...and Matt Mangini

With the supplemental round pick at #52 overall, the M's have selected Oklahoma State 3B Matt Mangini. He rocked the Cape last summer (a wood bat league where he won the batting title), but had a disappointing year in college this year, so his stock had slipped considerably. He's a lefty who is big (6'4"), and who scouts think should develop power. That's right, M's fans. Left-handed sock.

I can't quibble too much with this pick; we could use a project at 3B, and Mangini is intriguing due to his success with wood against high-level competition.
