Only a few comments:

  1. # 16 Drew Holder is out of Dallas Baptist, the same school where Ben Zobrist played.
  2. I hope this Colt does better than the last Colt.  Colt Griffin, a Texas high schooler who threw 100 miles an hour and was taken number nine in the nation by Kansas City in 2001, has become a sort of quick mnemonic for the reasons you don't take a high school pitcher with a high-round pick. Colt Griffin has been a sensational failure; # 18 Colt Adams hopefully will be at least a moderate success.
  3. # 19 Orlando Rosales played with  # 2 RHP Sergio Perez at the Univeristy of Tampa, and makes it no fewer than 10 draftees out of the state of Florida
  4. # 24 Jonathan Wiedenbauer is undoubtedly the son of Tom Wiedenbauer, a longtime pitcher, coach and manager in the Astros minor league system.
  5. # 50 Paul Henley played at Rice with # 9 2B Gregory Buchanan, and you wonder if Lance has any influence on the draft?
