With the 21st pick...

The Astros select Jiovanni Mier from Bonita HS (CA). 6'2" and 175lbs Shortstop.

MLB.com says he "Looks like a young Nomar." Also:
-Free swinger
-Should develop some power
-Great defense makes up for slow speed.
-Excellent instincts
-Quiet confidence
-Excellent intangibles

Sounds like the Astros just got a do-over on that Nevin pick, if MLB is correct. Sleep well, Hal Newhouser.
