MLB | Jameson Taillon overrated?
One MLB scout said it would shock him if Texas high school P Jameson Taillon were the second overall pick in the June draft, according to ESPN's Jayson Stark. "The night I saw him, there was no way I would have thought that kid should be the second pick in the country," the scout said. "Here's a kid out there throwing 93 to 98 (miles per hour), and high school kids were whacking his fastball. I'll tell you. It was puzzling. This kid is 6-foot-6 with a big fastball, so you'd think there'd be some intimidation factor. But I didn't see any intimidation factor whatsoever. I think, with his arm, he's probably fixable. But I'd hate to pay a kid the money he's looking for with the thought that we've got to fix some things."
