Wednesday, June 5th, 2013
The Over The Monster League baseball moguls will be maneuvering, conniving and cajoling today to get the pick of the litter in this year's amateur draft. They will be drooling and salivating over the new pups available in the rookie player draft. Seattle, Salem, New York, Boston and Tampa Bay have plenty to bark and yelp about, since they will have the first five picks. In the opinion of most baseball experts, these are the most highly prized players in the 2013 draft:
1. Thomas Ruíz, 17 year-old center fielder out of high-school.
2. Ben Welch, 21 year-old catcher out of college.
3. Kevin Hood, 18 year-old third baseman out of high-school.
