First Round Complete

The first round is complete and I believe most of Cardinal Nations has let out a big, “Huh?” .  Pete Kozma came out of nowhere, but he is now a Cardinal, so let’s wait and see.  He seems like a fundamentally sound player who will provide good defense in the middle infield and a player who hit for average at the top of the lineup.  He will probably never be an All-Star, but I think he could be a serviceable everyday player.  I believe the Cardinals made this pick because Lunhow and the boys believe they can get him signed quickly.

Derrick Goold has info on why the Cardinals selected Kozma.  Interesting the Cards front office thought of Porcello as unsignable.

The Tigers get Rich Porcello, the top prep pitcher in the draft.  Last year they get Andrew Miller and this year Porcello.  The pitching rich gets richer.
