I'm leaning this way too - preferably a lefty. Of course with a whole season to go you have to see who distinguishes themselves.

But I took them away from all that. Now they work for me.

Probably wouldn't take a HS SS... Singer, McClanahan, or Mize

Way too early, but I feel like I’ll talk myself into Madrigal being the next altuve.

I like high school LHP, Matthew Liberatore a lot. A power lefty is missing in this system. Hopefully, a few college arms emerge but I'm not high on any of them including Singer. Madrigal is a special hitter but I think he's 2B only and that's the deepest position in our system.

Is liberatore the kid I remember gaining quite a bit of velocity last year?

I don't have access to your memory (yet) but he has gained velocity to go along with a good change-up and breaking ball. His rise reminds me a little of Gore from this year.

Very excited to have the #3 pick. Just saw this from Callis in August and was pleasantly surprised:

"The 2018 Draft crop is shaping up as the best since '11, a once-in-a-decade collection of talent that included Gerrit Cole, Trevor Bauer, Dylan Bundy, Anthony Rendon, Archie Bradley, Francisco Lindor, Javier Baez, George Springer and the late Jose Fernandez in the first 14 picks.

While the high schoolers tantalize more with their upside, which is normally the case, the collegians are better than usual. Led by Florida right-hander Brady Singer, a trio of pitchers stand out the most, but there's also depth with position players as well.
"It's a pretty good college group," an American League scouting director said. "The high school group is strong and the college group is solid. It's going to be a good Draft."

See. We didn't need to tank the season. There will be plenty of good choices at #3. We just need to pick wisely and hope for the best.

I'd go for Steele Walker. He's gotta be good.

Also Slade Cecconi
