Softball Draft

The NFL Draft is this weekend, where NFL clubs pick the best college players available to fill their rosters.

This got me to think what if there was a softball draft? What would be my Top Ten Draft Picks?

Pick #10 John Brown - Pitcher - some may ask why do you pick the most dominant pitcher in softball at #10 - easy because he's not a legal modified pitcher, nice guy, excellent player - he's just a slinger - looks like he's throwing a freebie. But if a league lets him in he's un-hittable.
Pick # 9 Kip - Choice Parts - stud hitter, good fielder, and a very nice laid back guy who0 dates only models - any team would be lucky to have him
Pick #8 Gubi - I know this is a bit of a stretch - he's like the Alphonso Soriano of softball - HIGH RISK HIGH REWARD - but he's a very good player who is loyal and responsible - that's a very good quality - only downside is that it's only a matter of time before he gets arrested for road rage
Pick # 7 Hector from West - arguably the best defensive player in all of softball - is also a gamer the only downside I see is that he loves freestyle music too much :)
Pick #6 Geo from West - gamer - bad hamstring only prevents him from going higher in the draft - outstanding lefty power - is a class winner - only downside is that he has umpire rage
Pick # 5 Carlos Con from West ( why not put all of West on this list) - stud switch hitter with power, ridiculous sling pitcher who pitches modified very well - nice guy who is also an intimating enforcer - always a Rick favorite - actually was a Rick player but Rick got him too soon before I knew how to win or at least have a chance to win
Pick #4 Herman - Highlanders - there are players who are faster, bigger, stronger - but few are smarter and more clutch - I call him PBS because he's boring but informative - you need him
Pick #3 tie Lefty - Destroyers - simply a hitting machine , Weechie - Destroyers - when he's not a guest at the hotel - he's absolutely AWESOME
Pick #2 Crazy Lou Gonzalez - sometimes I think he invented softball - he truly lives from this - a true winner - only downside I see is that he puts his #22 on all the clothes he wears

and for the Controversial #1 Pick

1. C'mon - You all knew I would pick John "El Nino" Castillo - ironic that I pick Castillo #1 even though I can't even count the number of times people have told me "I can't play with this guy" - Face it he has a Power on and Power off switch - and when the Power is On he's in the top echelon on players in all of softball, when the Power is Off then it's a whole different ballgame

Honorable Mention Draft Pick - Gilberto - Destroyers, Knockout - old school guy who I can barely understands - but the man is a winner - Is the most confident player I know - he once told me "Give me a team that can field and I can even beat the Yankees" - he definetly has the 6th Tool - CONFIDENCE!!!!!!!!!!!!
