Draft Chat With John Manuel
John Manuel handled draft questions on May 25.
Scouting Reports: Washington
The Evergreen State has some intriguing arms, and players' stock seemed likely to continue to rise and fall right up to the draft.
Scouting Reports: Utah
Scouts were buzzing in the Beehive State this year, with a strong high school crop that will be worth watching to see if players sign or head to college.
Scouting Reports: Upper Rockies
As usual, Idaho supplies the overwhelming majority of the talent in the upper Rockies, with likely first-rounder Beau Mills leading the way.
Scouting Reports: Pacific Rim
The 49th and 50th states have little to offer this year, with a few interesting college players in Hawaii and a few Alaskan high school players who might bear watching as college players.
Scouting Reports: Oregon
Once again Oregon has a decent crop of draftable talent including a pair of solid Oregon State prospects.
Scouting Reports: New Mexico
The Land of Enchantment didn't have much to enchant scouts this year, with New Mexico Junior College offering the most talent.
Scouting Reports: Nevada
It's a nice year in the Silver State, with four players among the Top 200 Prospects and a particularly good junior-college crop.
Scouting Reports: Colorado
The limited talent available in the Centennial State this year will, for the most part, head to college for more seasoning.
Scouting Reports: Arizona
Arizona's talent level isn't up to level of recent years, but it should bounce back in 2008.
Scouting Reports: California
The Golden State has a wealth of hitters this year, while the college programs were stronger in pitching. With 125 players rated, there was plenty of talent for teams to sift through.
