Personally, I'm hoping to get D.J. Peterson out of New Mexico with that 12th pick. The M's tried to get him back in '10 out of High School in the 33rd round, but it just didn't happen.
Peterson is a 6'1", 205 lb 1st/3rd baseman who from the very first day on campus was a team leader. As a freshman he lead the Lobos in just about every statistical category. As a Sophomore last year he cranked things up a couple of notches and brought home some serious bling (Louisville Slugger First Team All-American, Mountain West Co-Player of the Year, Semifinalist for the Golden Spikes and the Dick Howser Trophy, and named to USA Baseball's Collegiate National Team).
The best thing about Peterson, for me, is that he and his Lobos will be coming to Colorado Springs in early April, so I'll be able to get a first hand look at the kid :)

Peterson is a player the Mariners do like a lot and they did try to get him before. Peterson at 12, as things stand right now, is a reach.
We'll see how it all progresses, however.
I'll see Peterson in Tempe on March 13.

Littlefield is from Mark Morris High School in Longview, not WF West.

Any chance Bourn or Lohse remain unsigned until AFTER the draft so a team would not have to give up its 1st round pick? At one point does Boras lower his demands and accept the best offer out there?

I am a C. Moran guy. I rate his bat like that of Zunino and can be tapped to stay at 3B. I also think he would be the fastest bat to the majors. Then I would hope the M's move P. Kivlehan to LF. His speed is high end and think he could be on a faster track if he moved to the OF.

My guy is Justin Williams. He almost looks like he has so much raw ability to pass up. It would be sort of a project for the M's but I think it is worth the risk. Jason any sneaky picks the M's could make in the late rounds? Another reliever or another Paxton or a power bat in the late rounds.

It's hard to "have a guy" this year for the M's because we pick at #12. In past years with our top 5 picks we could all "have a guy" because we knew that player would most likely be there. This year is different. This year, you take the best player that falls to you and call it a day, a pitcher, position player, doesn't matter, whoever falls.
I personally hope a position player the M's really like falls to them, but I will be fine with a pitcher as well.

What..... no compensation pick for Figgins?

We're lucky we didn't lose a pick for releasing Figgins.
I have no idea who the M's will pick but it's nice to have faith that they will most likely get a player with some real value and not just with their first pick but further down the draft as well.
