2012 Draft Thread: First Round
Well, here we are. It’s really happening and I’ve barely prepared anything, mostly on purpose.
The word went around last night that the Astros are already setting up a deal with Appel. Edit: That was a lie. From there, everyone has started to conclude that the Twins are going to take Buxton, whether that has any basis in an actual deal or not. As part of the Baseball America dominoes falling, everyone has assumed that the Mariners are going to pick Mike Zunino now, even though if you read the actual article carefully, it’s phrased around speculation. Nevertheless, it’s being treated as fact at the moment. I’m hoping otherwise.
Prepare to FREAK OUT in a logical, well-reasoned, and family-friendly manner.
Edit: That’s C Mike Zunino out of Florida.
