Friday Night Starters – 2010 College Baseball Week Two

I’m going to go through and organize this better later this afternoon, but I figure time sensitive material like this should go up as quickly as possible. That’s why you get a great big list of college pitchers to start your Monday morning. Potential first rounders are in bold. Quick notes were added for some players who aren’t as well known.

    How about Kyle Blair this past Sunday? He dominated the first five innings of that game. All three of his runs he gave up in his final inning. He really impressed me despite the troublesome inning and no-decision.

    Deck McGuire is all-square through two starts. That is, he is about what we all hoped and expected–a top 10 guy, thus far.

    Drew Pomeranz’ start can’t be ignored. He’s one of those guys I’m not high on–a lefty with two pitches? Command? Injury risk? As he performs this well he’ll end up doing one of two things for me 1. Prove me wrong, force me to want him on my team 2. Improve his draft stock so my team can’t take him. Good both ways.

    I estimate Justin Grimm is a late first round to second round talent, who helped his first round hopes with this start?

    All of these 2011 pitchers are really making me salivate for next years’ draft. (Cole, Gray, Meyers, Hultzen, Jungmann and Purke)
