The news of the day: No one seems to know what the heck is going on.
Keith Law speculates in his final mock that the Cardinals pick will be San Diego lefty Sammy Solis in his latest mock and says the Cardinals are NOT in on Stetson Allie, but maybe AJ Cole. I don’t disagree with Solis being a possible pick for the Cardinals, but not in the first round. Hummel said the Cardinals are looking for lefty pitching, power and speed, and this is what Keith is basing his reasoning on.
Jim Callis’ pick for the Cardinals is Christian Colon, although he speculates they could take any player falling in the draft because of bonus demands, risk, etc. That includes Grandal, who was rumored to have a pre-draft deal with the Royals. Turns out that rumor wasn’t true, although the Royals still are on Grandal.
Happy draft day, everyone. See you all tonight.
