I really really like Chase Strumpf and Kameron Misner.

Strumpf sounds good to me. A good defender with raking ability and plate discipline. Sounds like Wong.

Misner would be nice too. Local guy. I want the Cardinals to get back to developing good outfielders. Would love to get him, Greene, Bishop, Carroll, or Hampton. Draft seems full of them.

Would love them to grab a few upper 90s fastball pitchers in this draft too.

One thing I always want them to do is draft right handers who hit right handed pitching. I don't care where they are in development process.

Jason Isringhausen will be representing the Cardinals at the Draft.

Mock Draft: Could Bobby Witt Jr. go No. 1?


Quote:
Who will go first in the 2019 MLB Draft? Nearly all scouting directors not picking No. 1 overall believe that Oregon State catcher Adley Rutschman is the obvious best choice for the pick. And most believe he will end up being taken by Baltimore.

But there’s still an alternative narrative: that it’s not a slam dunk, with some thinking Cal first baseman Andrew Vaughn will end up in the top spot. One scouting director even mused that new Orioles general manager Mike Elias could repeat what he did with the Astros in 2012 (when they took Carlos Correa) and take prep shortstop Bobby Witt Jr.

One thing we know for certain is that Elias keeps things close to the vest, so we might not know for sure until Commissioner Rob Manfred announces it on June 3.

There is a general consensus about who the top six, and perhaps even the first seven or eight, names called on Draft night will be, and the top six are all hitters. But the order could go in any number of directions.
