BaseballAmerica.com: Chat: Draft Chat With Jim Callis: "Ty (Chicago): Hayden who? Please, please explain this to me, and to all Cubs fans. Thanks.
Jim Callis: The Cubs saw Hayden Simpson throw 92-97 twice in four days at the D-II World Series, and they think he'll have four average or better pitches, love the makeup, believe he could move quickly. I don't think that was the consensus on him, but the Cubs saw him very well and were afraid another team with multiple picks might draft him before they could pick again. Stunned me, though."
Jordan Zimmermann anyone?
