Last year I made a mock draft from a Cubs fans point of view. What I mean by that is that I in addition to brief analysis on the player and the pick, I add a bit of what I think the Cubs may or may not be thinking with that player. This year we went with the first 41 picks, which includes the Cubs 2nd rounder.
We've been talking Gray or Appel for so long at the top, but yesterday I heard that the Cubs may have their choice between the two and with everyone going Gray-Appel as the top two, I decided to roll with that information and have Houston surprise at the top for the 2nd straight year. Their choice shakes things up the draft as it has a ripple effect over the next several picks.
