys and still end up not getting the guy the Phillies take #7. In lieu of writing 20 more profiles, here's a best guess at 4 more possible guys the...

Phillies 2014 Draft Preview - Kyle Freeland, LHP

16

The Phillies took the College Lefty out of High School as a possible overslot guy 3 years ago. With Hoffman out and the draft shifting, it's looking quite possible the Phillies may go this route...

Phillies 2014 Draft Preview - Touki Toussaint, RHP

17

There's no bigger risk/reward player in this draft. Touki has a pretty elite arm, but can he ever be more than a thrower?

Froback Friday - The 1998 Draft

17

For anyone over 30 I don't need to describe how awful the Phillies were in the late 90's and how badly they needed a good draft.

Phillies 2014 Draft Preview - Bradley Zimmer, OF

5

The story of this draft is dominant Pitchers and College hitters who aren't hitting much. Zimmer is different, he's a College hitter who's unexpectedly hitting quite a bit.

2014 Phillies Draft Preview - Grant Holmes, RHP

12

Holmes is virtually a finished prospect meaning a team that takes him could be calling him up within as little as 2 years. But you'd be sacrificing the higher ceilings of other available guys.

Phillies 2014 Draft Preview - Tyler Kolek, RHP

13

Tyler Kolek is a very large teen with a very big Fastball. He also has some good pitchability. He's one of a half dozen guys who could conceivably go Top 3, but with a draft this deep, he could...

Phillies 2014 Draft Preview - Braxton Davidson, 1B

10

Davidson has the best in game power in the 2014 Draft. He could be a true middle of the order impact bat.

Do you love insane power? Guys knocking the cover off the ball? How do you feel about Strikeouts?
