From the same article:
12. Florida Marlins: Jarrod Parker, RHP, Norwell HS (Ind.)
There were plenty of Marlins who witnessed Schmidt's tourney gem last week, and if he were around they would be tempted to add an advanced college arm to join the ones in the organization already. But assuming he's gone, they could go with the top prep arm still on the board in Parker, who has wowed many scouts with his stuff and arm strength, even though he is the classic "undersized right-hander." If they want to go bat, it certainly isn't out of the question for them to go with last week's projection, Jason Heyward.Last week's projection: Heyward
My first chance to hate our pick in front of the TV! Woo!

If Weiters falls to us and we pass on him, I may be hospitalized.

It's WIETERS.

I also think that Mock Draft is going to be wrong. Brackman, LaPorta, and Matt Harvey seem really low to me.

I would also like to see the Fish draft a college bat of some kind.

I doubt we would pass on Wieters.

Whether he falls to 12(which would be nothing but signability) remains to be seen.

I also find it funny how they have Bryan Bullington in that banner, even though he's pretty much been a bust thanks to injuries.

Isn't signability not a factor this year due to the new rules?

All are first overall picks.

What do you mean.

From what I understand, if you can't sign whomever you pick this year, you're guaranteed the same pick next year.

As in same player or just same spot in the draft?

Spot.

But, still, a year of lost talent is a year of lost talent.

Ditto that some teams have no desire to pay well over slot.

I was reading about Mad Max...apparently his mechanics are awful. Like, Mark Prior level awful.

Anyhow, I agree with Swift. I doubt getting the same pick the next year will curtail drafting for signability too much, because they will still wont sign for over slot value the next year either.

depending who you talk to, some suggest Prior had flawless mechanics

Here's the latest draft projections from Baseball America. They are reporting that Andrew Brackman, who was a potential Top 15 pick a few weeks ago, may now fall out of the first round.
