Mock Draft

Baseball America has tried to project the entire first round of this year draft. I'm glad it's someone's job to do that. Here's what they have to say about the Brewer's pick at #16:

16. BREWERS. Milwaukee surprised everyone by taking a Boras-advised college senior at No. 7 last year, and Matt LaPorta is working out very well. Going the same route this year could plug some of the leaks in the big league bullpen, as Georgia righty Joshua Fields shouldn't need much minor league seasoning. The Brewers aren't afraid to take a toolsy youngster, so Collier, Connecticut high school outfielder/shortstop Anthony Hewitt and Alabama prep outfielder Destin Hood could go here.

Projected Pick: JOSHUA FIELDS.
Like 99.99% of the rest of the world, I have never heard of any of these players. The Brewers have gotten rather thin at pitching in the minors, so I'd hope they would use some of their higher picks there.
