john sickels held his 2d ann'l mock amateur draft day before yesterday at Minor League Ball. mizzou pitcher max scherzer and missouri state pitcher brett sinkbell both went in the 1st round -- scherzer to the rangers with the 12th pick, and sinkbell to the twins with pick no. 20. the cardinals' mock draft picks were as follows:
the real draft gets underway today. once again st louis has a nice package of early picks -- 6 in the first 3 rounds. last year's draft is shaping up pretty nicely -- rasmus, stavinoha, mccormick, bryan anderson, and jaime garcia all show a lot of promise, and nick webber and eric haberer are holding their own in high a ball.
you can follow the draft live at mlb.com; here's a st louis draft preview. i'm hoping that, collectively, we can maintain a running list of the cardinals' draft picks in this thread -- and, for the matter, any other teams' picks that are of interest.
