Draft Day II thoughts

If LSU had to have a major league baseball team select Zack Von Rosenberg in the draft, then the Tigers got the perfect team (at least for them) to do the picking.

Von Rosenberg went to the Pittsburgh Pirates in the sixth round. That's the same Pirates team that traded its best player, Nate McLouth, to Atlanta recently for prospects in a deal widely panned by Pirates players as being about the money.

So you can't really expect the Pirates to make Von Rosenberg an overwhelming offer. You can read what the Pirates have to say about Von Rosenberg here.

As for Brody Colvin, he went in the seventh round to the Phillies. The Phillies have more money than the Pirates. But if you're Colvin, you can be a first-round pick if you go back to school. Still, it will depend on what the offer is. Sometimes the MLB clubs pay more than you think.

LSU will always lose some talent to the MLB draft, whether out of H.S. or before they graduate from LSU. We can only hope that some, like Jared Mitchell and Louis Coleman, will shun the draft initially for a higher round pick in the future.
