I'm betting they go with a safe bat option for the first and a high risk-high reward pitcher (like a Cease type) for their second pick.

One pitcher I hope we jump on should he fall to us is Tanner Houck out of Missouri. His stock has fallen quite a bit recently, and he seems like the sort of guy who could advance quickly given the right environment. John Arguello mentioned him today over at Cubs Den, and I was surprised that he believed this kid might still be around at the tail end of the 1st round. A couple of years ago he would have been a top 10 pick.

I don't know how much evaluators believe in the bat, but I've already fallen in love with Nick Allen's glove just from some YouTube videos. That guy already looks like an MLB shortstop.

He seems to be the most frequently mocked guy to the Cubs.

Better than watching the fucking Cubs right now.  I didn't watch more than an inning of the Rockies series.

I'm still hoping the FO snags Tanner Houck with one of our 1st round picks. I think he could advance quickly through the system.

There are a few intriguing names still on the board.

Jeren Kendall, whom the Dodgers just selected, was another bat that the Cubs were connected to.

Strikes out a lot.  Would be right up our alley.
