Bucs have selected 5 pitchers through round 8. Round 8 selection, Bill Cain is intriguing. He is one of the guys who is committed to Texas and the Bucs will have to amp up the bonus to sign him. He i s lefty that throws 93-94 and is a two way player.

I think four of them are HS pitchers too.

The Cain pick is very interesting. Could be one of those players they were saving the budget for.

Apparently some are thinking this is a good strategy:

Johnathon Mayo from MLB.com via Twitter: "Hate to keep tooting the Pirates #mlbdraft horn, but Den Dekker was supposed to go along time ago. They are clearly executing their plan."

He also says: "Wondering what the Pirates were doing when taking Sanchez in #mlbdraft? Look at all the HS pitching they're going after; aggressive so far."

I'm not saying I'm on board but they have a strategy and they are executing it.

Dripping Springs ,TX? Sounds downright impotent. Didn't Roaring Springs, TX have any good prospects?
