    That has to be intimidating as fuck going up to the plate to face him.

    Twins leaning towards taking a college player 1st over Hunter Green. Their say Brendan Mckay. Is this a good move.

    Personally, I don't like the move, simply because McKay's two-way talents realistically don't boost his overall value. You've got people who feel he's a pitcher moving forward, but in this case is he even better than Kyle Wright from Vanderbilt? I don't think so, and in fact most people will probably tell you that they like Wright better. Then you've got people who feel his future is at 1B, but again even though he projects well here, you're now talking about drafting a 1B #1 overall...and how much better (if at all) is he than someone like Pavin Smith in this outcome?

    With Greene you are at least getting the highest upside player in the draft, even though the risk is obviously higher. With McKay I just see too much of a chance wherein you make him a pitcher and yet Kyle Wright or someone else becomes better, or you make him a hitter and he simply only becomes "good" because the offensive expectation for 1B is so high.

    He passes the eye test for me. Nice smooth, simple delivery (although it looks like he's a little inconsistent with his landing foot). Colour me intrigued.

    Better be pretty sure about the bat to take a 1B in that spot

    He's pretty intriguing. The power is starting to show up this year; .279 ISO + 8 bombs. I'd be happy with Seth Romero + Evan White

    From all the reports (I have never seen him play) his defense at 1B is great. Could likely be moved back and forth from 1B-OF to see what he brings. MLB's report:
    Run: 60 | Arm: 55 | Field: 70
    Whichever team drafts White will have to decide whether to deploy him as a potential Gold Glove first baseman or to try him in the outfield.
