Hold your breath and wait for the day Johnny Manziel is playing at Petco Park.

I hope you also aren't holding your breath at any of the other kids drafted in the 28th round playing in the major leagues.

People get so butthurt over anything and everything Johnny Manziel. It's comical.

Mike Piazza was drafted in the 62nd round. That turned out alright I think

Laird isn't eligible for the draft! He is only a sophomore.

Actually Laird has a very quick bat. Go back and read reports from when he was a Freshman. This year he has chosen to focus on going opposite field.

Heard Manziel was a 1st round pick for the pro funnel team.

I personally think Manziel has a better chance to make the MLB then a 30th round guy like McMullen

Why? He hasn't played baseball in 3-4 years.

McMullen has decent potential IMO. I think he was drafted so low because he never became a complete hitter. He tried to pull most everything, causing him to pull off of outside pitches.

Well, when Manziel was a junior in high school he was being touted as a possible top pick in baseball, when he decided to quit. So it is unknown. McMullen on the other hand wasn't even a starting position player in college and didn't bat over .300.

ETA: Not hating on McMullen just using as an example

They don't like people being rewarded for their bad behavior.

Guess it's probably safe to say you fit into the category of butthurt people.

May I ask you what bad behavior Johnny has partaken in?

He likes to go out and get drunk and frick sexy sloots. Nobody that's in college, much less a Heisman winning QB, ever does that.

Back to the original question (ridiculous how a post can morph into another worthless topic)...Laird has mechanically flawed throwing motion. Surprised a little league coach did not fix it. Never seen a college player throw like that before Laird.
