Jonathan Mayo's Mock Draft's Jonathan Mayo posted his first 20 picks today. Who does he have the Astros taking at #8/#19?

#8: Zack Cox, 3B - Arkansas
A rib-cage injury has kept Cox largely out of action the past several games, but that shouldn't hurt his Draft stock, with many believing he's the best advanced bat in the country. A guy who can get to the bigs quickly and contribute might be just what the Astros are looking for.

#19: Delino DeSheilds, Jr, OF - Woodward Park Academy (GA)
The buzz about Houston liking DeShields has been loud, to the point where some think the Astros would take him with their first pick to make sure they got him. In this scenario, they get the safe college guy up top and the high school toolsy guy here.
