Gonna be interesting to see who they take and follow the two of them as they rise to the majors.

Almost seems like one of those can't eff it up scenarios. Nice position to be in.

Given that the Tigers have the 3rd pick, I'm sure Dave Littlefield is pushing them to find the next Daniel Moskos.

Thanks for sharing. What a great predicament to be in. Hopefully the Pirates scouts are all over this.

Watched Leiter's game against LSU and had some ... concerns. He sprayed the fastball all over the place, fell behind a lot, and benefited from very mediocre college hitters swinging at anything remotely close. Also hung a couple of curves that the hitters let go by.

He was dealing at 94-95 mph most of the game. Very possibly an "off" game for him, I get it, but he reminded me very, very much of Mitch Keller, with a bit less velocity.
