Kansas City GM Allard Baird is quoted as saying on MLB.com,
"I want the best available guy," general manager Allard Baird said. "In this case, it's going to be the best available pitcher."
They are left-hander Andrew Miller of the University of North Carolina, right-hander Brad Lincoln of the University of Houston and right-hander Tim Lincecum of the University of Washington.
Which ever young man gets drafted by the Royals, I am certain that in a matter of weeks, he will meet some misfortune. I'm betting on a dirigble accident. My second favorite is someone contracting one of those diseases that only turn up on "House."
Another possibility is that the pitcher drafted will look at his assembled teammates and just lose the will to live.
