07:11 AM ET 05.21 | As the draft nears, the jockeying for No. 1 seems to be a two-man race between Oklahoma's Jonathan Gray and Stanford's Mark Appel. AL executive: "I'd take Appel. Appel has a little more secondary stuff. The only factor is you have to look a little deeper into his makeup. Gray is a warrior. I'm not sure on Appel." ... NL executive: "I'd take Gray over Appel. The difference right now is that Appel's delivery is more refined but Gray is a better athlete. ... Appel presently has a better breaking ball, but Gray's has as good or more bite when it's on. Gray has a bigger arm velocity-wise. In the end, I'm going with the guy I think will have better stuff and better makeup, and that's Gray."

Idle speculation. None of that above-mentioned BS will mean anything in a few years. As Doris once said, "Que sera, sera."

Sounds like every team is trashing this guy, hopeing that he'll fall to them.
