Choice Notes

If you're a fan of puns, the A's really couldn't have made a better *ahem* pick.  Here are some links while we wait for the draft to resume at 9 AM.
  • Here's some video of Michael Choice in action.  Too bad the clip packages includes footage of him striking out while playing for Team USA.
  • Here's an interview with him.  Thankfully, he looks much more comfortable on the field.
  • Some comps that people are throwing out are: Jesse Barfield, Danny Tartabull, Ron Gant, and Greg Vaughn.
  • Although UT-Arlington isn't exactly a baseball powerhouse, 8 current and former major leaguers have gone there, including Hunter Pence and John Lackey.
  • The A's plan on starting Choice out in center, but very few people believe he'll stick there.
  • You can find a list of the best available talent in the draft, here, here, and here.  Some of these players fell due to signability concerns, so we'll see how aggressive the A's are in taking these players.
