Only one of the eight prognosticators at BA picks the Red Sox to repeat. But Teddy Cahill does it with conviction.

RED SOX defeat the Dodgers in four games

Ouch.

Tim's next pick (30th overall): Adalberto Mondesi.

His next pick (starting in round 3): Kris Davis

In rounds 4 and 5, as he turned the corner again, he took Mike Clevinger and Edwin Diaz (60 and 61 overall).

At the other end, Jeff took Rhys Hoskins and Xander Bogaerts as he turned the corner the second time (45 and 46 overall), then took Eddie Rosario and A.J. Pollock when he turned the corner a third time (75 and 76 overall). 

I should get out last year's Guide and track what teams with the first and last picks in the first round earned through the first ten rounds or so -- though I'm happy to delegate that!

Who was left for McLeod at the end of the 2nd round?

Tim McLeod, blessed with the first pick in the mock draft in this year's Guide, picked Mike Trout.

Jeff Zimmerman, cursed with the last pick, picked Chris Sale.

And then promptly took Jacob deGrom with the first pick in Round 2.

I like that.

Note to self: at the end of the season, find out how many points Tim and Jeff gained in hitting and pitching.

7th most valuable pitcher, both leagues, in 5x5.

2018 Statcast Averages

More than ten mph difference between speed coming in and going out. Combine that with lots of grounders and... voila.
