At that point, you stash who you want. (Mauricio Rubio)
|2014-07-03 19:00:00 (link to chat)||I just moved a couple prospects in trades in a league where 300+ prospects are owned. Which of these 2013 draft picks may be worth rostering? Jordan Paroubeck, Riley Unroe, Dom Nunez, Thomas Milone, Nick Longhi, Cody Bellinger, Dillon Overton, Casey Meisner, Hunter Green, and Chris Kohler?|
(username49 from Ohio)
|Milone is the guy that jumps out at me. He's super raw and so very far away but he is the guy that jumped from this list. (Mauricio Rubio)|

As an A's fan, I'm happily shocked that they were able to sign their top 15 picks. Would have loved to see them land Iolana Akau, the Hawaiian catcher, but I don't think anyone expected the A's to sign all four of Dillon Overton, Chris Kohler, Bobby Wahl and Dustin Driver.
Are you surprised they all signed? With all of them in the fold, do you think the A's draft cracked the top 10?
(Ron from Washington, D.C.)
|Good news, Akau actually was signed! And I agree, the Athletics did a really impressive job. They earned additional flexibility due to Overton's underslot signing (though that comes with the price of Tommy John surgery). Lots of upside arms, a really nice bat in first rounder McKinney, and I liked grabbing Edwin Diaz in the early teens. Pinder/Healy is a solid corner infield tandem early on, as well. In a hit-and-miss class, Oakland seemed to pack in a whole lot of highly interesting acquisitions. That's a great accomplishment. (Nick Faleris on Draft Signing Day)|
