MLB Draft links!

  • Mutigers.com: Two Tigers taken in First Round of MLB Draft
  • The Missourian: Missouri pitchers selected in first round of MLB Draft
  • Post-Dispatch: MU, Westminster pitchers go to American League
  • KC Star: Royals use first draft pick to select former MU pitcher
  • Royals Review: Royals Draft - Day 1 Recap
    The Royals took Aaron Crow at #12 overall. He was ranked #7 by both Baseball America and Baseball Prospectus. I've never been a huge Aaron Crow guy--so I'm a little lukewarm on this pick. I had him ranked #8--so I don't think he's a dud--I just had Green ranked a little higher. But a lot of fans really like it. He's got a very good fastball--with good velocity and excellent movement. His slider is supposed to be his best pitch--but hasn't been quite as good in his limited time in the Independent League. He made up for that showing a vastly improved changeup.
  • Twinkie Town: Round One: Minnesota Twins Select Kyle Gibson (a very nice summary of scouting reports)

The Missourian has a nice piece on "the man behind the draft picks," my old MBA school classmate Tony Vitello.

Speaking of drafts...the NBA draft is approaching.  The Post-Dispatch and Trib have the latest on DeMarre Carroll's health status (read: blown out of proportion), while the KC Star takes a look at the eligibility status of one of the hoped-for Carroll/Lyons replacements, Keith Dewitt.

To football recruiting, where...well...I'm feeling pretty good about Mizzou's chances with Cameron Coffman in 2011.

Coffman said he took one important fact away from the camp-record attendance in Kansas City. "It shows Missouri's program has arrived, and they'll be here to stay," he explained. "It's real exciting, and they deserve it."

With the Outdoor Track & Field championships looming, The Trib checks in on Chris Rohr, Mizzou's best ever hammer thrower.

To non-Mizzou links...Dave Matter shares his take on what almost look like the intentional secondary violations of Lane Kiffin, and via EDSBS...god bless Barry Switzer...
