Picking a pitching prospect is no sure bet. Yet that’s exactly what the Royals plan to do with the first pick of the draft. Rumor is that Ballard liked consensus No. 1 pick Andrew Miller from North Carolina, but that the staff demurred in favor of Houston’s Brad Lincoln. Another possibility would be Luke Hockevar which is surprising as his agent (the (in)famous Scott Borras) in well known for getting top dollar for his clients. The Royals are not known as the sort of franchise that pays top dollar for anything.
At any rate, Poz talks about the diemma the Royals face. It looks like he’s not the only one losing hair thanks to the Royals
