Draft daze, again
Who are the Rays going to take with the first pick in next week's draft? Even the experts don't agree.
ESPN.com's Keith Law has just posted his projections for next week's draft and he has the Rays taking FSU's Buster Posey:
"The Rays are down to Posey and Tim Beckham, equally strong choices. Posey probably will cost them more but reach the majors faster, while Beckham is the better long-term prospect.''
Baseball America has updated its rankings and now has Beckham, the Griffin (Ga.) High shortstop, ranked No. 1.
"As the draft got closer, Beckham got better, and the buzz about him going No. 1 to the Rays continues to grow."
